The University of Akron is expanding its teaching strengths in the 
Department of Geosciences by opening two non-tenure track positions with 
foci on earth systems history and mineralogy. Current faculty members 
serve approximately 40 M.S. students and 130 undergraduates majoring in 
geology, environmental science, geographic information systems and 
geography.  Candidates must possess Ph.D (or abd) in a geosciences 
field. Competitive earth systems history candidates (Job #8534) must
