that engages undergraduates. The successful candidate will teach three

typically include an introductory course in environmental/surficial
geosciences, a departmental core course in geomorphology, and another
upper-level course based on the candidate’s interests. Examples of such

critical zone processes, landscape dynamics, human perturbations,
hydrology, or geographic information systems.
The Geosciences Department is committed to providing excellent training

candidate will be expected to mount courses that would be cross-listed
with that program.
The College is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to

scholarship and service. Enthusiasm for teaching, mentoring and advising
a diverse population of students is essential. Further information about
