    Assistant Professor in Geomorphology

The Geosciences Department at Williams College invites applications for 
a tenure-track appointment in geomorphology, at the rank of Assistant 
Professor, beginning 1 July 2016. We seek a colleague who is committed 
to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level, who will provide a 
balance of classroom, field, and laboratory experiences for our 
students, and who can develop a vibrant and productive research program 
that engages undergraduates. The successful candidate will teach three 
courses per year (lectures plus labs). Teaching responsibilities 
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 
courses include, but are not limited to, tectonic geomorphology, 
critical zone processes, landscape dynamics, human perturbations, 
hydrology, or geographic information systems.

The Geosciences Department is committed to providing excellent training 
for future geoscientists, as well as teaching earth science as part of a 
balanced liberal arts education. Our department works closely with the 
Center for Environmental Studies at Williams College, and the successful 
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 
the growing diversity of the academic community through their teaching, 
scholarship and service. Enthusiasm for teaching, mentoring and advising 
a diverse population of students is essential. Further information about 
the department can be found athttp://web.williams.edu/Geoscience/. 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. or dissertation completed by the time of 
appointment, demonstrated teaching experience, and a vigorous research 
program suitable for undergraduate student involvement. Deadline for 
applications is 30 November 2015. We welcome applications from members 
of groups traditionally underrepresented in the field, and applicants 
are encouraged to state in their cover letter how they will enhance the 
diversity of offerings and educational experiences if hired. All offers 
of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check.
