Tenure Track Faculty Position in Aqueous and Environmental Geochemistry The
Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts invites
applications for a tenure track position in Aqueous and Environmental
Geochemistry at the Assistant Professor level starting Fall 2016. We are
seeking talented applicants qualified for an assistant professor position.
Under exceptional circumstances, highly qualified candidates at other ranks
may receive consideration. A Ph.D. in Geosciences or related field is
required at the time of appointment and post-doctoral experience is
preferred. The successful candidate will have research interests within the
broad area covered by the position title. These areas might include
critical zone and near-surface weathering, processes that occur at
solid-water interface, including biological interactions, or chemical,
physical and biological processes controlling the transport of dissolved
species. It is hoped that the candidate will have interests in isotope or
trace element geochemistry and the application of geochemical tools to a
broad range of scientific questions. Research within the Department of
Geosciences revolves around four main clusters: Global Change and Surface
Processes; Water; Dynamic Earth; and Geography, Society and the
Environment. It is expected that successful candidate will develop a
rigorous externally funded research program and contribute to one or more
of these research themes. Candidates who have experience in integrating
geochemical tools with quantitative approaches to solving problems in
natural systems are especially encouraged Field-oriented research that
could be incorporated into both undergraduate and graduate courses will be
an asset. Teaching will involve participation in a large-enrollment
introductory course in addition to appropriate advanced undergraduate and
graduate courses.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, CV, research statement, teaching
statement, and contact information for three referees familiar with their
research and teaching efforts to:
