Tenure Track Position in Aqueous & Environmental Geochemistry
Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts Amherst
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 2017. 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

Review of applicants will begin 1 November 2016 and continue until the
ideal candidate is identified.
