    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

Committee Chair (search at geo.umass.edu <mailto:search at geo.umass.edu>). 
Review of applicants will begin 1 November 2016 and continue until the 
ideal candidate is identified.

The university is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty 
and student body. The University of Massachusetts Amherst is an

applications from these and other protected group members. Because broad 
diversity is essential to an inclusive climate and critical to the 
University's goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will 
holistically assess the many qualifications of each applicant and 
favorably consider an individual's record working with students and 
colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and 
backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities. We will 
also favorably consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome 
barriers to an academic degree and career.
