Job Summary

Tenure-Track Earth Systems Science
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences

The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute in Troy, NY invites applications for a tenure/tenure-track
position at the assistant, associate or full professor level in Earth
Systems Science. The E&ES Department research areas include experimental,
analytical and environmental geochemistry, petrology of Earth's systems,
environmental informatics, solid Earth geophysics, paleoclimate, origins of
life and geomicrobiology. We are seeking applicants whose research will
complement and grow these strengths and whose research programs address
fundamental problems in Earth Systems science. Disciplinary areas that are
of particular interest include, but are not limited to, natural systems and
environmental geochemistry, early Earth environments, geochemical proxies
for interpreting ancient environments, global ocean-atmosphere-geosphere
interactions, and planetary evolution. Additionally, research programs that
address fundamental questions in hydrogeology and/or remote sensing will
serve to expand the Earth Systems science program at RPI.

Successful candidate will have duties that include teaching graduate and
undergraduate courses in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences,
engaging in the Environmental Sciences undergraduate program, developing and
maintaining robust programs of research and scholarship, and providing
service to the department, the School of Science, and to Rensselaer.

Rensselaer has recently initiated several bold, new initiatives; the
successful candidate should interface with one or more of these areas.
Examples of these include the Rensselaer Institute for Data Exploration and
Applications (IDEA; http://idea.rpi.edu), the Darrin Fresh Water Institute
(DFWI), a comprehensive freshwater ecological field station and
Institute-wide research effort that hosts The Jefferson Project at Lake
George (http://jeffersonproject.rpi.edu), and the New York Center for
Astrobiology. In addition, the Institute is conceptualizing a new, broader
initiative that will bring together research and education activities in
water, environment, ecology, and sustainability.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. or foreign degree equivalent in
geoscience or related discipline, along with the ability to demonstrate,
through accomplishments, a record of excellence in research and scholarship,
evidence or the promise of future distinction in high quality educational
activities including teaching and advising, and a proven commitment to
professional service. The rank at the time of hire will be commensurate with
the candidate's experience and accomplishments.

We welcome candidates who will bring diverse intellectual, geographical,
gender, and ethnic perspectives to Rensselaer's work and campus communities.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity,
Race/Gender/Veterans/Disability Employer.
