Two term appointments open for 2022-23 at UMN-Duluth
University of Minnesota Duluth, Minnesota, United States
Start reviewing process: 3 May 2022

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota Duluth invites applications for two full-time term faculty appointments due to recent retirements to begin August 22, 2022 and end May 21, 2023. We seek two broad-based earth scientists who will teach courses that help fill our curricular needs. Each of these candidates would teach 2-3 classes/semester during the academic year from among an introductory-level course on Geology and Earth Systems, Earth History, Structural Geology, Economic Geology, Data Science, GIS, and advanced electives that broaden our environmental science and geology curricula. We welcome candidates who seek to incorporate elements of environmental justice into their courses. Appointment at the Assistant Professor level is preferred and requires the completion of a PhD; however, applicants with appropriate qualifications who are still ABD may be considered for an Instructor position.

Required qualifications for the position are: 1) completion of a Ph.D. or ABD status in earth science or related field by August 22, 2022, from a regionally-accredited university or equivalent program; 2) experience in teaching, which may include teaching assistantships. Preferred qualifications are: 1) Ph.D. in earth science or related field, 2) at least one semester teaching college courses as lead instructor, 3) experience with course development, 4) experience in integrating themes of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice in teaching.

Duluth is a vibrant small city with exceptional outdoor, recreational and cultural opportunities. We offer BA and BS degrees in Geological Sciences and Environmental Science and an MS in Earth Sciences. Detailed information about our undergraduate and graduate programs is available at

The University recognizes and values the importance of diversity and inclusion in enriching the employment experience of its employees and in supporting the academic mission. The University is committed to attracting and retaining employees with varying identities and backgrounds. We encourage applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.

Applicants should submit a cover letter; CV with a list of three professional references; a teaching statement including which courses you are interested in teaching; and a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement. The DEI statement should address the applicant’s commitment to and experience fostering inclusion, equity, justice, and diversity in higher education. Applications can be submitted online at

Review of applications is expected to begin on May 3, and will continue until the position is filled. For further information regarding this position, please contact Karen Gran at
