A diverse community of physical, geospatial, and social scientists composed of over 35 faculty members seeks to add a dynamic and broadly trained geoscientist who employs field, laboratory and/or modeling techniques for the study of Earth materials (e.g., minerals, sediments, and/or resources) for an August 2024 appointment. See below for details.
Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled. Contact search committee co-chairs Dr. Patricia Fall (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Martha Cary (Missy) Eppes (email@example.com) with questions. More information and application instructions can be found at https://jobs.charlotte.edu/postings/52723 Position #006922.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Or, please spread the word!
Candidates are required to have earned a PhD in Geology, Geosciences, Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Physical Geography, or a related field at the time of appointment. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate evidence of scholarly productivity, their ability to secure appropriate external funding, and the potential for engaging students in a diverse academic environment. Finalists will be asked to discuss how their teaching practices engage students of different ages, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, identities, and abilities, helping to remove barriers in order to ensure the success of all students regardless of their entry pathway into the university.
Candidates should demonstrate the ability to contribute to the department’s undergraduate curricula in Geology, Geography, and/or Earth and Environmental Sciences programs, and graduate curricula in Earth Sciences, Geography and/or the interdisciplinary Infrastructure and Environmental Systems (INES) degrees. Applicants should explain how they will build a sustainable, cutting-edge, externally funded research program, and develop coursework in their area of expertise.
Desired qualifications include the ability to articulate their potential for interdisciplinary collaboration in their research and teaching as it relates to Earth surface geosciences, especially in the “Critical Zone,” defined as the region where Earth’s atmosphere, biosphere, lithosphere and hydrosphere interact. We seek a geoscientist who can relate their research to broader questions addressing, for example, critical zone evolution, climate change, human-environment interaction, health and hazards, energy transitions, and/or sustainability.
