Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Environmental Biogeochemistry, 

Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, The University of Texas Arlington

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Texas Arlington invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in broadly construed areas related to environmental biogeochemistry at the level of Assistant Professor. Faculty candidates for higher ranks with exceptional track records will also be considered. We seek a broadly-trained biogeochemist who complements the interdisciplinary nature of our geology and environmental science programs. While candidates from all sub-disciplines of earth and environmental sciences are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in analytical biogeochemistry, biogeochemical data mining, climate and biogeochemical dynamical or statistical modeling, or the exposome. Opportunities for collaboration exist with departmental research groups (https://www.uta.edu/ees/) and other research groups of data science, analytical chemistry, ecology, and genomics in the College of Science. Our geochemistry analytical strengths include the on-campus Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies (http://www.uta.edu/sirt/).

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in earth and environmental sciences or a related field.  Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equity in education through their scholarship, teaching, and/or service. We are deeply committed to increasing diversity and especially encourage applications from women and minority scholars.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For full consideration, applications should be submitted by November 16th, 2018. Applicants must apply online at https://uta.peopleadmin.com/postinhgs/7068. A complete application includes: 1) curriculum vitae, 2) summary of current and proposed research (max. two pages), 3) statement of teaching interests (max. one page), and 4) names and email addresses of three references.

Question regarding this position may be directed via email to Dr. Max Hu, Search Committee Chair (maxhu@uta.edu) or Dr. Arne Winguth, Department Chair (awinguth@uta.edu).
