Job Details

The Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professsor in the general area of geochemistry. We are particularly interested in low temperature geochemists and biogeochemists with research in the broad area of modern surface processes and/or land-water interactions. We will prioritize applicants who focus on understanding fundamental processes with a state-of-the-art laboratory, modeling, and/or field research program, provide synergy with existing research activities at Dartmouth, and actively support the Department’s commitment to promoting diversity.  

As the person in this position will continue Dartmouth's strong traditions in graduate and undergraduate research and teaching, effective classroom teaching is essential for this position.  Teaching responsibilities consist of three courses spread over four ten-week terms.  The teaching assignment for this position includes a course on low temperature aqueous geochemistry.  To create an atmosphere supportive of research, Dartmouth offers faculty members grants for research-related expenses, a quarter of sabbatical leave for each three academic years in residence, and flexible scheduling of teaching responsibilities. The Department of Earth Sciences is home to 13 faculty members in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and enjoys excellent graduate (Ph.D. and M.S.) and undergraduate programs. We are especially interested in applicants who have a demonstrated ability to contribute to Dartmouth's diversity initiatives in STEM research, such as the Women in Science Program, E.E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and the Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE).  Beyond our department, our graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are supported by the Guarini School for Graduate and Advanced Studies, including their diversity and inclusion initiatives

The Department of Earth Sciences and Dartmouth are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity, that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. The specific efforts of the Earth Sciences department are highlighted on our website. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes. Applicants should provide a statement addressing how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This statement will be evaluated as part of the selection process.

Qualifications: Applicants should have a PhD in Earth Sciences, Geology, or a closely related field, or be ABD with degree received before the start of the appointment. Effective classroom teaching is essential for this position.

Application Instructions:  Please submit all materials electronically via Interfolio:

  1.   Cover letter,   
  2. Curriculum vitae, including contact information for three references,
  3. Statement of teaching experience and interests, 
  4. Statement of research interests and objectives, 
  5. Statement addressing how the applicant’s teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion;
