Assistant Professor (Tenure Track), Mineralogy and Geochemistry—Dartmouth College
The Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College invites applications for a tenure- track assistant professor of mineralogy and geochemistry. Particular attention will be given to candidates with research interests in applied mineralogy related to mineral-microbe or water- rock interactions. We are especially interested in candidates who focus on understanding fundamental processes through a state-of-the-art field and laboratory research program that provides synergy with existing research activities within the department and elsewhere at Dartmouth, including the Department’s core research areas: earth and planetary evolution, surface processes, and ice and climate systems. The successful candidate will continue Dartmouth's strong traditions in graduate and undergraduate research and teaching. Teaching responsibilities consist of three courses spread over four ten-week terms. One or more of these courses will have a core focus on the fundamentals of mineralogy.
The Department of Earth Sciences is home to 11 tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the School of Arts and Sciences and enjoys strong Ph.D. and M.S. programs and outstanding undergraduate majors. To create an atmosphere supportive of research, Dartmouth College offers new 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. Dartmouth College has undergraduate and graduate student populations that are diverse by many measures. We seek applicants with a record of successful teaching and mentoring of students from all backgrounds (including first-generation college students, low-income students, racial and ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQ, etc.). Dartmouth provides opportunities to participate in undergraduate diversity initiatives in STEM research, such as our Women in Science Program, E. E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE).
