The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Boston College invites qualified candidates to apply for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. We seek candidates with expertise in low-temperature geochemistry with application to Earth’s near-surface environment in the context of global change. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous externally funded research program integrated with excellence in teaching within the Earth and Environmental Sciences curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate should have research interests compatible with those of the current faculty in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, including, but not limited to: understanding modern processes related to the exchange of water, carbon, and pollutants between the atmosphere, the oceans, the terrestrial hydrosphere, land surface, and urban systems, or reconstructing/understanding ancient environments and climates. We particularly encourage applicants whose research uses stable isotopes, integrates field-based research, and/or crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries in the sciences, thereby having the potential to also conduct innovative research within the forthcoming Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society at Boston College (https://www.bc.edu/bc-web/schools/mcas/sites/schiller-institute.html). Information on the department, its faculty and research strengths can be viewed at http://www.bc.edu/eesciences.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in the geosciences or a related field at the time of appointment. Complete applications should be submitted online at: https://apply.interfolio.com/53801 and must include a curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2018. Inquiries may be directed to Prof. Jeremy Shakun, Search Committee Chair (jeremy.shakun@bc.edu), or Ethan Baxter, Department Chair (ethan.baxter@bc.edu).
