Denison University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the Department of Geosciences, to begin in August 2019. We seek a broadly-trained scientist engaged in the study of sedimentology and/or stratigraphy that complements our department’s current strengths in paleontology, petrology/volcanology, process geomorphology, and structural geology. Successful candidates should demonstrate potential to be an outstanding teacher, active scholar, and contributor to the continued growth of the Department and University. Candidates must have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment.


We seek a colleague who is committed to teaching excellence in the liberal arts tradition. Ideal candidates will have broad interests beyond their individual specialties and will provide a balance of classroom, field and laboratory experiences for our students. Candidates must have the desire and ability to teach courses across all levels of the curriculum. The typical teaching load is three lab courses per year. In addition, successful candidates are expected to maintain a vibrant and productive research program that actively incorporates undergraduate students.


Denison University is an academically rigorous liberal arts college with an increasingly diverse campus community. It offers a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package. Denison is located in the village of Granville, 30 minutes from Columbus, Ohio, the state capitol, which hosts a wide range of cultural and artistic opportunities. Granville also offers an excellent public school system and easy access to outdoor activities.

In addition, please list the contact information for three persons who know your teaching and scholarship well who will then be requested to upload reference letters. Completed application materials submitted by October 22, 2018 will receive full consideration. Evaluation will continue until the position is filled. For those attending, we will meet with selected candidates at the 2018 GSA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis and the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting in Washington DC.
