The Department of Biology, Geology and Environmental Science (BGE) at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in hydrology and aqueous geochemistry beginning August 2019. We seek candidates who have strong potential for excellence in teaching and who use computational approaches, such as numerical modeling or GIS, in their research to address innovative questions in the fields of hydrology and aqueous geochemistry that are linked to urban dynamics and/or public health. The successful candidate will provide evidence of the ability to (1) teach at all levels of the curriculum, from the undergraduate to Masters level, (2) develop an independent research program that involves students and attracts extramural funding, (3) provide university, community, and professional service, and (4) otherwise support UTC's Strategic Plan.

Candidates should also be willing to engage in a variety of instructional modalities, including online instruction. In addition, candidates should demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. In particular, we are interested in candidates who have contributed to, or have plans to contribute to, programs that aim to increase the participation of underrepresented students and/or faculty in the sciences.
