The Geosciences Department at Hamilton College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2023. We are seeking a broadly trained hydrogeologist who can effectively teach the fundamental concepts of hydrogeology in the classroom, lab, and field and who can contribute to our college's interdisciplinary program in Environmental Studies by teaching courses and mentoring ES students on issues related to water resources. We are especially interested in candidates who can demonstrate their experience in working with or teaching diverse student populations. Annual teaching responsibilities will include a topical introductory geology course and a core course in hydrogeology, both with labs and field trips, plus an elective course of the candidate’s choosing. The candidate will regularly help lead department field trips and will have an opportunity to teach during the summer in the College’s Higher Educational Opportunity Program. The position also requires institutional service, including academic advising of undergraduate students, after the first year.
Research is a cornerstone of undergraduate education at Hamilton. The candidate will be expected to maintain a robust scholarly research program in hydrogeology. Strong candidates will be able to demonstrate their ability to effectively mentor undergraduate students as part of their research. All Hamilton students complete a Senior Project and commonly participate in research during the academic year and over the summer.
Candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred, although ABD applicants will also be considered. Candidates must submit the following at http://apply.interfolio.com/111914: 1) a cover letter, 2) a teaching statement that describes your teaching philosophy, 3) a research statement that describes your research plans in the context of Hamilton's undergraduate setting, 4) a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement that addresses how you would further the College's goal of building a diverse educational environment through your teaching, scholarship, and/or service, 5) a complete curriculum vitae, and 6) names and addresses of three professional referees.
