Job Details

The Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Case Western Reserve University seeks candidates for a non-tenure-track Visiting Assistant Professor position for the 2024–2025 academic year starting August 20, 2024. We seek candidates with a broad background in the geosciences who will contribute to teaching and research in the department. The successful candidate will teach courses related to climate and the environment and may have the opportunity to advise undergraduate students on research projects. Courses to be taught likely include introductory courses as well as upper level courses in hydrogeology, geomorphology, and/or courses in the candidate’s specialty. The successful candidate will be committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Department and University. Previous experience with a variety of teaching methods and curricular perspectives and/or interacting with members of underrepresented communities are considered assets.

The expected course load for the position is three courses per year. The position requires completion of the PhD degree by August 1, 2024, and a record of research and teaching commensurate with rank.

Application Instructions

The applicant should submit an application via InterFolio at that includes (1) a cover letter that addresses their qualifications and how they will contribute to teaching and research in the Department, (2) a diversity statement that explains how diversity, equity, and inclusion inform their past and/or future professional experience (scholarship, teaching, service) with further details available on the application webpage, and (3) a CV. Applicants should also arrange to have two letters of recommendation submitted via the application website by May 17th, 2024.
The diversity, equity, and inclusion statement should explain either:
a) How a candidate’s research, teaching, and/or service has contributed to diversity, equity and inclusion within their scholarly field(s) and/or how their individual and/or collaborative efforts have promoted structural justice inside and outside institutions of higher learning. This statement should also reflect on the ways in which the candidate’s continued efforts will foster a culture of diversity, pluralism, and individual difference at Case Western Reserve University into the future.
b) How the candidate values diversity, equity, and inclusion within their research and discipline(s) and how their own scholarly work might contribute to structural justice inside and outside institutions of higher learning. This statement should also suggest how the candidate’s work, while as a member of Case Western Reserve University, will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion and how moving forward they intend to foster a culture of diversity pluralism, and individual difference.
