This position can be structured as a traditional 9-month, 1.0 FTE (full time equivalent) faculty position, or alternatively as a 12-month position at 0.75 FTE. In either case, there is an expectation that the successful candidate will secure funding to augment the university-provided salary.

We seek a colleague who will develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program in the field of hydrogeology. The successful applicant is expected to explore the subsurface and/or surface distribution and movement of water in rock and soil to clarify interactions between water, climate, terrestrial and/or marine landscapes, and human systems, and who will teach high quality undergraduate and graduate courses. We seek an outstanding scholar with experience in fundamental Earth Science questions across a range of temporal and spatial scales, such as linkages between the hydrologic cycle, erosion and weathering; terrestrial water supply resilience in a changing environment; or storage, transport, or remediation of environmental contaminants. These issues are critical to existing research programs and an effective curriculum within CEOAS and across OSU. This position will have the opportunity to develop collaborations within CEOAS and across OSU, including in Earth surface processes, environmental geochemistry, fluid-mineral reactions, and/or paleoclimate, and have access to world class existing campus geochemical laboratories, field sites, and imaging facilities.

OSU maintains an institution-wide commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and community, and seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and student body that includes members of historically underrepresented groups. We strive to build and sustain a welcoming and supportive campus environment. OSU is recognized as a center of national excellence in water studies, and CEOAS is a leader in the cross-campus water network. The successful applicant will join the large group of outstanding CEOAS scientists and will be expected to teach at all levels in our undergraduate and graduate curriculum and contribute to the advising and mentoring of undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars. The successful applicant will demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching hydrogeology through an understanding of the physics of heat, mass, and fluid transport in rocks and soils and build a vibrant, externally funded research program addressing topics such as groundwater usage and availability, contaminant storage, fate, and transport, aquifer storage and recovery, or groundwater-surface water interactions. The position will help maintain CEOAS as a key player within a high profile and extensive campus-wide framework of water-related studies, and position CEOAS for addressing critical issues related to anticipated hydrological changes at local to global levels. The critical importance of water science at OSU is recognized through strategic plans (see OSU’s Vision2030 document), and an upcoming philanthropic focus on water.

For academic-track positions, it is CEOAS policy to confer indefinite tenure when promoted to Associate Professor, with indefinite tenure granted on either a 9-month, 1.0 FTE or 12-month, 0.75 FTE appointment basis.

Requirements include Ph.D. in hydrogeology, geology, hydrology, water resources, or other related discipline by the start of employment. OSU is an AA/EOE/Vets/Disabled.
