Earth and Environmental Geoscience Informatics, Dartmouth College
The Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College invites applications for an assistant or associate rank tenure-track position in the area of earth and environmental geoscience informatics with specific application to one or more of our core research areas: ice and climate systems, watershed and soil processes, or environmental (bio)geochemistry. We are especially interested in candidates who combine a focus on understanding fundamental physical and/or geochemical processes in modern or ancient systems using innovative analyses of big and/or broad datasets and to candidates who provide synergy with ongoing research activities within the department and elsewhere at Dartmouth.
The Department of Earth Sciences is home to 11 tenured and tenure-track faculty members in the School of Arts and Sciences, and enjoys strong Ph.D. and M.S. programs as well as outstanding undergraduate majors. To create an atmosphere supportive of research, Dartmouth College offers new faculty members grants for research-related expenses, a quarter of sabbatical leave for each three academic years in residence, and flexible scheduling of teaching responsibilities. We have strong traditions in graduate and undergraduate teaching, and the successful candidate will help develop curricular and research opportunities in the analysis of big and/or broad data. Teaching responsibilities consist of three courses per year at both introductory and graduate-levels.
