Assistant Professor, Tenure-Track, Environmental Science, Rowan University
Rowan University seeks to fill two Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) positions starting September 1, 2019 in the Department of Environmental Science. We seek outstanding candidates who hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Science or a closely related discipline, such as biology, chemistry, marine science and geoscience. Successful candidates are expected to develop and maintain an active, highly-visible, extramurally-funded research program with outstanding scholarship and to demonstrate excellence in teaching and mentoring both graduate and undergraduate students.
We seek candidates who have a big picture, global focus -- established international collaborations are a plus. The areas of expertise are open, however, we seek applicants engaged in the study of rapid, worldwide environmental change, in its many aspects. We have particular interest in areas of study at the forefront of advancing our understanding of complex environmental systems, such as Sea Level, Ocean Acidification, Atmospheric Chemistry with respect to climate change, Environmental Toxicology, and Global Biodiversity Informatics with respect to the biodiversity crisis, all of which compliments the school’s mission.
Scholars hired in the School of Earth & Environment will have superior communication skills and will have demonstrated a deep commitment to sharing their science with the public. As part of teaching and outreach, faculty are encouraged to develop local research/teaching experiences in the nearby Edelman Fossil Park and affiliated Scotland Run Park. We are seeking agents of change, and a willingness to work with governments, NGOs, and industry to solve real-world problems is desired.
The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. by September 1, 2019 and have demonstrated early success at research and publication. Postdoctoral experience is a plus. A commitment to excellence in teaching and to communicating science to the public is a necessity.
