Teaching responsibilities include undergraduate courses in sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, and graduate courses in the candidate’s area of expertise. Applicants with a strong field component to their research and teaching will be favorably regarded. A PhD in earth science is required at the time of appointment.
The Department programs include undergraduate degrees in environmental science, environmental studies, geology, geophysics, and meteorology. Masters and PhD degrees are granted in geoscience (with concentrations in geology, geophysics, and environmental geoscience) as well as in meteorology.
