Faculty Position in Geology
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota Duluth anticipates hiring a one-year visiting faculty appointment to begin August of 2015. We seek a broadly-based earth scientist for a one-year sabbatical replacement position. The successful candidate will teach four courses in geology or environmental sciences that help fill our curricular needs, including geomorphology and/or structural geology. We will consider either a full-year appointment or two single-semester appointments. Appointment at the Visiting Assistant Professor level is preferred and requires the completion of a PhD, however, applicants with appropriate qualifications who are still ABD will be considered.
Essential qualifications for the position are: 1) completion of a Ph.D. or ABD status in earth science or related field by August 24, 2015, from a regionally-accredited university or equivalent program; 2) experience in teaching, which may include teaching assistantships.
Duluth is a vibrant small city with exceptional outdoor, recreational and cultural opportunities. We offer BA and BS degrees in geological and environmental science, the MS degree in geology, and the PhD degree in earth sciences in cooperation with the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus. Detailed information about our undergraduate and graduate programs is available http://ift.tt/1vZBKvE.
The University of Minnesota is an equal-opportunity educator and employer, and we encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to apply.
Pending a formal job posting by the University, review of applications is expected to begin on March 31, and will continue until the position is filled. We anticipate that the position will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
