qualifications include a
Ph.D. in an appropriate field by the time of the start
date and a strong research record in environmental science.

 

The position will be split between
the Environmental Studies Program
(0.6 of the FTE), which
will be the tenure home, and an appropriate academic department (0.4 of
the FTE) with potential ones including, but not limited to, Biology, Geography, and Geological Sciences.  Duties
will include:

1) developing an academically oriented,
externally funded research program; 2) teaching
undergraduate interdisciplinary courses
in the Environmental Studies Program
and advanced courses in areas of specialization, 3) supervising masters and doctoral
students, and 4) performing service primarily within
the Environmental Studies Program.

 

Candidates should submit a letter of application, statements
of research interests and teaching
philosophy, a sample research paper, a current vita, and names of at
