Earth Surface Processes—Dartmouth College
The Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College invites applications for a junior rank tenure-track position in the general area of Earth Surface Processes. We especially welcome applications from candidates with research interests in the generation,
transport and deposition of sediments and related contaminants in hill slope and stream channel environments, potentially with additional research interests in the biological mediation of physical processes and forms in fluvial environments. Particular attention
will be given to candidates who combine a focus on understanding fundamental processes with state-of-the-art laboratory and/or field research programs that complement and contribute to ongoing research activities in the Department as well as in Dartmouth’s
Department of Geography, Thayer School of Engineering, and the Department of Biological Sciences. The successful candidate will continue Dartmouth’s strong traditions in graduate and undergraduate research and teaching. Teaching responsibilities consist of
three courses spread over three of four ten-week terms.
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 and 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.
Dartmouth College, a member of the Ivy League, is located in Hanover, New Hampshire (on the Vermont border). Dartmouth has a beautiful, historic campus located in a scenic area on the Connecticut River. Recreational opportunities abound all year round.
