The Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Appalachian
State University, Boone, North Carolina, invites applications for a
tenure-track nine-month faculty position at the rank of assistant professor
beginning no later than 01 January 2019. The requirements for the position are
a Ph.D. in geology, environmental science, or a related field. Candidates who
are ABD will be considered, but the position requires completion of all
doctoral requirements by the starting date. We seek a geoscientist with a
specialty in earth surface processes to support the teaching of courses in
engineering geology, quantitative analysis of earth and environmental processes
and a discipline-specific writing course that is required for environmental
science majors. The preferred candidate will have field
and teaching experience in engineering geology, earth-surface processes and
quantitative data analysis. The successful candidate will be expected to take
advantage of the regional geology in teaching. Additional teaching
responsibilities may include an introductory course such as physical geology or
environmental geology, with other courses possible based on applicant’s
specialty and student demand. The service component will involve helping with
academic advising of students in the environmental science program as well as
other departmental, university, and professional service tasks.

We
seek a quantitative geoscientist with research expertise in the broad area of
earth surface processes. Potential areas of research expertise include (but are
not limited to): quantitative analysis of earth and environmental processes,
glaciology, surface-water hydrology, and engineering geology. The successful candidate should complement the
present group of earth and environmental scientists. The candidate should have
a PhD at the time of appointment and must possess a strong commitment to both
undergraduate education and field-based research.

Applications
must include (in a single pdf file) a letter of interest, curriculum vitae,
statements of teaching and research interests, copies of transcripts of all
college and university work (official copies due upon employment), and the
names and contact information (including e-mail) of three referees familiar
with the applicant’s teaching and scholarship. Send applications to Dr. Cynthia
Liutkus-Pierce, liutkuscm@appstate.edu. Review of completed applications will begin August 20,
2018 and will continue until the position is filled.  Applicants will be notified via email upon
receipt of complete applications.
