The Department of Earth Sciences at The College of Wooster invites applications for a one-year visiting position at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning in August 2022. We are looking for a broadly trained Earth Scientist. Scholars with expertise (Ph.D.) in environmental geoscience or related fields are encouraged to apply (e.g. hydrology/hydrogeology, climate science, glaciology, oceanography, ocean-atmospheric-cryosphere interactions, physical geography, etc.). Expertise in GIS and experience working with diverse populations of students would also be especially desirable.
We are especially interested in hiring faculty who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their teaching, research, and service. The College of Wooster enrolls a diverse student body (24% domestic students of color and 17% international students); all applicants are expected to discuss their experience working with diverse student populations.
The successful candidate will teach introductory and advanced courses for both majors and non-majors in their specialty and will mentor students in our strong undergraduate research Independent Study program. We value candidates who can contribute to interdisciplinary programs connected with the Earth Sciences, such as Environmental Studies, Archaeology, and Statistical & Data Sciences. The Department also is highly engaged in the College's STEM Success Initiative and collaborates regularly with MiSTEM (minorities in STEM), so we welcome candidates who could contribute to these programs. Applicants may be interested in involvement in the Department's GeoPATHS project to engage early-career students.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, copies of unofficial graduate transcripts, diversity statement, teaching philosophy statement, research statement, and three reference letters through Interfolio.
