Boise State University, a public doctoral-granting research university, welcomes applications for a tenure-track appointment in the Department of Geosciences. We seek a colleague who can develop a laboratory and field-based geochemistry component in our Hydrologic Science program by teaching courses, mentoring graduate students, and developing a successful research program. Potential fields of expertise include low-temperature and/or stable isotope geochemistry, biogeochemical cycling, subsurface contaminant fate and transport, the hydrology and biogeochemistry of critical zone processes and systems, or any other field where the interaction of hydrologic, geologic, and biologic processes are investigated through a chemical perspective. As our colleague, you will join a department with strengths in analytical geochemistry, hydrologic science, geophysics, and computing.
Key strategic capabilities that our department maintains include: (1) laboratory instrumentation including electron beam (SEM, TEM, EMPA) and mass spectrometry (ICPMS, SIRMS, and TIMS) platforms for major and trace element and isotope ratio measurement, (2) multiple long-term field sites, (3) near-surface electrical and seismic geophysical instrumentation, and (4) high-performance computing systems. We value the integration of research and evidence-based teaching practices, and support training and mentorship of students from the undergraduate to doctoral level. This is a 9-month tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. Exceptional candidates with demonstrated productivity in research and teaching may apply to be considered for appointment at the level of Associate Professor.
About the department:
The Department of Geosciences at Boise State is comprised of 17 tenure and tenure-track faculty and maintains strategic thrust areas in surface processes, geology, and geophysics. Our research pursuits span the globe, while benefiting from collaborations with science and management agencies in the state and region. Boise State is a university consortium partner in the USGS Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center, the Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory, and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. We support a BS in Geosciences and research graduate programs delivering MS degrees in Hydrologic Science, Geoscience, and Geophysics, and PhDs in Geoscience and Geophysics. Campus-wide, interdisciplinary degrees in which Geoscience faculty advise students include PhD programs in Computational Science and Engineering and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior.
