Binghamton University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in the area of Geohydrology at the assistant professor level to begin in Fall 2020. We are seeking an earth scientist who studies physical, chemical or biological processes involving surface water or groundwater by using a combination of field measurements, observations, and modeling. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research area includes investigation of water-related near-surface geophysical processes, though individuals with other research areas in the broad field of geohydrology are also encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to candidates who demonstrate a commitment to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teaching and scholarship.
In particular, we seek candidates who will strengthen our existing research and teaching programs in Geological Sciences (https://www.binghamton.edu/geology/), Environmental Studies (https://www.binghamton.edu/environmental-studies/), Sustainable Communities (https://www.binghamton.edu/Sustainable-Communities/) and the Center for Integrated Watershed Studies (https://www.binghamton.edu/centers/ciws/). The position will be part of a new interdisciplinary initiative that brings together faculty from geology, environmental science, ecology, and sustainability sciences to study the earth and the challenges facing the planet. This position is also affiliated with the Sustainable Communities Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence (TAE), one of six TAEs that Binghamton University has developed as areas of focused interdisciplinary research across the university (https://www.binghamton.edu/transdisciplinary-areas-of-excellence/sustainable-communities/).
To apply, please submit a curriculum vita; a cover letter describing experience and interest in the position; statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information of at least three references. All documents should be submitted to: https://binghamton.interviewexchange.com. Completed applications received by December 15,, 2019 will receive full consideration. Applications arriving after this date will be reviewed as needed until the position is filled.
