The Department of Physics and Department of Environmental Studies at St. Olaf College invite applications for jointly-appointed tenure track position in Earth Science at the assistant professor level, to begin on Aug. 15, 2017. Responsibilities will involve teaching core courses at all levels in Physics and Environmental Studies. This will include Global Climate Change and an introduction to earth science course. The successful candidate will demonstrate potential for developing a research program in the earth sciences amenable to participation by undergraduate students and demonstrating potential for external funding. We are particularly interested in applicants who will contribute to the departments' commitment to increasing access and opportunities for populations which are currently under-represented in areas such as Physics, Earth Science, and Environmental Studies. Start-up funds are available. Post-doctoral experience and/or prior teaching experience is desirable, and a PhD in an Earth Science field by Sept. 1, 2017 is required. Evaluation of completed applications will begin on January 20, 2017.
