- Jan 8, 2019

Tufts University invites applications for a full-time lecturer in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences to begin September 1st 2019. This position is for a 1-year initial contract with possibility of continued renewal of multiyear contracts, and it is included in the union for full-time lecturers (Service Employees International Union). The lecturer will teach courses in Paleontology, Historical Geology, their specialty (with a preference for Geographic Information Systems), and labs for other introductory courses that include afternoon field trips. Earth and Ocean Sciences is an undergraduate-only program offering degrees in Environmental Geology and Geological Sciences. The Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences is well-equipped for undergraduate study in Paleontology with an extensive fossil collection, binocular and petrographic microscopes, and laboratory teaching space. Tufts University is located in the Boston metro area and is near a diverse array of sedimentary rock terranes conducive to field trips in New England and eastern New York.


Preferred qualifications include a Ph.D. and experience of teaching at the college level in Geology. Potential applicants with specialties that effectively integrate Paleontology with Geochemistry, quantitative methods, or Computer Science are encouraged to apply. Although this is not a research position, opportunities to supervise research with undergraduates will be available through senior theses and research projects for course credit.
