Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Geohazards

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Texas Arlington invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in broadly construed areas related to geohazards or environmental health at the level of Assistant Professor. Faculty candidates for higher ranks with exceptional track records will also be considered. We seek a broadly-trained geoscientist or environmental scientist who complements the interdisciplinary nature of our earth and environmental science program. While candidates from all sub-disciplines of earth and environmental sciences are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in one of the following areas: geohazards, processes leading to earthquakes, rock strength change, landform response to disturbances, climate change and its impact, data analytics, dynamical or statistical modeling, the exposome, biomarkers, and metabolics. Opportunities for collaboration exist with departmental research groups in geochemistry, petrology, sedimentary geology, environmental health and toxicology, climate change and paleoclimatology, paleontology, hydrogeology, and other research groups of data science, analytical chemistry, ecology, and genomics in the College of Science, the College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs, and the College of Engineering. Our analytical strengths include the on-campus Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies (http://www.uta.edu/sirt/), particularly the Shimadzu Center for Environmental, Forensics, and Material Science, an ultraclean laboratory, and a gas isotope ratio mass spectrometer housed within the Earth and Environmental Science and the novel Science & Engineering Innovation & Research buildings.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in earth and environmental sciences or a related field.  Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equity in education through their scholarship, teaching, and/or service.
