December 1, 2009

The Department of Geological Sciences at Case Western Reserve University seeks exceptional individuals for up to two tenure-track faculty growth positions in the fields of Planetary Science and in Environmental Science. It is anticipated that the positions will be filled at the Assistant Professor level, though senior candidates are encouraged to apply. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should demonstrate promise for research and teaching excellence; Associate Professor candidates should have established a significant professional reputation; candidates for Professor should be internationally recognized for leadership and scholarship in their discipline. All positions require completion of Ph.D. degree by July 2010 and a competitive record of publication commensurate with professional level. We seek candidates who complement existing expertise within the department, University, and nearby institutions. Successful candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses and to conduct a vigorous, externally-funded research program that involves post-doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students. The normal teaching load in the Department is 1 course per semester. A successful candidate for the Environmental Science position will be expected to play a key role in new University initiatives in Sustainability and in Energy and the Environment, including the development of a new environmental studies major. Although applications will be considered at any time, for guaranteed review, applications should be received by January 1, 2010. Applicants should send a CV, a letter that describes research interests and teaching experience, pdf files of no more than three publications, and contact information for three references to Nonelectronic submissions may be mailed to the Department of Geological Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, 10900 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44106-7216 USA.

    For anyone considering this, I’m a recent alum of the undergrad program in that department, and when I read this, I couldn’t help but comment. It’s a great little department, with a lot of interesting work going on in planetary science, and really friendly people. One of the resident strat/sed people, Dr. Saylor, leads the university’s women-in-science group, which is a fantastic community. It’d definitely be worth looking into.

    By the way, I should have noted that I got this out of the AWG (Association for Women Geoscientists) newsletter 🙂

    I love seeing postings from the community with two or more openings at the same time.

    Dual careers, anyone?

    (Also? The ADVANCE grants? Completely awesome. I don’t know what Case did specifically as part of its grant, but it’s an excellent program.)
