Tenure-track faculty position at U. Texas, Arlington

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) at the
University of Texas at Arlington anticipates additional expansion of its
tenure-track faculty with a new faculty appointment beginning as soon as
August 2012. The position is offered at the assistant professor level,
although especially strong candidates may be considered for appointment
at higher rank. EES is simultaneously seeking a senior scholar to be
department chair and interested parties are referred to our companion
announcement.

UT Arlington, situated on a cloistered, urban campus in the Dallas-Ft.
Worth metroplex, is a vital and diverse academic community of over
33,000 students working together with faculty committed to outstanding
teaching, research and scholarship. The EES department is home to a
dynamic and interdisciplinary Ph.D. program as well as vibrant and
growing undergraduate and masters degree programs. Additional
information can be found at: <http://www.uta.edu/ees/>.

We seek a geoscientist whose research will build upon existing strengths
in EES. Areas of interest include: petrological and geochemical methods
applied to tectonics or magmatic systems, tectonic geomorphology,
characterization and modeling of modern or ancient sedimentary systems,
innovative approaches to climate change with emphasis on regional to
global climate system interactions, carbon sequestration, energy and the
environment, and integrated studies of the atmospheric, oceanic,
cryospheric and the solid Earth systems.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a creative and
externally funded research program, contribute to undergraduate and
graduate teaching as well as supervise graduate students. In addition,
the successful candidate will be expected to participate in an emerging
collaboration with UT Dallas to develop a vibrant geoscience center in
North Texas. A Ph.D. in Earth Sciences or a related field is required.
Post-doctoral experience, and a strong publication and funding record,
consistent with experience, are desired. Women and minorities are
strongly encouraged to apply.

Completed applications consist of: a curriculum vitae; statement of
research vision; statement of teaching interests and experience; names
and contact information of at least five persons who would be willing to
provide letters of recommendation.

Applications should be submitted by December 15, 2011, but applications
will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled. A criminal
background check will be conducted on finalists. We prefer applications
in Adobe PDF format submitted electronically to <ees@uta.edu>. Print
applications may be mailed to: Dr. Glen S. Mattioli, Chair, Search
Committee, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of
Texas at Arlington, 500 Yates St., Arlington, Texas76019
