Chair, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of
Texas at Arlington

The University of Texas at Arlington seeks an eminent scientist to lead
its expanding programs in the Department of Earth andEnvironmental
Sciences. A Ph.D. in geosciences is required, along with a proven record
of excellence in research, teaching, and service. The successful
candidate will have demonstrated academic leadership experience or show
potential to assume such a role as well as a clear vision for the
development of the EES department as part of a rapidly expanding,
research-oriented university. The position is offered at the rank of
full professor with tenure, with a start date as early as August 2012.
The EES department is simultaneously seeking an additional assistant
professor and interested parties should refer to our companion announcement.

The successful candidate is expected to maintain a creative,
independent, and externally funded research program, contribute to
formal undergraduate and graduate teaching, as necessary, engage in
long-term strategic planning, as well as mentor junior faculty. The new
chair will also play a leadership role in shaping future hiring,
curriculum development, broadening alumni-related initiatives, and will
be expected to participate in an emerging collaboration with UT Dallas
to develop a vibrant geoscience center in North Texas. While the
geoscience sub-discipline of the chair is open, we seek a geoscientist
whose research will build upon existing strengths in EES. Women and
minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

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 undergraduate and graduate students working together with faculty
committed to outstanding teaching, research and scholarship. The EES
Department is home to interdisciplinary MS and Ph.D. programs as well as
a vibrant and rapidly growing undergraduate program. Additional
information can be found at: <http://www.uta.edu/ees/>.

Completed application should consist of: curriculum vitae, statement of
research interests and goals, statement of teaching interests and
evidence of teaching quality, statement of leadership experience and
vision of the future of academic geosciences, and the names and contact
information of at least five references.

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. Inquiries about this
position may be directed to Dr. Alexander Weiss (email:
<weiss@,uta.edu>, phone: 817-272-2459), or Ms. Amy Osborn (email:
