Assistant Professor of Environmental Science

Colorado College Environmental Program



Colorado College seeks an atmospheric scientist for a tenure-track position in 
our interdisciplinary Environmental Program, to begin fall 2015. We are seeking 
candidates with expertise in applied atmospheric physics (including meteorology 
and climatology) or atmospheric chemistry.



Teaching areas will include energetics and thermodynamics, atmospheric science, 
introduction to global climate change, and additional courses in areas of the 
new faculty member’s specialization. The new faculty member will be a key 
contributor to our Environmental Science major, but also contribute to the 
interdisciplinary Environmental Policy major. Colorado College is committed to 
increasing the diversity of the college community. Candidates who contribute to 
that goal, including women and minorities, are particularly encouraged to 
apply, and to identify relevant strengths or experiences.



Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a commitment to and potential 
for excellence in teaching and scholarly research. Applicants must be committed 
to high quality, innovative undergraduate teaching. Colorado College uses the 
Block Plan, an intensive teaching schedule in which professors teach and 
students take only one course at a time for 3.5 weeks. The Block Plan lends 
itself to field and project-based teaching, and support for field trips and 
community-based learning projects is available through the Environmental 
Program.



A PhD in a relevant field is required by the time of appointment. Applicants 
should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research 
statement, graduate and undergraduate transcripts, and three letters of 
recommendation electronically on the Colorado College Employment Career Site: 
https://employment.coloradocollege.edu/. Application materials should be 
received by December 18, 2014.  Phone interviews will take place in the first 
half of January 2015, with campus interviews to follow.



As an equal opportunity employer, Colorado College welcomes applications from 
members of all groups and reaffirms its commitment not to discriminate on the 
basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity, 
gender expression, disability, or sexual orientation in its educational 
programs and activities or employment practices.
