Tenure Track Position: Mineralogy/Material Science
The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University seeks applicants for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor in mineralogy and material science whose research emphasizes the emerging fields of Environmental Mineralogy, Medical Mineralogy, or Nanoscience to begin in August 2013.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. degree, an established record of accomplishment in their discipline, a strong commitment to teaching and student mentoring, and a keen interest in collaboration with other faculty at Temple University to build a new Geoscience Ph.D. program. The candidate is expected to complement existing specialties in our department, including low-temperature aqueous geochemistry, hydrology, environmental geophysics, structural geology, mineralogy, coastal geomorphology, soils, sedimentology/stratigraphy, and paleoclimatology.
Available analytical instrumentation includes: X-ray fluorescence, magnetic susceptibility, electron microprobe, liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry, Raman spectroscopy, automated powder, single crystal, and thin film XRD, SEM and TEM with EDS, as well as access to high-performance computing.
The deadline for applications is January 7, 2013. Applications should include a CV, statement of research goals, description of potential classes and teaching philosophy, names and addresses of at least three references (five if applying at the Associate level), and copies of selected reprints. Applications should be submitted electronically via the link on the Department website: http://www.temple.edu/geology and letter of intent emailed to Jonathan Nyquist, Department chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Temple University is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer committed to equal access and to achieving a diverse community.
