Lehigh University: Tenure Track Assistant Professor

Tenure Track Assistant Professor

Lehigh University invites applications for a tenure track position in earth and environmental sciences at the assistant professor level. We seek individuals who will establish an internationally recognized externally funded research program. We are especially interested in candidates working across disciplinary boundaries or in emerging areas of earth and environmental sciences whose expertise contributes to department strengths. Lehigh University and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences have a strong commitment to the inclusion and engagement of our growing population of diverse students. We particularly seek candidates who will successfully serve as mentors and role models for students belonging to groups that are traditionally underrepresented in earth and environmental sciences. Successful candidates will have a PhD, research expertise that contributes to department strengths, a commitment to teaching undergraduate and graduate students, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The department expects several faculty positions to become available in the next 5 years.

Applications should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, names and contact information of three references, statements of research and teaching interests, and a description of experience and vision for enhancing participation of traditionally underrepresented groups to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5945. To ensure full consideration the application should be received by November 1, 2015.
