Faculty Openings

The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University invites applications and nominations for tenure-track faculty positions for 2014. These are at all levels (Full/Associate/Assistant Professor) in the areas of Ecohydrology and Stable Isotope Geochemistry. Mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students and securing external funding are expected. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant science or engineering discipline, and will be expected to teach courses for majors in Geology and Environmental Science. We are seeking individuals who will complement and expand departmental strengths in geochemistry, hydrology, mineralogy, structural geology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy.

Application materials should include a CV, statement of teaching goals, a research plan, names and addresses of at least three references, selected reprints, all submitted on-line. Also send a letter of intent and any inquiries to the search committee chair (see below). Application materials be submitted by September 16, 2013.

Temple University is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action employer committed to achieving a diverse community (AA, EOE, M/F/D/V). The department specifically encourages applications from women and minorities.


Possible areas of expertise include coupled hydrological and ecological processes involving water, energy, carbon, sediment, and nutrient fluxes, as well as the ecological impacts of contamination. Candidates with expertise in urban stormwater management, watersheds, or wetlands are of particular interest. The successful candidate is expected to use a combination of field-based data collection and modeling approaches to quantify ecohydrologic impacts of human development. Laura Toran, Chair, Search Committee, ltoran@temple.edu.

Stable Isotope Geochemistry

Possible areas of expertise include the use of stable isotopes to address issues related to climate change, nutrient cycling and ecological tracers, petroleum or ore deposits, and atmospheric/groundwater contaminants. The successful candidate is expected to establish a stable isotope laboratory and develop a multidisciplinary research program. David Grandstaff, Chair, Search Committee, grand@temple.edu.
