The School of Earth & Environment at Rowan University is seeking an Assistant Professor for the Department of Geology. We seek outstanding candidates who hold a Ph.D. (by Sept 1, 2017) in Geology/Geoscience, or a closely related discipline. The successful candidate will have demonstrated early success at research and publication. Postdoctoral experience is desirable. We seek candidates who have a global focus -- established international collaborations are a plus. The areas of expertise are open, however, preference will be given to applicants engaged in the following research: near-term and/or long-term paleoclimate studies (biotic or abiotic), sea level science and coastal sustainability, geohazards, polar research, Earth systems processes, and planetary science in general, however, the science of impacts or the dynamical evolution of airless planetary bodies would be of particular interest. Scholars hired in the School of Earth & Environment will have superior communication skills and will have demonstrated a deep commitment to sharing their science with the public.
The Rowan Fossil Park (www.rowan.edu/fossils), located only 4 miles from campus, is closely associated with the School of Earth & Environment and provides unique research opportunities and teaching resources to faculty members and students.
