The Department of Geosciences invites applications for an open rank tenure track faculty member with broad teaching and research interests in Solid Earth Geosciences. Our ideal future colleague will be engaged in teaching at all levels of the curriculum including our core classes Dynamic Earth and Earth Materials. Advanced courses are centered around petrology, structural geology and tectonics depending on the research program of the candidate. We are seeking a colleague with a strong background in field geology and a commitment to teaching in the field. The ideal candidate will be able to develop an externally funded research portfolio that provides rich research experiences for Wellesley undergraduates.

Wellesley is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years women who are committed to making a difference. Every year, some 2,400 of the world's top undergraduate women are challenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield, whether in their own communities or on the world stage is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience. Wellesley's lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty, often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the real world in its graduates, in terms... of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest.
