Assistant Professor - Hydrogeology and Geology


Location: Research Park/342 Computer Ct

The Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (EEES) at Clemson University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level commencing with the fall 2017 semester. The successful candidate will have earned a PhD in Geosciences, Geological Engineering, or a closely related discipline. The specific area of research specialization is open, but an individual is sought with outstanding potential and scholarly interests in cutting edge topics that will complement the existing strengths of the Hydrogeology and Geology programs within the EEES department. Examples of desired specialty areas include, but are not limited to, natural hazards, climate change, coastal geologic systems, remote sensing, geoinformatics, and engineering geology. Preference will be given to candidates who take a quantitative approach to research. The successful candidate is expected to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Current teaching needs at the undergraduate level include structural geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy, and surficial geology; the successful candidate will be expected to teach one or more of these undergraduate courses in the Geology degree program. Development of new courses at the undergraduate or graduate level will be encouraged. The candidate will be expected to advise MS and PhD students in the EEES Department, and to develop a high-quality, funded research program. Opportunities exist for collaboration within the uniquely interdisciplinary environment of the EEES department, as well as with colleagues in other departments at Clemson University. Information about the EEES department is available at http://www.clemson.edu/cecas/departments/eees/.
