Tenure-Track Professor in Earth History
Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Earth and Planetary Sciences
The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences (EPS) invites applications for an open faculty position spanning the broadly defined fields of Geology, Geobiology and/or Geochemistry as they pertain to reconstructing and understanding the history of the Earth. This is a tenure-track appointment at the assistant level. We seek to attract an outstanding individual to establish an innovative research program and teach both undergraduate and graduate students. We are especially interested in individuals whose work spans the intellectual interests of Harvard faculty, including – although not limited to – the interactions between life, evolution, (bio)geochemistry, tectonics, and marine or terrestrial environmental change over geologic time. There is also the opportunity to work with sister departments such as Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
A doctorate or terminal degree in the broad area of earth history is required by the expected start date.
We also seek candidates who have a commitment to teaching.
We value diversity in our faculty and are committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.
Please submit applications online at: http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8387 Required materials include a cover letter, curriculum vita; a statement of research and teaching interests; four representative publications; and the names, institutional affiliations, and e-mail addresses of three references. Review of applications will begin November 1, 2018, and conclude when the position is filled.
