earth and environmental sciences
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Boston College seeks applications for a one-year visiting professor position for the 2013-14 academic year, with expertise in the broad field of igneous or metamorphic petrology. Candidates for this position should have completed their Ph.D. by the time of appointment but applicants nearing completion (ABD) will also be considered. The teaching load for the academic year will consist of the equivalent of four full-semester courses, including introductory geology (Exploring the Earth), Igneous & Metamorphic Petrology and two additional courses with at least one at an upper level in the applicant’s specialty. We expect the successful applicant to have a strong commitment to promoting excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and to complement existing research strengths in the department to offer new student research and learning opportunities. The department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is host to a range of analytical facilities to support research in the broad field of petrology including: a new scanning electron microscope facility equipped with EDS, EBSD, and CL imaging; a Laser Raman Micro-Spectroscopic Imaging Lab; and rock preparation and mineral separation facilities.
To apply, applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references in a single PDF-file email attachment to Prof. John Ebel. Review of applications will begin May 20 2013 and continue until the position is filled.
