Tenure-track Assistant Professor, Environmental Systems Modeler

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Boston College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor with an expertise in quantitative/computational modeling of integrated earth systems: a geodynamic and/or hydrologic modeler who explores the physical, chemical, and/or biological interrelationships among diverse environmental and earth systems at the regional to global scale. The candidate should have broad research interests compatible with those of the current faculty in our Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and potentially with faculty in the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science and/or Mathematics departments. Areas of research expertise could include (but are not limited to): modeling of the interactions of ice-sheet dynamics, sea-level rise and climate change; modeling the exchange of water, carbon, energy, or pollutants between the terrestrial hydrosphere, cryosphere, ocean, atmosphere, and lithosphere; and modeling crustal deformation and mantle flow as it influences surface topography and climate. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous externally funded research program integrated with excellence in teaching within the Earth and Environmental Science curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, statements of teaching and research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references to Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2016. Inquiries may be directed to Prof. Noah Snyder, Search Committee Chair (
