Environmental Science, Assistant Professor - Full Time, Tenure Track
The Environmental and Urban Studies Program at Bard College is seeking applicants for a full-time, tenure-track position in environmental science at the assistant professor level. The successful candidate will be a broadly trained scientist with an interest in interdisciplinary teaching and research. The candidate’s area of expertise is open and we invite applicants to articulate how their expertise would complement our existing strengths in the sciences and in environmental and urban studies. We particularly encourage applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: biogeochemistry, agroecology, soil science, urban ecology, green infrastructure, or ecotoxicology.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. and a strong commitment to undergraduate education. Teaching responsibilities will include introductory and intermediate courses in environmental science as well as advanced courses in the candidate's area of expertise. The core first-year course, Introduction to Environmental and Urban Science, is offered each semester and surveys such topics as: geological formation of hydrocarbon and mineral deposits; fundamentals of ecology and evolution; soil formation; and atmospheric composition and climate regulation.
An active research program, including supervision of undergraduate research, will be expected. Familiarity with liberal arts colleges, teaching experience, and postdoctoral experience are desirable.
