The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in the College of Sceince at The University of Texas Arlington invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position with broadly construed areas of expertise in geology, meteorology, or environmental science at the level of Assistant Professor. Faculty candidates for higher ranks with exceptional track records will also be considered. While candidates from all sub-disciplines of geosciences or environmental science are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in the carbon-free energy transition, synoptic-to-global-scale climate change impact and resilience, environmental health, sustainability, and/or data science. Opportunities for collaboration exist within the  department in the areas of geochemistry, geochronology, sedimentary geology, environmental chemistry and toxicology, environmental health, climate change and paleoclimatology, paleontology, tracer hydrology, and with other research groups in the College of Science in the areas of data science or analytical chemistry. Our geochemical and analytical strengths include the Center for Environmental, Forensics, and Material Science and an ultraclean laboratory within the Earth and Environmental Science building, as well as other facilities at the UTA Science & Engineering Innovation & Research (SEIR) building.


Essential Duties and Responsibilities

Standard research expectations for faculty include publishing research in peer-reviewed journals, acquiring research grants, and advising undergraduate and graduate students and postdocs in research. Startup packages are provided to enable new faculty to jump-start their research group in advance of winning research grants.

Faculty are expected to continuously improve their teaching, and UTA offers Learning and Development Resources as well as opportunities with the STEM Education Research Collaboratorium and Resource Center. 

Service duties include departmental committee work (such as organizing colloquia, graduate student admissions, or faculty hiring), service to the university, service to the community, and national service to research and education infrastructure. Faculty often serve on national review panels, referee journal articles, and engage in public education and outreach.


Required Qualifications

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in geology, meteorology, environmental sciences or a related discipline.

We seek an individual with an established research and mentorship record who will develop new and expand existing collaborations among faculty, researchers, and students within the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, across the UTA campus, and around the globe. Candidates are encouraged to describe how their work will address topics of acute scientific interest and critical societal importance related to reliable sustainable energy, climate change impact and resilience, human health, and/or data science.

CBC Requirement

It is the policy of The University of Texas at Arlington to conduct a criminal background check on any applicant who is under final consideration for employment with the University.
