Position Summary

The Environmental Science Program invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in Environmental Science to begin in the fall term of 2018. The preferred candidate has a strong interest to combine teaching in the liberal arts environment with a dynamic research project that includes active participation from undergraduates. The Environmental Science program enjoys support from faculty in biology, chemistry and physics. These departments and the program have excellent modern research instrumentation. A list of available instrumentation can be found here. This site also contains additional information about the position and the Environmental Science Program. The successful candidate will teach two courses per year: an introductory course in environmental science and an upper-level course in the candidate’s area of expertise. The position also allows for participation in existing on-campus research or the development of new research projects according to the candidate’s own interests. Research with undergraduate student participation is expected. Research space and limited funds for on-campus research will be provided.


At the time of appointment, the candidate should have a Ph.D. in an environmental field, such as biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, hydrology, oceanography, or physics, with a research specialty in some area of environmental science. Prospective candidates can either strengthen or complement our current research projects (see website for details).
