Three faculty searches in ges
The Department of Geography and Earth Sciences has three job searches underway!
- Assistant or Associate Professor of Geospatial Health Analysis
- Assistant Professor of Earth Materials
- Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Sciences
Applications for each search are being accepted in the Fall semester, we expect to interview candidates in the Spring semester, and we hope to have three new faculty joining our Department in Fall 2024. See below for some details about each postion and who to contact for more information. Visit the links above for even more details.
Assistant or Associate Professor of Geospatial Health Analysis
We invite applications for a tenured or tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor specializing in Geospatial Health Analysis to begin on August 15, 2024. The Department is seeking a dynamic and broadly trained geospatial health scientist whose expertise focuses on health disparities, challenges and/or solutions from a geographic perspective. Requirements for this position include a Ph.D. degree in Geography, Geographic Information Science, Urban Planning, a health-related field, or another discipline related to geospatial health analysis, awarded by the date of appointment. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate their ability (1) to contribute to the department’s undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. focus areas in geography, urban and regional analysis, human-environment interactions, and geographic information science and/or geospatial health; (2) to build a cutting-edge, externally funded research program in geospatial health analysis; (3) to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration; and (4) to effectively teach undergraduate and graduate courses in geography, geographic information science, and/or their area of specialization. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged to demonstrate how their academic and/or professional experience have prepared them for sustainable success in the above four areas. Applicants at the Associate Professor level should demonstrate a record of sustained excellence in the above four areas. Candidates should submit the following to https://jobs.charlotte.edu/postings/52720 [Position Number 006905]: (1) cover letter; (2) research statement; (3) teaching statement; (4) a curriculum vitae; (5) one to three representative publications, and (6) contact information (including email addresses) for at least three professional references. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information, contact search committee chair Dr. Colleen Hammelman, (email@example.com).
Assistant Professor of Earth Materials
We invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Earth Materials for an August 2024 appointment. The Department seeks a dynamic and broadly trained Earth scientist who employs field, laboratory and/or modeling techniques for the study of Earth materials (e.g., minerals, sediments, and/or resources). Required Qualifications: (1) a Ph.D. degree in Geology, Geosciences, Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences or a related field, in hand by the time of appointment; (2) evidence of scholarly productivity; (3) ability to secure appropriate external funding; and (4) potential for engaging students in a diverse academic environment. Finalists will be asked to discuss how they will engage, and help improve the success of students of different ages, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, identities, and abilities. Desired Qualifications: (1) potential for interdisciplinary collaboration in their research and teaching as it relates to Earth surface geosciences, especially in the “Critical Zone”: defined as the region where Earth’s atmosphere, biosphere, lithosphere and hydrosphere interact. 2) ability to relate their research to broader questions addressing, for example, critical zone evolution, climate change, human-environment interaction, health and hazards, energy transitions, and/or sustainability. (3) ability to build a successful, cutting-edge research program and develop coursework in their area of expertise that will contribute to the department’s undergraduate and graduate curricula. Candidates should submit the following to https://jobs.charlotte.edu/postings/52723 (Position Number 006922): 1) a cover letter; (2) a research statement; (3) a teaching statement; (4) a curriculum vitae; and (5) contact information (including email addresses) for at least three professional references.Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information contact search committee co-chairs Dr. Patricia Fall (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Martha Cary (Missy) Eppes (email@example.com).
Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Sciences
We invite applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor specializing in atmospheric remote sensing to begin on August 15, 2024. The Department is seeking expertise that leverages remote sensing to address questions related to topics such as precipitation, cloud cover, aerosols, air pollution, or radiative transfer, and their interactions with Earth’s climate and weather systems. Candidates are required to have earned a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, or a closely related discipline at the time of appointment. Preferred candidates will be those who: (1) Provide evidence of scholarly productivity or potential, describe plans to develop a sustainable externally-funded (e.g. NASA, NOAA, NSF) research program, and describe how their research will incorporate both graduate and undergraduate students; and (2) Demonstrate the ability and desire to contribute to the Department’s interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate teaching. Contributions include developing new graduate and/or undergraduate courses in Meteorology and/or Earth Sciences, as well as supporting existing undergraduate courses in either of those subjects. Candidates should submit the following to https://jobs.charlotte.edu/postings/52687 [Position Number 006903]: (1) a cover letter; (2) a statement of research and teaching; (3) a curriculum vitae; and (4) contact information (including email addresses) for at least three professional references. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.
