Faculty Position in Hydrogeology at the University of Georgia
Position open until filled.
The Department of Geology at the University of Georgia seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the general field of Hydrogeology starting August 2018. Applications from scientists with backgrounds in quantitative geochemical and/or geophysical methods who incorporate unconventional and interdisciplinary approaches that complement and expand upon existing strengths in the Department are particularly encouraged. Expected areas of research and teaching interest include, but are not limited to, critical zone science, assessing water fluxes, surface and groundwater interactions, mineral weathering impacts on groundwater quality, determining aqueous geochemical mass balances, coastal aquifer dynamics, assessment of recharge and sustainable yields in complex hydrologic systems, simulation of flow and reaction transport processes, and contaminant fate and transport and source identification.
The applicant must have a strong record of research and a Ph.D. in Geology or related discipline by the time of appointment. The successful candidate will be expected to teach introductory geology courses, and undergraduate and graduate courses in their research specialty, supervise student research projects at the masters and doctoral levels, and establish a vigorous externally-funded research program. The successful candidate will have opportunities to interact with the University-wide Water Resources Faculty that includes representatives from Forestry & Natural Resources, Crop and Soil Science, Ecology, Marine Science, Geology, Geography, and Engineering.
