The Department of Geosciences at Wellesley College invites applications for
a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor beginning
August 2012.  We seek an exceptional scientist, broadly trained in surface
processes, who can integrate inquiry-based approaches to teaching
undergraduates in classroom, field and laboratory settings, and maintain a
funded research program in a liberal arts environment.

 Geosciences faculty at Wellesley teach and develop courses at all levels of
curriculum and integrate undergraduates into their research programs. We
expect our candidates to have teaching experience (the design and
implementation of a lecture/lab course for undergraduates), experience
advising undergraduate research projects, and research experiences beyond
PhD training.

 A complete application package will include the following: 1) a curriculum
vita, 2) a statement of both research interests and approach to
incorporating undergraduate students in their research program, 3) one or
two publications that illustrate the range and depth of scholarly activity,
4) a statement of approach to teaching along with documentation of prior
success in the classroom and how their course offerings will complement our
existing curriculum, 5) academic transcripts, and 6) three letters of
recommendation. (The online application will request names/email address so
that recommenders or dossier services may submit the letters directly.). All
materials should be submitted through the online application system at
https://career.wellesley.edu. If circumstances make it impossible to submit
materials online, please email [log in to unmask]  Dan Brabander, Chair,
Geosciences Department will head this search. Applications will be accepted
until October 20, 2011.

 Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and
we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and
the curriculum.

Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to
apply.
