The School of the Environment at Washington State University (WSU) invites applications for a nine-month, full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professorship in Environmental Chemistry, based at WSU's Vancouver campus. We especially encourage applications from scientists whose research addresses the chemical (especially biogeochemical or geochemical) dynamics and effects of environmental contaminants in an ecosystem context, and from those who examine nutrient or carbon cycling from a chemical perspective.
Requirements: 1) Ph.D. in an environmental chemistry-related discipline or an established record of publication and funded research in an environmental chemistry-related discipline by employment start-date, 2) demonstrated ability (or strong potential) to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses, 3) a successful, externally-funded research program or strong potential to develop same, 4) a strong publication record relative to career stage, 5) ability to contribute to WSU's diversity goals in research, teaching and/or service, and potential to contribute to research and graduate training in Watershed Science or Earth System Science.  Preferred candidates will also have: 1) demonstrated ability to conduct research or instruction in an interdisciplinary setting, and 2) demonstrated ability to mentor diverse students.
Duties: Establish and maintain a high-profile, externally-funded research program, contribute to successful and growing research and graduate training programs in Watershed Science or Earth System Science, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, collaborate with interdisciplinary research teams across campus and system-wide, and provide academic service. 
Application: Upload electronic copies of the following to position 76789 at 1) a cover letter discussing training and experience as related to each of the 6 required and 2 preferred qualifications outlined in the full Notice of Vacancy (available at, 2) your curriculum vitae, 3) a statement of research interests and accomplishments, 4) a statement of teaching philosophy and interests, which must include a statement of ability or potential to contribute to WSU's diversity goals, 5) copies of two publications, and 6) three letters of reference.  Review of applications will begin November 7, 2014.  Inquiries about the search should be sent via email to Dr. John Harrison, search committee chair ([log in to unmask] ) and include the subject heading "Environmental Chemistry Search." WSU is an EEO/AA educator and employer.
