Job description

Emporia State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Earth Science to begin in August, 2018. We are seeking a broadly trained geoscientist with expertise in remote sensing and GIS. The candidate’s specific geoscience research discipline is flexible, but the candidate is expected to teach courses and supervise student research using geospatial techniques that complement existing strengths (e.g., geology, hydrogeology, geoarchaeology, paleontology, and physical geography). The successful candidate will be expected to teach on-line/hybrid and on-campus courses in our undergraduate Earth Science, Geospatial Analysis, and graduate programs. Research mentoring at the undergraduate and master’s level is expected. A Ph.D. is required prior to the start of the position.

About the University:
Emporia State University is one of seven four-year institutions in the State of Kansas’ Board of Regents system, and has an enrollment of approximately 6,000. As Kansas’ premier teaching university, our focus is student-centered. The Johnston Geology Museum, the Peterson Planetarium, our proximity to the Flint Hills, eight managed Natural Areas, and on-campus field stations provide unique opportunities for high-impact, hands-on learning. With small-town charm and a low cost of living, Emporia is a great place to live. The City of Emporia is host to an active fine arts community, nationally acclaimed mountain biking and disc golf competitions, and internationally awarded “best tasting” drinking water.
