Printable version: Postdoctoral Scholar in Earth and Environmental Sciences

Description: The Department of Earth Sciences seeks a postdoctoral scholar hire in the field of Earth and Environmental Sciences. We will consider applicants from a broad range of disciplines in the geosciences (e.g., biogeochemistry, remote sensing, geochemistry, earth system modeling, surficial geology, hydrogeology, oceanography, etc.), but are particularly interested in candidates that will actively engage in scholarship that is synergistic with Arctic and Polar research initiatives led by a growing cohort of scientists at UNH. For integration into our teaching mission, as is supported by the PDIS program, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching foundational courses in the Earth Sciences including contributions to our introductory Discovery courses, field-based core courses such as ESCI 530 – Geological Field Methods; and ESCI 534 – Techniques in Environmental Sciences; or more advanced courses such as Biogeosciences in the Earth System, Fate and Transport in the Environment and Biogeochemistry. This hire will also be expected to support our growing B.S. Environmental Science-Geosystems degree program.

 We intend to work collaboratively with our colleagues who hold leadership roles in UNH Arctic and Polar research initiatives within the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space, School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, and the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment to recruit broadly for this position.
