Job Opportunity: Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Planetary Science at Brown University

The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Planetary Science. Ideal candidates are those working on fundamental processes applicable across multiple solar system bodies and who would broaden and enhance existing departmental strengths in climate and environmental science, geochemistry, geophysics, planetary materials, or remote sensing. We encourage candidates from all fields of planetary science to apply.

The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active, externally-funded research program, enjoy a commitment to teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and contribute to the academic community of the department and university, including efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Women, members of historically underrepresented groups, and individuals with disabilities are particularly encouraged to apply. An appointment is expected at the Assistant Professor level, although exceptional circumstances could warrant an appointment at a higher level. The position will remain open until filled, but the review of applications will begin October 1, 2021, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2022.
