Faculty Positions in Environmental Science and Engineering at the Harvard University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for positions at the tenure-track or tenured level in the field of Environmental Science and Engineering.
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University is embarking on a broad initiative within the area of Environmental Science and Engineering. Our goal is to expand and strengthen undergraduate and graduate education and research on problems that affect the environment, on scales from local to global and spanning basic and applied sciences and engineering. Highlighted topics include but are not limited to: environmental and energy science, technology, air and water quality, hydrology, natural hazard mitigation, atmospheric science, oceanography, glaciology, and climate science. A key aspect of our strategy in the development of teaching and research initiatives at Harvard has been the close relationship between SEAS and the other science departments at the University such as physics, chemistry and chemical biology, earth and planetary sciences, organismic and evolutionary biology, etc.
Candidates are required to have a doctorate or equivalent terminal degree by their start date. In addition, we are seeking candidates of exceptional scientific and/or engineering talent who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and experimental, observational, theoretical, or computational research in one or more of these areas and who would be eager to participate in an expanding ESE undergraduate curriculum.
Required application documents include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of up to three representative papers, a research statement, a teaching statement, and names and contact information for at least three references. We encourage applicants to apply by December 15, 2013, but applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
