The Environmental Studies Program at Binghamton University, State University of New York invites applications for a tenure-track position at the level of assistant professor beginning in Fall 2022.
We seek an environmental chemist with expertise in water quality challenges and the risk assessment of exposure to contaminants in drinking water and wastewater treatment systems - as well as remediation strategies for polluted wastewater in community settings. Our preferred candidate will have strong statistical skills and significant experience with federal surface and drinking water regulations in the United States. Our new colleague will study the physical science of effluent, be well-versed in the social and policy underpinning of the topic, and be able to convey an interdisciplinary understanding to students. Such a melding of human and natural systems is at the crux of the Environmental Studies Program and a recruitment focus for faculty members. We seek applicants who prioritize engaged and collaborative research preferably with experience conducting community-based research.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in environmental chemistry or environmental engineering; be an established journal author; aggressive grant writer; and have a history of making connections to community-based and local government organizations.
