The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Texas Arlington invites applications for a full time non-tenure track lecturer in broadly construed areas related to geospatial data science. We seek a broadly-trained scientist who complements the interdisciplinary nature of our geology and environmental science programs. While candidates from all sub-disciplines of earth and environmental sciences are encouraged to apply, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise to teach courses in GIS, remote sensing, and data science in the area of meteorology, oceanography, land surface processes, climate change, geophysics or geology. Opportunities for collaboration exist with departmental research groups in geochemistry, petrology, sedimentary geology, environmental health and toxicology, climate change and paleoclimatology, paleontology, hydrogeology, and other research groups of data science, analytical chemistry, ecology, and genomics in the College of Science, the College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs, and the College of Engineering. Our analytical strengths include the on-campus Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies (http://www.uta.edu/sirt/), particularly the Shimadzu Center for Environmental, Forensics, and Material Science, an ultraclean laboratory, and a gas isotope ratio mass spectrometer housed within the Earth and Environmental Science and the novel Science & Engineering Innovation & Research buildings.
The ideal candidate will have the capability to formulate research in area(s) of earth and environmental sciences, and an interest in collaborating with scientists who work within a scientific domain on data-intensive problems, such as climate change, geospatial modeling, bioinformatics, remote sensing, sustainability, and exposure modeling. Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equity in education through their scholarship, teaching, and/or service.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree in earth and environmental sciences or a related field.

To support this vision, our strategic plan focuses on four over-arching themes across the University: Health and the Human Condition, Sustainable Urban Communities, Global Environmental Impact, ...Data Driven Discovery and Knowledge Management. The College of Engineering is playing a critical role in the advancement of each of these themes. Our highly ranked academic programs attract the best and brightest scholars from around the world, and our faculty and students consistently receive national and international recognition for their accomplishments.
