The Environmental Science Program at Trinity College invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in Environmental Chemistry to begin in the fall term of 2011. The preferred candidate has a strong interest to combine teaching in the liberal arts environment with dynamic research that includes active participation from undergraduates. At the time of appointment, the candidate should have a Ph.D. in Chemistry or related field, such as Geochemistry or Environmental Chemistry, with a research specialty in some area of Environmental Chemistry.

The successful candidate will teach an introductory environmental chemistry course (with laboratory) in the spring semester and one additional course in environmental science during the fall. The position also allows for participation in existing on-campus research or the development of new research projects according to the candidate’s own interests. Research with undergraduate student participation is expected and limited funds for on-campus research will be provided.

Trinity’s Environmental Science Program is an initiative that exploits the College’s urban location and the broader Hartford environs. The Environmental Science program currently consists of two tenured faculty members, in conservation biology and geophysics respectively, and a laboratory instructor with expertise in geology. The program enjoys additional support from other faculty in biology, chemistry, and engineering. The Chemistry Department and Environmental Science Program have excellent modern research instrumentation including, 2 GC-MS and LC-MS, IC, HPLC, CD, FT-IR, ICP-AES, XRD, SEM/EDX and a 400 MHz NMR, soil and sediment sampling equipment as well as a variety of other instrumentation.

Trinity College is an AA/EO institution. Members of groups affected by affirmative action guidelines are strongly encouraged to apply. Consideration of applications will begin now and will continue until the position is filled. For additional information please contact Dr. Christoph Geiss (christoph.geiss@trincoll.edu). Please send your application, which should include research and teaching goals and a detailed CV, and have forwarded three letters of recommendation and graduate and undergraduate transcripts to: Ms. Nicola Dawkins Environmental Science Program, Trinity College, 300 Summit St., Hartford, CT 06106 e-mail: nicola.dawkins@trincoll.edu.
