Biogeochemistry faculty position in Biology at Kent State University

Come join the team of amazing scientists at Kent State University. I am not involved in the search and it’s not my department, but I’d still love to see a great new collaborator (co-conspirator?) arrive on campus. 

Tenure-Track Faculty Position – Biogeochemistry

Kent State University Department of Biological Sciences is seeking applicants to fill a tenure-track position in the field of Biogeochemistry.
