Loyola University Chicago's (LUC) School of Environmental Sustainability (SES) requests applications for a full time tenure track Assistant Professor of Environment Chemistry & Toxicology beginning in August, 2023. The SES particularly encourages faculty of color to apply. We seek an environmental chemist and/or ecotoxicologist who studies the impacts of pollutants and contaminants on the structure and function of natural ecosystems. Candidates should have expertise in the impacts of environmental contamination on the health of microorganisms, plants, animals and/or human health, which could include a variety of areas of specialty. Candidates with research expertise in contaminants of emerging concern including pharmaceuticals, preservatives, disinfectants, pesticides and herbicides, plastics, PFAS, VOCs, endocrine disruptors and other emerging toxins are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful candidates' research will contribute to the developing SES Environmental Health & Toxicology Affinity Group.

A key teaching role for this position includes helping to develop a proficiency in basic chemistry of the environment (chemistry of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, and their interactions through biogeochemical cycling) by teaching ENVS 237/238 and ENVS 274/275, Chemistry of the Environment Lecture & Lab, to SES undergraduate students. The ability to teach ENVS 387, Ecotoxicology is also required, and there are opportunities to develop courses in the candidate's specific areas of expertise.

Loyola University Chicago has been committed to environmental sustainability for 20 years, having transformed its campuses to meet energy, water, and waste efficiencies that have consistently ranked the University in the top 5% of green campuses nationally. The new interdisciplinary School of Environmental Sustainability (SES) currently serves 500 undergraduate and graduate students, and is housed within a state-of-the-art geothermally heated/cooled building complex containing a 3,100 sq ft greenhouse, two aquaponics facilities, a biodiesel production facility, teaching & research labs, environmental analytical lab, ecotoxicology lab, and a green dormitory. The campus prioritizes sustainability with energy efficient LEED certified buildings, permeable pavement, green roof installations, and student-run urban gardens supplying the LUC Farmer's Market. The Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus (LUREC) has restoration projects in a 20-acre wetland and oak/hickory woodland, a 5-acre organic farm, and is a venue for three-week summer field courses and for faculty and student research in sustainable agriculture, ecology, and wetland restoration. For more information about SES, please see our website.

The SES expects to double its number of faculty in the next five years, strategically building toward five pillars of expertise. The SES faculty bring expertise from the multitude of disciplines that contribute to the understanding of and formulation of solutions to environmental problems, including natural science, social science, humanities, economics, business management, public health, law & policy, ethics, GIS, and statistics. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, the SES is building its academic strengths in five affinity areas, each associated with a set of complex vexing social problems under the broader umbrella of environmental sustainability. These SES Affinity Groups include Biodiversity, Environment & Society, Food Systems, Climate & Energy, and Environmental Health & Toxicology.
