The Geology Department at Pomona College, the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, invites applications for a 3-year, non-tenure-track position beginning July 1, 2020 to teach courses and assist with senior thesis supervision.

We seek a candidate eager to interact with talented undergraduates in a liberal arts college environment where teaching and research are emphasized.
