The Thiel College Department of Environmental Science is pleased to announce a search for a tenure-track faculty position as the founding Program Director of the College’s Environmental Safety Management program, starting in August 2019. Full implementation of the program will occur for the Academic Year 2019-2020.


The successful candidate will hold a M.S. or Ph.D. in Safety Management and have a minimum of five years of experience in the field. While specialization in the field is open, ability to teach a wide range of courses at the undergraduate level is anticipated. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with academic credentials.


Responsibilities include teaching, advising and mentoring students as well as collaboration with Admissions to attract talented students who will be successful in the major and at the College. In addition to teaching undergraduate courses, the successful candidate will also be expected to be involved in recruiting students to the program, developing and supporting internship opportunities for students, curriculum development and enhancement, including OSHA certifications, and advising students.


The successful candidate will possess the ability to teach courses with an applied focus that emphasizes experiential learning. Teaching assignments include foundational and upper-level courses within the Environmental Safety Management curriculum as needed to support department programs.


While Thiel College gives highest priority to teaching effectiveness, the applicant will be expected to remain current in the field through professional development opportunities such as attendance at related conferences, research, or other scholarly activities. It is expected that the successful candidate will be an active member of the campus community through service on committees and participation in campus events.


A comprehensive employee benefit package including research support and a sabbatical program is provided.


The program is housed in the Environmental Science Department and the Program Director will report directly to the Chair of the Department of Environmental Science.

Applicants should send a cover letter stating teaching and research interests, a current curriculum vitae or resume, official undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three confidential reference letters including e-mail addresses and phone numbers of references to employment@thiel.edu (preferred), or to Jennifer Clark, Director of Human Resources, Thiel College, 75 College Avenue, Greenville, PA 16125.


Review of applications will begin October 5, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.

Thiel College is committed to attracting a culturally and professionally diverse faculty and staff who engage our students by providing a rich and fulfilling curricular and co-curricular experience.
