Department:Earth Sciences Rank:Assistant Professor Annual Basis:9 Month
Application Deadline November 1, 2017; position open until filled
Required Application Materials Applicants must apply at Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9540. The application process requires candidates to upload a current CV, an overview of current and future research (2 page limit), a statement of teaching experience and interests detailing evidence of teaching excellence (2 page limit), a statement of contributions to diversity (1 page limit), and the names of three or more references.
Position Announcement The Department of Earth Sciences is seeking an outstanding scientist to fill a tenure-track faculty position starting Fall 2018 as part of a recently funded Center for Volcanology and Volcanic Hazards. We seek applicants who investigate eruption precursors, conduit processes, magma fragmentation, plume behavior, and/or the transport and deposition of tephra through the use of remote sensing, instrumental monitoring, and theoretical, experimental, or numerical modeling approaches. We are especially interested in applicants who integrate fundamental research on volcanic processes with monitoring of active volcanoes and development of novel methods of data acquisition during volcanic eruptions. The potential for establishing a vigorous independent research program in volcanology and for excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be the most important criteria for selection.
We seek candidates who will complement our existing departmental strengths in volcanology, petrology, geochemistry, seismology, geodynamics, and surface processes.
Further inquiries concerning this search should be sent to Paul Wallace (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2017, and will continue until suitable candidates are identified.
Department or Program Summary We are a diverse and growing department with strengths in volcanology, petrology, geochemistry, seismology, geodynamics, surface processes, biogeochemistry, oceanography, and paleontology. We particularly welcome applicants who are from populations historically underrepresented in the sciences, and/or who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds.
Minimum Requirements Ph.D. required by time of appointment
Preferred Qualifications Postdoctoral experience is preferred
