The Department of Earth, Environmental & Planetary Sciences at Brown University (http://www.brown.edu/academics/earth-environmental-planetary-sciences/) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment in geochemistry. Any analytical, experimental and theoretical/computational approach to understanding the origin and chemical evolution of the Earth and planets will be considered. Some examples include, but are not limited to, cosmochemistry, planetary petrology, non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry, early Earth evolution, volcanology, and interactions of planetary materials with hydrospheres and atmospheres. Preference will be given to candidates whose strengths complement departmental research expertise in Geochemistry and Petrology, Planetary Geoscience, Geophysics, and Climate and Environment. We seek scientists whose research integrates field observations, geochemical analyses, experimental studies, and geochemical theory and/or modeling. We are interested in scientists whose research transcends traditional boundaries in geochemistry, such as between high-temperature and low-temperature geochemistry, geochemistry and geophysics, and terrestrial and planetary. The successful candidate will maintain an active, externally-funded research program and enjoy a commitment to teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level.
