The Nevada Seismological Laboratory (NSL) at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) invites applications for an Assistant Professor position in earthquake seismology. We seek to hire an observational seismologist who specializes in topics including, but not limited to: earthquake source processes, multi-hazard early detection algorithm development, ground motion prediction, seismic hazard assessment, and artificial intelligence/machine learning applied to seismology. Applicants must have a PhD at the time of appointment and demonstrate a commitment to undergraduate and graduate education in seismology and the development of an externally funded research program. Ideal candidates will pursue cutting-edge research applying the NSL regional data archive and complementary datasets to understand earthquake processes, and participate in leadership to facilitate the operations and continued development of NSL’s real-time multi-hazard monitoring networks. This is a 9-month, full-time, tenure-track, continuing appointment with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2021. The NSL faculty have academic appointments with research, teaching, mentoring, and service obligations. Teaching responsibilities include one class per year that benefits undergraduate and/or graduate students in the UNR Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering programs. We encourage candidates to explain achievable plans for funded research that contribute to NSL’s multi-hazard monitoring mission in their letters of interest.
