Job Details

The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne in Switzerland invites applications for an Assistant Professor in 4D digital field and structural geology, to be based in the Institute of Earth Sciences (ISTE).

We are looking for a candidate capable of leveraging remote sensing technologies (e.g., UAV mapping, structure from motion, LiDAR, hyperspectral and thermal cameras, inSAR, airborne imagery, geophysics) to advance field-focused structural geology research. We are particularly interested in research aiming at understanding the formation of mountains, their transformations and rock deformation through space and time (4D) by linking surface observations with, for example, deep structural constraints offered by geophysics, structural geology concepts or process-based modelling. The ideal candidate has a strong collaborative spirit and is willing to develop scientific collaborations over multiple domains of expertise within the Earth sciences. Knowledge about geology of the Alps and/or future research plans for this region is desirable. We are also interested in candidates addressing societal challenges related to the environment, resources or infrastructure. A willingness to contribute to structural geology teaching including field-based courses is expected.

The successful candidate is expected to i) develop a competitive research program within the Institute of Earth Sciences, ii) teach courses in the Bachelor of Geosciences and Environment, and Master programs taught by the FGSE, and, iii) supervise bachelor, master and doctoral students.

Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level (tenure track). However, exceptionally, we will consider outstanding candidates for direct appointment at the Associate Professor level, particularly if this corresponds with our equal opportunity objectives.

Application deadline: 15th of December, 2021
   (23:59 Swiss time GMT+1)
