Job Details

The Department of Earth System Science (ESS) at The University of California, Irvine is recruiting an Assistant Professor (tenure track) anchored in Earth system science with a research focus in Organic Geochemistry. The goal is to advance our understanding of the complex processes responsible for the transformation, fate, and stability of organic matter and its role in the Earth system. Candidates may focus on any component of the terrestrial and aquatic systems. Areas of interest include redox processes such as carbon-metal interactions, biogeochemical/biological transformations, carbon sequestration, or geochemistry of the past and/or future. Diverse scientific approaches are encouraged, for example detailed characterization of dissolved and particulate pools using novel MS and/or spectroscopic techniques coupled with compound specific studies or C isotopes (e.g. AMS). Candidates are
encouraged to use modelling in their research, but experimental measurements should be the majority of their work.

 We make this appointment with the goal of strengthening the department’s commitment to research, and teaching, and inclusive excellence. UC Irvine’s ESS department was founded to explore the global environmental changes that occur on human time scales. The department has expanded its domain with 26 full-time faculty from diverse backgrounds (http://www.ess.uci.edu/). ESS is the home of world-class geochemical facilities, including the W.M. Keck Carbon Cycle AMS facility, soon including the new MICADAS, and the Center for Isotope Tracers that offers stable isotope and ICPMS capabilities. 

The successful applicant will have: a doctoral degree and research experience in Organic Geochemistry or a related field and a strong research agenda, a commitment to excellence in teaching and in promoting diversity and inclusion, and an interest in becoming part of a collegial and cross-disciplinary department. The position will start July 1, 2023.

 The University of California, Irvine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer advancing inclusive excellence. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, or other protected categories covered by the UC nondiscrimination policy. UCI is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI). We seek faculty who are committed to diversity as well as diverse faculty who will be role models for our students. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, or other protected categories covered by the UC nondiscrimination policy. A recipient of an NSF ADVANCE award for gender equity, UCI is responsive to the needs of dual career couples, supports work-life balance through an array of family-friendly policies, and is dedicated to broadening participation in higher education. Compensation is competitive, and includes priority access to purchase on-campus faculty housing at below-market prices.
