Assistant Professors in Earth and Planetary Sciences
The specific area of research specialization within the Earth and planetary sciences is unrestricted. We are interested in novel approaches to understanding fundamental processes occurring within and among the various ‘spheres’ of Earth and/or other planets. Candidates are encouraged to describe how their work may address topics of acute scientific interest and/or critical societal importance. We are especially interested in candidates who demonstrate an ability to think across traditional disciplinary boundaries and forge collaborative research endeavors within and beyond the Department of Geological Sciences.
The Department of Geological Sciences (DGS) is part of the Jackson School of Geosciences (JSG), which includes two other closely allied research units: the Institute for Geophysics and the Bureau of Economic Geology. Altogether, the JSG has a large outstanding community of faculty and research scientists with a broad range of specialties and access to outstanding research facilities and support. In DGS there is a vibrant blend of basic and applied research organized into three programs: Surface Subsurface and Life; Lithosphere and Deep Earth; and Water, Climate and the Environment. We seek faculty members who will develop new and/or expand collaborations among faculty, researchers, and students within the JSG, across campus and around the globe.
Review of applications is planned to begin January 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter; CV; research statement that articulates scientific questions and a plan for addressing them including a collaborative research vision; teaching and mentoring statement that describes a philosophy and a plan for enacting it; and a statement addressing past and/or planned efforts and actions that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service. Contact information for at least three individuals who would be able to provide letters of reference should be supplied on a separate document.
