1) Assistant Professor in Shallow Environmental/Engineering Geophysics – Department of Geological Sciences, University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)

Tenure-track faculty position
Assistant Professor, Shallow Environmental/Engineering Geophysics
University of Texas at El Paso
College of Science
Department of Geological Sciences

The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) announces a tenure-track position in shallow environmental/engineering geophysics. We are particularly interested in candidates with a concentration in shallow characterization (e.g., potential fields, seismic, etc.) and/or modeling relevant to a wide range of issues, including but not limited to environmental applications that would connect geophysical, geomechanical, geochemical, hydrological, and biological observations. We seek candidates whose teaching and research will integrate into one or more of the Department’s focus areas: solid Earth and environmental geophysics, Earth system geochemistry, tectonics and sedimentation, geospatial research, professional and entrepreneurial geoscience, and science learning and education. The successful candidate will teach a combination of introductory, upper division, and graduate classes.  Applicants must demonstrate both a strong publication record and the potential to attract research funding from a variety of external sources. The ability to collaborate with other faculty both within and external to the Department is highly desired.

The University of Texas at El Paso is a burgeoning national and international research university committed to access and excellence. A leader among Hispanic-serving institutions, UTEP enrolls over 25,000 students and is the only doctoral research university in the nation with a majority Mexican-American student body. The Department includes a vibrant group of 21 tenured and tenure-track faculty, and offers a B.S. and M.S. in Geophysics, a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Geology, and a B.S. and M.S. in Environmental Science. We also support student training in interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs with Environmental Science and Engineering and Computational Science.

Qualifications: The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant field at the time of appointment. Candidates capable of building active research programs, teaching at all levels, and engaging in collaborative research are encouraged to apply. A track record of peer-reviewed publications and attainment of research funding is preferred. Teaching experience in the field, laboratory or classroom will also be a consideration. Demonstrated collaborations in research are valued as well.

To Apply: Applications must submit the following: (1) a letter of interest, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a description of research interests, (4) a description of teaching interests, (5) a description of how the applicant would approach broadening participation of underrepresented groups in the geosciences, and (6) complete contact information for at least three references. Review of applications will begin immediately, and continue until the position is filled. The anticipated appointment date is fall 2018. Please contact Search Committee Chair Dr. Marianne Karplus (mkarplus@utep.edu) for questions and additional information.

2) Assistant or Associate Professor in Geology – Subduction Zone Initiative  – Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington

The University of Washington (UW) seeks a geologist with a compelling vision for subduction zone research and the collaborative leadership skills to contribute to a new subduction zone initiative at UW. This faculty position is in the Department of Earth & Space Sciences (ESS) of the College of the Environment and is expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure track) or Associate Professor (with tenure).

The new faculty member will be a geologist who studies the evolution of subduction systems through the interpretation of the rock record. Candidates should use geological field observations to establish context for interpreting the rock record, and combine these approaches with other analytical, theoretical, or experimental techniques. We particularly encourage applicants who examine high-temperature processes, and who complement existing strengths in ESS.

Please follow the link below for a full description of the position, qualifications, and instructions on how to apply: https://ap.washington.edu/ahr/academic-jobs/position/aa25938/

Preference will be given to applications received prior to January 2, 2018. Questions about the position can be addressed to the search committee chair, Dr. Katharine Huntington (kate1@uw.edu).
