Department of Geology, University at Buffalo
Assistant Professor of Volcanology. We invite applicants focused on volcanic processes, including those with expertise in: physical volcanology (especially in combining field observations of eruptive processes and products with modeling and/or experimental approaches), and in petrology, geophysics, and geochemistry as those relate to volcanic eruptions. Application to hazards and risk assessment is also highly desired.
Assistant Professor of Hydrology or Biogeochemistry. We invite applications from biogeochemists and hydrologists who combine field measurements, experimental and/or modeling approaches. Applicants that focus on the coupling between biogeochemical and hydrologic processes across a range of scales are of particular interest. Specialized research interests could include: carbon and nutrient dynamics; watershed and/or critical zone biogeochemistry; effects of land use and/or climate changes on carbon, nutrient, or other reactive element fluxes; nutrient and carbon cycling in streams and rivers; biogeochemistry of streams and rivers; rock-water interaction rates as they control elemental fluxes; controls on concentration-discharge relations; biogeochemistry of harmful algal blooms or emerging contaminants. Use of reactive transport modeling to advance theory is a plus. Of particular interest is the ability to support UB's ongoing efforts at the nexus of water, energy and the environment and sustainability.
The successful candidates will join the Department's growing water and established volcanology research groups (http://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/geology.html) that maintain interdisciplinary collaborations within UB and internationally, and will have opportunities to participate in several centers and initiatives at UB related to natural hazards, environmental sustainability, and computational sciences. In addition to state of the art laboratories, candidates will have access to the Geohazards Field Station and the UB Center for Computational Research (http://www.buffalo.edu/ccr.html).
