Department of Geology & Geophysics
Two Assistant Professors - Radiogenic or non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry / Shallow Earth geophysics
The University of Hawaii, Manoa, SOEST (School of Ocean Earth Science and Technology) Department of Geology & Geophysics was founded in 1959. Faculty 30-35, Students 50-70 graduate and 40-50 undergraduate. Research in Volcanism and natural hazards, Hydrogeology and costal geology, Isotope geochemistry, Plate techtonics and deep Earth processes, Geobiology, Igneous petrology.
The Department of Geology and Geophysics, School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, University of Hawai`i at Manoa, invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level in the following areas: Radiogenic or non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry: We encourage applicants who will pursue novel applications of isotope geochemistry to problems in Earth and environmental science, especially those that capitalize on Hawaii's unique environment. An interest in methodological innovation is also desirable. The new hire will have the expertise to utilize and contribute to the operation of existing MC-ICP-MS and TIMS instruments and associated clean laboratory. Opportunities for collaborative isotope research across SOEST include volcanology, mantle geochemistry, biogeochemistry, cosmochemistry, environmental sciences, ecology, Earth history, marine geochemistry and oceanography. Additional position and laboratory details at: http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/positions/geochemistry.html Shallow Earth geophysics: We invite applicants to join an entrepreneurial research group with international recognition in geology, geophysics, and geochemistry. The new hire will have expertise in geophysical field methods as applied to hydrology, hydrogeophysics, and/or geothermal/hydrothermal processes. Relevant geophysical tools could involve potential fields, electrical and/or magnetic methods, radar, LiDAR and seismology. We will consider expertise in the full range of platform technologies: land, sea, air, and space-mounted. Additional interest in geomorphology, coastal processes, or geologic hazards would allow an applicant to further capitalize on opportunities in Hawaii. Additional details can be found at: www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/positions/geophysics.html
The successful candidates will demonstrate the capability for innovative, high quality research, and for effective teaching and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. They are expected to develop and sustain outstanding research programs and contribute to the department's educational mission. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geology and geophysics or other relevant disciplines received no later than appointment date. Informal inquiries should be directed to the respective Search Committee Chair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply, submit (a) a cover letter, (b) a curriculum vitae which includes a summary of educational background, previous research and teaching experience, and a list of publications and research funding, (c) a statement of current and future research and teaching interests, and (d) the contact information (postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses) for at least three references and official transcripts (copies are acceptable with applications, originals are required upon hire).
Applicants are encouraged to include in their research statement, plans for possible collaborative research with G&G, SOEST and other university faculty. The cover letter should be addressed either to the Geophysics Search or to the Geochemistry Search.
