AffiliationGeochemistry & Cosmochemistry Group, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Graduate School of Environmental Studies
Job Title and Number of Positions Available
One position at the Associate Professor level
Date of Commencement of Employment
As early as possible after 1st April 2017.
The Geochemistry & Cosmochemistry Group of Nagoya University study the environment of Earth and solar planets on a global scale including human interaction thorough the analyses of the chemical and isotopic compositions of terrestrial and extraterrestrial samples, and the astronomical observation of interstellar matters in the millimeter and infrared wave length. The Group has the following three themes as the principal pillars of research and education: 1) Cosmochemistry, 2) Geochemistry, and 3) Environmental Geochemistry.
See details in our home page (*1).
Our department seeks to employ a person who can work with the present faculty to promote research and education in one of three themes (Cosmochemistry, Geochemistry, and Environmental Geochemistry) with preference given to someone with expertise in isotope analytical techniques. The successful applicant will be expected to supervise graduate students in the master's and doctoral programs of the Graduate School of Environmental Studies, and contribute to the undergraduate programs of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the Liberal arts course Introduction to Earth and Planetary Science.
Applicants must satisfy all of the following requirements.
Application materials required (in Japanese or English)
All application documents must arrive by Monday 31st October 2016.
Address to Which to Application Documents should be sent
Prof. Makoto TAKEUCHI (Head of Department)
*Applications should be sent in one envelope and Application documents for a faculty position in the Geochemistry & Cosmochemistry Group should be clearly written on the front in red. The envelope should contain all the application documents (1) - (7) both as printed material and as pdf files in a CD-R. The application package should be sent by registered mail. In addition to the postal materials, documents (1)-(6) should be sent electronically as pdf files attached to an e-mail. Due to the potentially large size, documents (7) should not be sent by e-mail.
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences consists of the Earth and Planetary Science Division (EPS) and Hydrospheric-Atmospheric Science Division (HAS). The present position is available in the EPS Division, which consists of four separate Groups (or koza): Earth Systems Science, Geology and Geobiology, Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry, and Earth and Planetary Physics. In addition, members of the EPS Division work in close collaboration with members of the Earth and Planetary Dynamics Group (Earthquake and Volcano Research Center affiliated with the Graduate School of Environmental Studies) and the Earth History Study Group (The Nagoya University Museum and Center for Chronological Research). In addition to their primary affiliation to the Graduate School of Environmental Studies, faculty members are also affiliated to Faculty of Science and responsible for the undergraduate program in Earth Sciences.
