Two Faculty Positions in Volcanology (tenured or tenure track)

Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon

The Department of Earth Sciences (formerly Geological Sciences) is seeking outstanding scientists to fill two new open-rank faculty positions beginning Fall 2017 as part of a newly funded Center for Volcanology and Volcanic Hazards.  Appointment can be at any rank from tenure-track assistant professor to tenured full professor. We seek applicants who investigate eruption precursors, volcano deformation, conduit processes, magma fragmentation, plume behavior, and/or the transport and deposition of tephra through the use of remote sensing, geodesy, and theoretical, experimental, or numerical modeling approaches. We anticipate filling at least one of the two positions at the assistant professor level, so junior candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.  The potential for establishing a vigorous independent research program in volcanology and active participation and excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be the most important criteria for selection.  A Ph.D. is required, and postdoctoral experience is preferred for applicants at the assistant professor level. We seek candidates who will complement our existing strengths in volcanology, petrology, geochemistry, seismology, geodynamics, and surface processes.

Applicants must apply at Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7521. The application process requires candidates to upload a current CV, an overview of current and future research (2 page limit), a statement of teaching experience and interests detailing evidence of teaching excellence (2 page limit), a statement of contributions to diversity (1 page limit), and the names of three or more references.  Further inquiries concerning this search should be sent to Paul Wallace (pwallace@uoregon.edu). Review of applications will begin on Nov. 15, 2016, and will continue until suitable candidates are identified.
