Assistant Professor of Volcanology (tenure track)

Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon

The Department of Earth Sciences is seeking an outstanding scientist to fill a tenure-track faculty position starting Fall 2018 as part of a recently funded Center for Volcanology and Volcanic Hazards. We seek applicants who investigate eruption precursors, conduit processes, magma fragmentation, plume behavior, and/or the transport and deposition of tephra through the use of remote sensing, instrumental monitoring, and theoretical, experimental, or numerical modeling approaches. We are especially interested in applicants who integrate fundamental research on volcanic processes with monitoring of active volcanoes and development of novel methods of data acquisition during volcanic eruptions. The potential for establishing a vigorous independent research program in volcanology and for excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be the most important criteria for selection.

We seek candidates who will complement our existing departmental strengths in volcanology, petrology, geochemistry, seismology, geodynamics, and surface processes.

Applicants must apply at Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9540 (link is external). 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 October 15, 2017, and will continue until suitable candidates are identified.
