Tenure-Track Position in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
The Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position with core expertise in geological, geochemical, geophysical, or geohydrological fundamentals as applied to subsurface fluid flow, fluid-rock interaction, and/or faulting. This position is part of a multi-departmental cluster hire in subsurface energy systems. The ideal candidate will apply these fundamentals in innovative research relevant to fields including geothermal energy, carbon sequestration, hydrocarbon systems and induced seismicity, as well as to natural earth phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanoes, mineralization and hydrochemistry. Scientists with expertise that is either observational or computational in nature are equally encouraged to apply.
The College of Engineering maintains programs in engineering, Earth sciences, hydrology and material sciences, providing an ideal setting for rigorous interdisciplinary research. Other opportunities for cross-disciplinary interactions include the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, the Cornell Energy Institute and the Cornell Center for Materials Research.
Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research, and show promise for attracting external research support. The successful candidate will also be a committed educator, enthusiastic about teaching and supervising students at all levels in research. We anticipate filling the position at the Assistant Professor level, but applications at the Associate level will be considered.
Applicants should submit a cover letter addressed to search chair, Dr. Larry Brown, a curriculum vita, research statement, teaching statement, and complete contact information for three references. Statements including teaching experience and interests, leadership efforts, and contributions to diversity are encouraged. To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017 when review of applications will begin until position is filled.
