Posting Number: F1800126
We invite applicants focused on volcanic processes, including those with expertise in: physical volcanology (especially in combining field observations of eruptive processes and products with modeling and/or experimental approaches), and in petrology, geophysics, and geochemistry as those relate to volcanic eruptions. Application to hazards and risk assessment is also highly desired.
The successful candidates will join the Department's volcanology research group (http://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/geology.html), which maintains interdisciplinary collaborations within UB and internationally, and will have opportunities to participate in several centers and initiatives at UB related to natural hazards, environmental sustainability, and computational sciences. In addition to state of the art laboratories, candidates will have access to the Geohazards Field Station and the UB Center for Computational Research (http://www.buffalo.edu/ccr.html). The successful candidates will be expected to develop and maintain innovative, extramurally funded research programs that build on our current research and education strengths in Climate Change, Ecosystems and Adaptation, Water and the Environment, and in Geohazards, Volcanoes and Geodynamics. The successful candidates will have a demonstrated commitment to teaching; teaching duties will involve core undergraduate courses and graduate level courses in the candidates' specialties. Service to the discipline, department and/or university is expected. Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. degree at the time of appointment.
