The department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Houston invites applications from scientists who bridge conventional geological and geophysical disciplines to research dynamic processes in the solid Earth and/or planets. We are interested in candidates whose cross-disciplinary research will enhance or expand departmental strengths that include deep-Earth structure, thermal evolution, crust and mantle dynamics, orogenesis, planetary evolution and dynamics, and/or basin evolution.
The successful candidates are expected to build active collaborations within and outside the university, to develop externally funded research programs that are internationally recognized, to teach graduate and undergraduate level courses that bridge theory and practical applications in the geosciences, and to use their research to enhance experiential learning at UH. Consideration of candidates at the Associate Professor level will be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Furthermore, we welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. Our institution is located in the energy and space capital of the world with potential collaborative opportunities in the nearby academic, federal, and industrial sectors. More information about the department can be found at http://www.uh.edu/nsm/earth-atmospheric/.
Candidates should submit: 1) a statement of teaching, 2) a statement of research interests, 3) a curriculum vitae, 4) as part of the application please include at least 3 possible references and their contact information. Applications should be submitted online through https://jobs.uh.edu/ by December 5, 2018.
