The Department of Geological Sciences in the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking to hire a faculty member in Sedimentary Geology at the Assistant, Associate or Full professor level. We seek a creative individual who has an innovative research program in sedimentary geology and addresses questions related to clastic sedimentation, dynamic stratigraphy, depositional systems, and basin architecture over geological time scales, with broad applicability to the energy industry. A demonstrated ability to integrate a range of approaches and data types is required, potentially including field-based inquiry, linked surface and subsurface investigations, incorporation of seismic data, and analytical or modeling approaches. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an internationally recognized research program and excel at teaching, mentoring, and service roles within the department, and should have a strong record of securing external research funds. We seek an individual who facilitates collaborations among faculty, researchers, and students in the department and university, and is capable of teaching courses over a wide range of geoscience topics, particularly courses in stratigraphy, sedimentology, and basin analysis.
