POSITION: The Department of Geology at Baylor University invites applications for a Junior Level hire at the rank of Assistant Professor in Applied Geophysics beginning August, 2013.
The Department currently consists of 14 geoscientists (http://www.baylor.edu/Geology/). Preference will be given to a candidate with a strong background in quantitative sciences whose research interests complement those of existing geophysical strengths in our department. Current strengths include earthquake seismology, potential field methods, geodynamics, and petroleum geology. Research involving processing and interpretation of seismic reflection data, and integrated interpretation with other geophysical and geological data, is desirable, although other research areas in geophysics would be considered. The successful candidate should have the potential to attract external funds and to build a strong research program involving graduate students. The successful candidate should also have the potential to build a vibrant teaching program including graduate and undergraduate courses in geophysics and/or petroleum geology.
QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in geophysics, physics, or geology with an emphasis in geophysics at the time of appointment.
RESPONSIBILITIES: The individual must be able to communicate and collaborate with Geology faculty members who are currently engaged in studies involving the general area of applied geophysics, and to carry out a vigorous externally funded research program that involves both undergraduate and graduate students. A strong commitment to excellence in teaching is essential, with both undergraduate and graduate courses that might include introductory geophysics, as well as other courses in his/her area of specialization.
RANK AND SALARY: Commensurate with experience and qualifications.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Applications will be reviewed beginning September 30, 2012 and will be accepted until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, complete applications must be submitted by January 15, 2013.
