As part of a university-wide initiative involving the Turkana Basin Institute, the Department of Geosciences at Stony Brook University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of Geochronology. This position is one of five Presidential TBI faculty lines being created across campus for researchers whose interests intersect with the goals and resources of the Turkana Basin Institute. We seek a candidate with the potential to augment or build upon the Department’s current research strengths across the geosciences and related sciences on campus while taking advantage of Stony Brook’s unique relationship with the Turkana Basin Institute.

Candidates need not, at present, have a research program in the Turkana Basin.

We seek a candidate who will be an effective teacher in undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of geochronology and stratigraphy, and will develop programs that will enhance the department’s tradition of interdisciplinary research. Details of the department’s areas of research emphasis and current facilities may be found at

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in the geosciences or closely related field at the time of appointment; preference will be given to those with related post-doctoral experience. The successful candidate must also have the clear potential to establish an internationally recognized, externally funded research program that would include mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.
