Tenure-track Faculty Position in Crustal Dynamics at Stanford University
The Department of Geological Sciences seeks an outstanding scientist to lead a vibrant research and educational program in the broadly defined area of Crustal Dynamics. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the mechanisms of initiation, growth, linkage, and evolution of fractures and faults; reconciliation of contemporary and geologically observed deformation; the coupling of fluid flow and rock deformation within the crust; the relations between deep and shallow deformation in the crust; the role of rock deformation in development of the near-surface critical zone; and dynamics caused by changes in surface loading (whether by accumulation of ice or sediment, or removal of rock by erosion). We are particularly interested in those who use state-of-the-art laboratory tests, microstructural measurements, developments in material science and applied mechanics, field-based geologic measurements, and computational advances to understand rock deformation. Research approaches should encompass an integrated combination of field, laboratory, and modeling approaches. 

The appointment will be at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent, world-class program of research, interface as appropriate with existing programs in the Geological Sciences and in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, and teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants will need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, statement of research and teaching interests, list of three references with contact information, and three recently-published journal articles that are representative of the applicant’s research. Review of applications will commence October 5th, 2016. The position will remain open until filled. Questions can be directed to Lauren Nelson at Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching, and clinical missions.
