Assistant Professor in Geodesy (tenure-track)

Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon

The Department of Earth Sciences (formerly Geological Sciences) at the University of Oregon invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position commencing Fall 2017 with a focus on the use of geodetic techniques to study surface and subsurface Earth processes. We seek a dynamic scientist who investigates one or more areas related to change detection of geologic and environmental processes. Techniques may include GPS, InSAR, terrestrial, airborne, or satellite LiDAR, radar altimetry, gravity, or other methods. We are particularly interested in candidates who study natural hazards, cryospheric processes, tectonics, geomorphology, or hydrogeology. Expectations for the position include: 1) establishing an active, externally funded research program, 2) supervising and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, and 3) teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels that contribute to and expand our core and major curriculum. Competitive candidates will complement existing strengths that include: surface processes, fault mechanics, coastal oceanography, and cryosphere processes, as well as major departmental initiatives in volcanology and earthquake early warning.

The application process requires candidates to submit a current CV, research statement (2 page limit), teaching statement (2 page limit), and a statement of contributions to diversity (1 page limit), as well as contact information for at least three references. Minimum requirements at the time of appointment include completion of a PhD from an accredited institution in geosciences, physics, engineering, or a related field with a demonstrated research record in geodesy. Review of applications will begin after Nov. 15, 2016, and will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Inquiries can be directed to:
