Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Position in Solid Earth Processes in the Lithosphere - Florida State University, USA

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) at the Florida State University (FSU) seeks a Solid Earth Geologist with preference for a Metamorphic petrologist for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position. The ideal candidate will employ “process” oriented research that provides insight into the transfer of heat and mass in the lithosphere by integrating natural observations, analytical methods, and complementary numerical modeling. Research areas could include but are not limited to fluid-rock interactions, interaction of lithosphere and exosphere, volatile sequestration, and time-scales and rates of lithospheric processes approached from a petrological perspective.

Candidates must hold a doctorate from an accredited institution or the highest degree in Earth Science or a related field. The appointee is expected to develop and maintain a vigorous externally funded research program and to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The appointee is also expected to contribute to the department’s strong commitment to field-based undergraduate education, which includes FSU’s Geology field course.

EOAS has over 40 faculty members, approximately 150 graduate students, a diverse undergraduate population, and grants graduate degrees in Geology, Meteorology, Oceanography, and Environmental Sciences. EOAS has been undergoing rapid growth over the past few years, and the department is moving into the new EOAS building in the Fall of 2019. For additional information on EOAS and FSU’s resources, please check https://www.eoas.fsu.edu/research/#Research%20Facilities

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information for three references using FSU’s electronic submission system at http://jobs.fsu.edu. Applications should be submitted to job opening # 46341. Review of applications will begin immediately. 

Application deadline: 18 November 2019
