The Department of Geological Sciences aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Earth materials and processes, train students who will excel in the geoscience workforce, and create sustainable solutions to Earth-related societal needs.
Geological research provides an understanding of issues associated with the physical Earth and skills which are in demand in today’s job market. Courses in geology provide the background for careers in geology, STEM teaching, public policy, and environmental risk assessment, among others. The geology graduate will have a detailed understanding of climate change, sustainability of the Earth’s resources and the close interplay between human activity and the environment.
Plate Margin Dynamics
We invite applications for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-accruing position in plate margin dynamics and environments at the Assistant Professor level with an anticipated start date of August 16, 2019. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in processes such as multiscale deformation, magmatism, basin evolution, and/or seismogenesis. We encourage applications from scientists who take a multidisciplinary approach to characterize these environments, past and present.
