Faculty position in Sea Level, Geodynamics, Geophysics, Geodesy, Cryosphere at U of Miami
The Department of Marine Geosciences (MGS) at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), University
of Miami (UM), seeks outstanding candidates for tenure track positions at either the assistant or associate professor level. We are seeking to hire into two areas, as follows.
First, geodynamics and geophysics. We are interested in candidates accomplished (1) in measuring or modelling of sea level changes, a field of direct relevance to Miami, or (2) in the wide field of active geological
processes and hazards. Teaching ability in numerical modelling methods, hydrogeology, petrology or structural geology will be viewed favorably. The successful candidate is encouraged to interact with the Geodesy and Seismology group and/or the Center of Computational
Sciences. We encourage applications from candidates using NASA’s forthcoming Earth Observation missions (including cryosphere).
For the second position we seek a candidate researching the geological evolution of the global carbon cycle and past climate. Central to this discipline is analysis of the interaction between the carbon cycle and other
critical elemental systems, such as sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen, and key nutrients. Teaching ability in the themes of Earth materials, environmental geochemistry, and geobiology will be viewed favorably. The University of Miami offers a unique tropical location
and the opportunity to integrate biological and physical oceanographic expertise into process-oriented geological research through collaboration with faculty in the Departments of Marine Biology and Ecology and Ocean Sciences. The successful candidate is encouraged
to interact with current faculty in the Comparative Sedimentology Laboratory, a center with a long tradition of excellence in research and training in carbonate sedimentology which hosts a vibrant student population.
Candidates for these positions will be expected to develop vigorous, externally funded research programs, supervise students, and participate in the teaching mission of the Department and the School at both the graduate
and undergraduate levels.
Questions should be directed to Sam Purkis, Chair of the Department of Marine Geosciences ([hidden email])
and applications should be made to the Chair of the Search Committee, Guoqing Lin ([hidden email]).
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statement and contact information for at least 3 referees.
Applications will only be accepted electronically. A PhD degree in a relevant field is required. Review of applications will begin on January 29. The positions will remain open until filled.
The University of Miami is an equal opportunity employer.
