Tenure track positions, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis USA

Chris Paola
We are about to begin reviewing files for two positions but applications are welcome and encouraged until the positions are filled. The positions are described below; the surface-process position in particular is broad enough to include a range of ice-related specializations. You can read more about the department at  http://www.esci.umn.edu/.

Two Tenure‐track Faculty Positions
University of Minnesota ‐ Department of Earth Sciences

We invite applications for two tenure‐track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, one in the
general area of Earth Surface Processes and one in the general area of Hydrogeologic Processes. We are
seeking colleagues who will build innovative research programs and complement and extend our
research and teaching strengths.

Areas of focus for the Earth Surface Processes position could include physical, chemical, and/or
biological aspects of Earth‐surface dynamics and evolution; for example, interactions of tectonic, glacial,
and/or coastal systems with landscapes; research on changing surface environmental conditions and
their causes in modern or ancient systems; critical zone processes; planetary surface dynamics; natural
hazards; surface response to climate change; or near‐surface processes associated with energy, mineral,
and water resources.

Areas of focus for the Hydrogeologic Processes position could include physical, chemical, and/or
biological aspects of groundwater geology; for example, groundwater, solute, and/or energy transfer
dynamics; groundwater‐lake‐surface water interactions; environmental hydrogeology; groundwater and
climate change; connections between hydrogeologic processes and tectonics, seismicity, landscape
evolution, ore genesis; role of groundwater in biological and/or geochemical cycles; or life in extreme

Successful candidates will teach courses in their fields of expertise at the undergraduate and graduate
levels and will participate in the breadth of instruction in our curriculum

The Department of Earth Sciences is part of the N.H. Winchell School of Earth Sciences, which also hosts
NSF‐funded research centers (the National Lacustrine Core Repository; the National Center for Earthsurface
Dynamics; and the Institute for Rock Magnetism) and includes the Limnological Research Center,
the Minnesota Geological Survey, and the Polar Geospatial Center. College and University resources
include: St Anthony Falls Laboratory, Institute on the Environment, Materials Characterization Facility,
Supercomputer Institute, and Digital Technology Center. Further information concerning the
Department and School of Earth Sciences is at www.esci.umn.edu.

Appointment could begin as early as summer 2013. A Ph.D. degree must be earned by the time of
appointment. Review of applications will begin September 4, 2012 and will continue until an
appointment is made.

All candidates must complete an online application via the University of Minnesota employment system
at: https://employment.umn.edu (requisition number 178172 for Earth Surface; 178199 for
Hydrogeology). The application includes (1) a curriculum vitae that includes a complete list of
publications, (2) a statement of research interests, (3) a statement of teaching interests, and (4) names,
addresses and e‐mail addresses of at least three references. Questions about these positions can be
directed to Professor Katsumi Matsumoto, [hidden email] (Earth Surface Processes) and Professor
William Seyfried, [hidden email] (Hydrogeologic Processes).

The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
