glaciology position (soft money) at the University of Washington

Eric Steig
The Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of
Washington invites applicants for a full-time (100% FTE, 12 months)
research assistant professor or research associate professor position in
glaciology.

We are interested in candidates whose research areas include, but are
not limited to, dynamic behavior of ice sheets, subglacial processes,
ice-shelf physics and ice-shelf/ocean interactions, fast-shrinking
mountain glaciers, and dynamics of ice masses elsewhere in the solar
system. We are particularly interested in individuals who combine
observational programs with ice-sheet models that incorporate physical
processes to link the cryosphere to climate, and to understand feedbacks
in the evolution of landscape in glaciated settings. Opportunities for
participation in the teaching program will be available through
seminars, occasional classroom lectures, and supervision of
undergraduate and graduate students.
The successful candidate will be expected to secure extramural funding
to support his or her research, participate in the intellectual life of
the department, mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and
participate in departmental service activities. Applicants must hold a
Ph.D. in Geophysics, Geology or a related field at the time of
appointment. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography,
description of research interests, and the names of four references.
All materials should be sent to: Glaciology Search Committee, c/o Nathan
Briley. Electronic materials are preferred and may be sent to
[hidden email]. Hard copies can be mailed to: Nathan Briley, Department
of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington, Box 351310,
Seattle, WA 98195-1310. Preference will be given to applications
received prior to Sept 16, 2012.

The University of Washington is an affirmative action, equal opportunity
employer. The University of Washington, a recipient of the 2006 Alfred
P. Sloan award for Faculty Career Flexibility, is committed to
supporting the work-life balance of its faculty.
