The College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) announces
the availability of a tenure track faculty position in Marine Geology
and Geophysics with a specialty in either remote sensing (at global
or smaller scales) of the solid Earth or other planets, or
application of GPS to studies of crustal dynamics. COAS is
one of the leading oceanographic and atmospheric research
institutions in the country with more than 200 faculty and
staff members, and a wide variety of assets, including an
excellent computing infrastructure, state-of-the-art analytical
laboratories and two research vessels. We seek a colleague whose
research will complement and enhance the existing nationally
and internationally recognized research programs within COAS
in geology and geophysics, and in oceanographic satellite remote sensing.

TITLE:  Assistant/Associate Professor in a tenure track position.

SALARY: Commensurate with experience.

        For full consideration, applications must be received by 31 January 

The appointee will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous,
externally funded research program, to interact with faculty colleagues,
to advise and mentor graduate students, and to participate in the
COAS teaching program.

Essential qualifications include a Ph.D. in geophysics or a closely
related field, a record of significant and innovative research,
and the clear potential to attract external funding. Experience
in mentoring or teaching of graduate students is desirable.
The applicant should have a strong background in the broad area
of airborne or satellite remote sensing of the solid Earth.
Possible areas of specialization include GPS, interferometric
synthetic aperture radar (INSAR), LIDAR, altimetry, and
global satellite remote sensing of magnetic or gravitational
fields.  A demonstrated interest in integrating large datasets
with physics-based numerical modeling to advance understanding
of solid Earth processes is highly desirable.  Interest in
interacting with COAS faculty in new national initiatives such
as EarthScope and PBO, and/or with faculty involved in oceanographic
remote sensing applications is also desirable.  Preference will
be given to candidates at the Assistant Professor level,
however, applicants with an exceptional record of research
achievements and other relevant experience may be considered
at the Associate Professor level.  Candidates with a
demonstrable commitment to promoting and enhancing diversity
will be given preference.

        Send a statement of interest (reference position 005-566),
resumé, and names, addresses (including electronic addresses)
and telephone numbers of three references to:
