Comment:  Despite potentially conflicting messages in the advertisement 
below, the department has strong interests in all of the disciplines 
listed: “exploration geophysics, petrophysics, rheology, geodynamics, 
geodesy, and seismology”.  We anticipate multiple hires from this 
college-level advertisement, so we will consider each applicant on 
his/her own merits.  - (John Hole)

Computational Geophysics

The College of Science at Virginia Tech (http://www.cos.vt.edu), in 
cooperation with the Institute for Critical Technology and Applied 
Science (ICTAS, http://www.eng.vt.edu/ictas/) and the Institute for 
Biomedical and Public Health Sciences (IBPHS, 
http://www.ibphs.vt.edu/), is seeking to strengthen its prominence in 
COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE through interdisciplinary faculty hires. As part 
of this initiative, the Department of Geosciences, is searching to fill 
a tenure-track position to start in the fall of 2005 in the focus area 
of COMPUTATIONAL GEOPHYSICS, including exploration geophysics, 
petrophysics, rheology, geodynamics, geodesy, and seismology.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in Geosciences or a related field 
and have a demonstrated record of application of high level 
computational techniques to geophysical problems. Priority will be 
given to candidates with a strong background in borehole geophysics 
and/or petrophysics. Post doctoral or petroleum industry experience is 
preferred. The applicant should have a strong commitment to 
undergraduate and graduate education.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous, 
externally funded research program involving field/laboratory 
experiments and computational numerical modeling that will integrate 
with existing programs in exploration seismology, sequence 
stratigraphy, hydrology and engineering rock mechanics.

A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. Questions regarding the 
position should be directed to J. Donald Rimstidt, Department Chair, 
jdr02 at vt.edu or (540) 231-6894. For detailed information about the 
Department, applicants are encouraged to visit the Department's Home 
Page at http://www.geol.vt.edu/.
