Applications Invited For Faculty Positions in
Quantitative Geophysical and/or Geochemical Modeling, and Global Change

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California 
in San
Diego invites applications to fill one or more positions at the 
Assistant
Professor (tenure-track) level in one or more of the fields listed 
below. We
seek motivated, broad-thinking scientist-educators to establish vigorous
research programs and provide intellectual leadership in their fields 
while
complementing existing expertise at Scripps, other UCSD departments, 
and nearby
research institutions.

Successful candidates will be expected to teach classes and supervise 
research
at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The positions require a 
PhD
degree and a competitive record of publication, as well as evidence of 
the
ability to conduct and fund an active research program consistent with 
the
opportunity to have done so at this career level.

Two of the areas for which applications are being solicited are:

Quantitative geophysical and/or geochemical modeling

We seek a candidate with strong theoretical and quantitative skills in 
any area
that complements existing strengths in earth science research at SIO. 
Possible
areas of interest include seismology and crustal deformation, 
electromagnetics,
geochemical and fluid fluxes.

Global change

We seek a candidate with research interests in the area of cryosphere 
modeling
and sea-level fluctuations. These could include ice sheet dynamics,
interpretation of remote sensing data, or investigations of longer-term
glaciological or geological processes related to sea-level variations 
and the
cryosphere.
