Dear Colleagues,

Kindly note, and forward as appropriate, the following expansion position in our department.

Rick Aster

Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Geoscience

POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT:  Assistant Professor in Geosciences
The Geosciences Department in the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University seeks a 9-month tenure-track Assistant Professor with a preferred start date of August 2015.
We seek an enthusiastic Geoscientist to help build our education offerings in the area of Petroleum Geosciences and to develop a strong research program in an area that complements existing programs in the department.  Areas of specialization may include, but are not limited to: petroleum geology, organic geochemistry, biogeochemistry, active-geophysical imaging, stratigraphy, basin analysis, fluid-flow in rock as applied to hydrocarbons, structural geology, reservoir geology, or environmental implications of modern oil and gas development. Candidates with a wider range of cognate interests are encouraged to apply.
Minimum Qualifications: (1) a Ph.D. in geology or a closely related discipline at the time of appointment, (2) a strong research record and future potential in geosciences, (3) evidence of research interests that complement and enhance existing departmental strengths, and that catalyze new interdisciplinary directions in the future, and (4) evidence of teaching interests that strengthen the department’s offerings in petroleum geosciences and related areas.
Preferred Qualifications: (1) a commitment to geo-education and potential for excellence in teaching, including field education and professional career preparation of undergraduate and graduate students, (2) an interest in research and associated activities related to geoscience hydrocarbon industries, (3) an established or promising peer-reviewed publication record, (4) the ability to obtain and manage external research funding, and (5) the ability to establish strong research and industry partnership programs within the department, college and/or university.
Responsibilities: Primary responsibilities of the position will include (1) teaching undergraduate courses in petroleum geosciences, (2) teaching graduate classes in the area of specialization, (3) building a strong externally funded research program, (4) advising and mentoring student research at undergraduate and graduate levels, (5) contributing to department, university, and national/international service and outreach, including growing and sustaining diverse and productive liaisons with existing and future department partners on campus, with agencies, and with industry. Reflecting departmental and institutional values, candidates are expected to have the ability to advance the Department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The Department: The Department of Geosciences has twelve full time faculty. The department offers B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and currently has about 180 majors and 65 graduate students. In keeping with the mission of a Land Grant University, the program is known for its strength in field-based research, commitment to teaching, outreach to solve resource management problems, and basic research programs in sedimentology/stratigraphy, petrology/geochemistry, tectonics, hydrogeology/geomorphology, petroleum geology, economic geology, seismology/geophysics, and geodynamics. There are widespread interdisciplinary collaborations across campus and within the home College. The department maintains state-of-the-art UNIX and PC computational facilities, geophysical facilities that include near-surface seismic, resistivity, and ground penetrating radar systems, LIDAR, and a Scintrex CG5 gravimeter, a Linkam fluid inclusion microthermometry stage, and hosts a Re-Os TIMS facility. Other instrumentation available on campus includes a JEOL JSM-6500F SEM, a JEOL JSM2100F TEM, a PerkinElmer Elan DRC II ICP-MS, an ICP-AE, an XRD, and a light element stable isotope facility.
The Locality: Our location in northern Colorado offers excellent local and regional opportunities for field-based research and teaching in the Rocky Mountains and High Plains. Numerous opportunities exist for multi-institutional collaboration given our proximity to other research universities, the USGS, EPA, other state and federal agencies, and strong regional environmental, petroleum, and mineral industries. Fort Collins is a mid-size city with a high quality of life, a pleasant climate, good schools, and spectacular opportunities for outdoor recreation. It is often ranked as one of the top five locations to live in the U.S. Proximity to metropolitan Denver provides ready access to a major center of the hydrocarbons industry and a major international airport.
Application Procedure: For full consideration send curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and names and addresses of at least three referees by January 23, 2015 to warnercnr.colostate.edu/employment-opportunities.html<http://warnercnr.colostate.edu/employment-opportunities.html>.   Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  References will not be contacted without prior notification of candidates.
