Faculty Position in Geology or Geophysics at the University of Michigan

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of 
Michigan anticipates an opening for a tenure-track assistant professor 
in the areas of geology or geophysics for a university-year appointment 
starting September 1, 2016.  The Department intends to pursue additional 
hires in this direction in future years, and we are particularly 
interested in candidates whose strengths will complement existing 
research programs within the Department.

*Geology:*We encourage applications from candidates whose research 
interests encompass the origin, evolution, or dynamics of the 
continents.  The successful candidate will develop a strong field-based 
research program, complemented by expertise in modern analytical 
techniques or in numerical or analogue modeling.  Candidates with an 
interest in understanding continental evolution in deep geologic time 
are particularly encouraged to apply.

*Geophysics:*We encourage applications from candidates who will develop 
an observationally based research program using geophysical methods 
(e.g. seismology, geodesy, or potential fields) to study the Earth at 
the crustal or continental scale.  We are particularly interested in 
those applicants whose work is relevant to societal concerns including 
natural hazards, such as earthquakes, volcanism, and associated hazards, 
or environmental change to the hydrosphere or cryosphere.

The successful candidate is expected to establish an independent 
research program and contribute to both undergraduate and graduate 
teaching.  Applicants must have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment, and 
should submit a CV, statement of current and future research plans, 
statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching 
excellence (if any), and names and contact information of at least four 
persons who can provide letters of recommendation.

Information about the Department and instructions for submitting an 
application can be found at www.lsa.umich.edu/earth.

To apply please go 
tohttp://www.earth.lsa.umich.edu/facultysearch/newapplicant, complete 
the online form and upload the required application documents as a 
single PDF file.  If you have any questions or comments, please send an 
email message toMichigan-Earth-Search at umich.edu 
<mailto:Michigan-Earth-Search at umich.edu>.

The application deadline is September 15, 2015 for full consideration, 
but applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is 
filled.  Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.  The University 
of Michigan is supportive of the needs of dual career couples and is an 
equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
