Angeles, California, invites applications for a faculty position in global
geophysics at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate
Professor level. We seek candidates who will develop a program

the lithosphere and its interactions with the Earth’s deep mantle and
fluid envelopes. The successful candidate will bring new
approaches—observational, experimental, computational, and/or
theoretical—to lithospheric studies and will demonstrate a strong
commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. We are particularly
interested in candidates who can connect research on lithospheric problems
to other areas of departmental interest, which include global environmental
change, geobiology, and earthquake system science (http://dornsife.usc.edu/
earth/). Applicants must have a PhD in a related field.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement
of teaching and research interests, and three or more names of individuals
familiar with the applicant's work who could be contacted for letters of
