The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado 
Boulder invites
applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the field of Rock 
Physics. We seek a scientist
who will examine the relationship between stress and deformation in 
earth materials. The focus
and research direction can include experimental, theoretical, applied, 
or field methods related to
the mechanics of deformation in any part of the earth.
Candidates should describe their plans to build collaborations with our 
existing faculty, and
complement one or more of our strengths in petroleum geology, 
seismology, geodesy,
geomorphology, tectonics, hydrogeology, petrology, mineral physics, and 
structural geology.
The successful candidate will need to develop an externally funded, 
innovative and impactful
research program, and contribute to departmental teaching at both 
undergraduate and graduate
levels.
Applications must include statements of research and teaching interests; 
a curriculum vitae;
reprints of three papers; and names and contact information of three 
individuals who can
provide letters of recommendation. Research statements should include a 
description of what
applicants consider to be the important problems in their field, and how 
they will design a
research program to address these problems. Teaching statements should 
address goals and
approaches to instruction. Applications will receive full consideration 
if received by November 8,
2017 and must be received by November 22, 2017. For further information, 
contact the Chair
of the search committee, Craig Jones (cjones at colorado.edu).
This 9-month tenure-track position is at the Assistant Professor level 
with a start date as early
as July 1, 2018. A PhD in Earth science or a related field must be 
conferred prior to the start of
the appointment. The Department of Geological Sciences is affiliated 
with several research
centers and institutes (EMARC, INSTAAR, CSDMS, CIRES, LASP) and offers a 
diverse set of
resources for teaching and research. The department has an ongoing 
GeoEnergy initiative that
the successful applicant can help shape. Visit
