Tenure-track Faculty Position in Geophysics and Geodynamics

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure-track position in the broad field of geophysics and geodynamics.

We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level but exceptional candidates at the Associate and Full Professor level will be given full consideration. We are interested in dynamic educators and researchers who use experimental, computational and/or field approaches in their research and can establish externally funded, internationally recognized research programs that involve graduate students. The field of specialization is open, but preference will be given to individuals who can offer a research and teaching program that complements and expands upon our existing strengths in solid Earth processes and climate science. See the rest of our website for more information about the Department’s strengths in geochemistry, geophysics, tectonics, and climate science. We also encourage interdisciplinary applicants who can bridge the gap between traditional Earth Science and planetary science, as well as applicants who can utilize other outstanding research facilities at the University, including the Laboratory for Laser Energetics and the Goergen Institute for Data Science.
