We encourage applicants who will pursue novel applications of isotope geochemistry to problems in Earth and environmental science, especially those that capitalize on Hawaii's unique environment. An interest in methodological innovation is also desirable. The new hire will have the expertise to utilize and contribute to the operation of existing MC-ICP-MS and TIMS instruments and associated clean laboratory. Opportunities for collaborative isotope research across SOEST include volcanology, mantle geochemistry, biogeochemistry, cosmochemistry, environmental sciences, ecology, Earth history, marine geochemistry and oceanography.
The successful candidate will demonstrate the capability for innovative, high quality research, and for effective teaching and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. They are expected to develop and sustain an outstanding research program and contribute to the department's educational mission. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geology and geophysics or other relevant disciplines received no later than appointment date. Informal inquiries should be directed to the Geochemistry Search Committee Chair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new faculty hire will have full access to radiogenic/non-traditional isotope geochemistry facilities at UHM. These include the SOEST Isotope Laboratory and the which includes a Nu Instruments MC-ICP-MS facility. Presently these facilities conduct multi- and trans-disciplinary research in volcanology, coastal studies, fisheries, paleoceanography, igneous petrology, biogeochemistry, environmental science, mantle geochemistry, and anthropology. The SOEST Isotope Laboratory includes two TIMS instruments which are used for analyses of Sr, Nd and Pb isotope ratios and for U-series isotope analyses. Sample preparation for isotope analyses is performed in clean labs associated with the SOEST Isotope Laboratory. The MC-ICP-MS facility is currently used for Th, U, Pb, Li isotope and trace metal isotope dilution analyses, but is well suited to a variety of other isotope ratio measurements. For additional information about the laboratories, contact Ken Rubin, email@example.com )
How To Apply
To apply, submit (a) a cover letter, (b) a curriculum vitae which includes a summary of educational background, previous research and teaching experience, and a list of publications and research funding, (c) a statement of current and future research and teaching interests, and (d) the contact information (postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses) for at least three references and official transcripts (copies are acceptable with applications, originals are required upon hire).
Applicants are encouraged to include in their research statement, plans for possible collaborative research with G&G, SOEST and other university faculty. The cover letter should be addressed to the Geochemistry Search Committee. To view the University of Hawaii job description of the vacancy announcement, please visit WORKATUH.HAWAII.EDU.
