Building upon its strengths in hydrology and geophysics, we invite applicants for this full-time position in Shallow Earth Geophysics. The new hire will have expertise in geophysical field methods as applied to hydrology, hydrogeophysics, geothermal and/or hydrothermal processes. Additional interest in geomorphology, coastal processes, or geologic hazards would be regarded favorably; initiatives in those areas would allow an applicant to further capitalize on opportunities in Hawaii. Areas of exertise could include potential fields, electrical and/or magnetic methods, radar, LiDAR, and seismology. The full range of platform technologies will be considered: land, sea, air, and space-mounted. The new hire will join an entrepreneurial research group with international recognition in geology, geophysics, and geochemistry.
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 Geophysics Search Committee Chair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage applicants who will pursue novel applications to problems in Earth and environmental science, especially those that pertain to Hawaii's unique setting. Many opportunities exist for collaboration in various research fields represented within G&G and in SOEST, including the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics & Planetology and the Dept. of Oceanography, such as hydrology, marine geology and geophysics, geodynamics, sedimentary geology, volcanology, engineering geology, and structural geology. Additional collaborative opportunities are present with faculty in other units at UH including the Water Resources Research Center, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Geography Department.
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 Geophysics Search Committee. To view the University of Hawaii job description of the vacancy announcement, please visit (link) WORKATUH.HAWAII.EDU.
