As part of an initiative in Geobiology, the School of Earth Sciences at
Stanford University seeks to make one or more tenure-line faculty
appointments of open rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) in
this area. We invite applications from persons with demonstrated
research records addressing fundamental questions at the intersection of
the biological and geological sciences who are also committed to
quality undergraduate and graduate teaching. The objective of the
Geobiology initiative is to advance fundamental understanding of the
co-evolution of Earth and life, with particular focus on addressing the
challenges that arise from the enormous range of temporal and spatial
scales involved. Areas of particular interest include, but are not
limited to, the study of the coupled histories of Earth and life using
data from paleontology, geochemistry, and sedimentary geology; the
evolution of biogeochemical cycling; the role of life in shaping the
geochemistry of the Earth’s crust over modern to geological time scales;
geochemical controls on biotic activity, diversity, and evolution;
biogenic mineral formation/dissolution; and life in extreme
environments. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum
vita, a statement outlining research and teaching interests that would
materially contribute to related programs in the School of Earth
Sciences, three representative papers published within the last 5 years
and the names and email addresses of three referees. Review of
applications will commence August 1, 2013. The position will remain open
until filled. Stanford University has a strong institutional commitment
to the principle of diversity. In that spirit, we particularly
encourage applications from women, members of ethnic minorities, and
individuals with disabilities. For more information about the School of
Earth Sciences, see the school's web page at http://pangea.stanford.edu/ [1].
