*Geobiology faculty search at Stanford University*

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/. PLEASE NOTE: all application
