*Research faculty position in seismology*

TheGeophysical Institute <http://www.gi.alaska.edu/>(GI) at the 
University of Alaska Fairbanks is hiring a new seismology faculty member 
at the rank of Research Assistant Professor or Research Associate 
Professor. We seek a scientist interested in building a long-term 
research program that leverages the extensive facilities and personnel 
of theSeismology Lab <http://www.gi.alaska.edu/research/seismo>and GI. 
We value an ability to work collaboratively with other faculty and a 
motivation to help lead our long-recognized graduate student program. To 
foster these connections, the new hire will work with theAlaska 
Earthquake Information Center <http://www.aeic.alaska.edu/>and/or 
theAlaska Volcano Observatory <http://www.avo.alaska.edu/>. These 
affiliations, together with core university funding, are expected to 
provide approximately eight months of support annually for this 
twelve-month position. After an initial startup period, the new hire 
will be expected to raise additional support through external grants and 
contracts of their own.

We invite candidates from a wide range of seismology backgrounds. 
Candidates should have broad research interests with applications in 
regional tectonic settings and/or volcanoes. Applicants are encouraged 
to address this in their statement of research. Candidates will be 
evaluated, in part, on their ability to capitalize on the diverse assets 
of the Geophysical Institute and on the scientific opportunities 
afforded by the active tectonic environment of Alaska.

The new hire will join a dynamic group of two dozen faculty, postdocs, 
staff and students dedicated to advancing the field of seismology. Our 
research targets earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, glaciers and 
tectonics in Alaska and around the world. We track earthquake and 
volcanic activity across Alaska in partnerships with federal and state 
agencies. The Seismology Lab houses the Alaska Earthquake Information 
Center and is a core component of the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The 
tremendous rates of tectonic and volcanic activity make Alaska an 
unparalleled laboratory for seismology. We apply this real world 
experience to research projects with global implications. Current 
emphasis on Alaska from the EarthScope and GeoPRISMS programs make this 
a particularly exciting time. Abundant seismoacoustic research 
opportunities also exist through collaboration with the GI-based Wilson 
Infrasound Observatories.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks values diversity among its students, 
staff, and faculty. We encourage applications from women, members of 
minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the 
university's research, teaching and service missions.

review will start on August 1, 2013. Refer questions to Doug Christensen
