*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
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.
