The Department of Geosciences at The Pennsylvania State University invites
applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant
Professor, in the fields of Hydrogeology and Geomorphology. We seek
colleagues who will continue strong legacies in hydrologic sciences and
geomorphology, contribute to highly active and diverse research programs in
the Department and College through the development of vigorous externally
funded research programs, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in
their discipline. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geosciences or related
field at the time of appointment.

Assistant Professor of Hydrogeology: Candidates who creatively use
theoretical, observational, and/or experimental approaches to address
fundamental problems in hydrosciences are encouraged to apply. The
successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in several
campus-wide initiatives in water resources through the Penn State Institute
for Energy and the Environment (http://www.psiee.psu.edu) and the Earth and
Environmental Systems Institute (http://www.eesi.psu.edu).

Assistant Professor of Geomorphology and Landscape Dynamics: We are seeking
candidates who conduct innovative research on landscape dynamics at a range
of temporal and spatial scales in order to understand, for example, natural
hazards, the evolution of Earth and planetary surfaces, and/or feedbacks
between surface processes, climate, and tectonics.

The Department of Geosciences is part of the College of Earth and Mineral
Sciences, and houses top-ranked research programs in environmental and
climate sciences, geology, geophysics, and geochemistry (further information
is available at: http://www.geosc.psu.edu).  The Department and College also
host research centers with foci on climate, environment, energy, and policy,
including the Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory; the Earth System
Science Center; the Penn State Ice and Climate Research Center; the Riparia
Center; and the Center for Geomechanics, Geofluids, and Geohazards.  There
are wide-ranging opportunities for collaboration in research and education
in the College?s Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering and Energy
Institute, and in departments within the Colleges of Engineering and
Agricultural Sciences.

Candidates should send a complete curriculum vita, statements of research
and teaching interests, and contact information for four references to:
Search Committee Chair (please specify Hydrogeology or Geomorphology), 503
Deike Building, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
16802; application materials can also be sent electronically to:
slg9 at psu.edu.  Appointment could begin as early as July 1, 2014. Review of
