      Position Details


The Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of 
Washington invites applications for a tenure-track position in 
geobiology and sedimentary geology. Preferred research areas include, 
but are not limited to, biogeochemistry, paleontology and/or sedimentary 
geology, focusing on the use of pre-Quaternary stratigraphic records as 
a basis for investigation of the reciprocal interactions between the 
Earth (lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere), life and environments 
through time. We are particularly interested in individuals who pursue 
interdisciplinary research, can contribute to the study of sedimentary 
rocks, use innovative geochemical, biological and/or computing 
techniques in their research and who can utilize these in their 
teaching. A proven ability to incorporate fieldwork into teaching and 
research will be advantageous. The successful applicant will be able to 
contribute to core undergraduate teaching in the fields of geobiology 
and Earth history, as well as teach more advanced classes in sedimentary 
geology and stratigraphy. Opportunities for collaboration exist with 
departmental research groups in isotopic geochemistry, Quaternary 
studies and surface processes, the Burke Museum, Program on Climate 
Change, Astrobiology Program, the Departments of Atmospheric Sciences 
and Biology, and the Schools of Oceanography and Environmental and 
Forest Sciences.

The College of the Environment seeks to attract and promote a diverse 
workforce to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer 
students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and 
learning. Willingness to work collaboratively with faculty and to mentor 
students from a wide range of disciplines, cultures and academic 
backgrounds is essential.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree (or foreign equivalent) in a 
relevant field by the start of the appointment and will be expected to 
participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching, independent 
research, and service. The College of the Environment and the Department 
of Earth and Space Science offers a range of networking, mentoring and 
professional development opportunities for junior faculty. Appointment 
is expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level. This is a 
full-time appointment with a 9-month service period.

Applicants should send curriculum vitae, bibliography, description of 
research and teaching interests, diversity/inclusion experience, and the 
names of four references to Geobiology Search Committee c/o April Huff. 
Electronic materials are preferred and may be sent toessasst at uw.edu 
<mailto:essasst at uw.edu>. Hard copies can be mailed to: April Huff, 
Department of Earth and Space Sciences, University of Washington, Box 
351310, Seattle, WA 98195-1310. Preference will be given to applications 
received prior to January 6, 2015.
