> The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University in
> Philadelphia is entering a period of
> growth with a newly launched Ph.D. program. To achieve this growth, the
> department seeks to fill two tenure-track
> faculty positions to begin in August 2015. One of the positions will be in
> the
> area of REMOTE SENSING. A second position will be in the area of
> GEOMATERIALS. Exceptional
> candidates holding a Ph.D. are encouraged to apply at any level
> associate, or full
> professor). Mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students and
> securing external funding are expected. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a
> relevant science discipline.
> SENSING: We especially encourage applicants with a focus on the analysis
> Earth using airborne or satellite remote sensing platforms, expertise in
> digital signal processing for geoscience applications, and
> the use satellite data for understanding climate change. This appointment
> will
> complement existing expertise in geophysics, hydrogeology, structural
> geology,
> geomorphology, and planetary geology, and make use of the new
> high-performance
> computing cluster. Applicants should be able to teach undergraduate and
> graduate courses including Remote Sensing and Physical Geology.
> Of particular interest are applicants with a focus on energy as well as
> science, and with expertise in mineralogy and petrology that crossover to
> material science. The candidate should investigate crystalline, glassy, or
> melt
> geomaterials with a goal of understanding the atomic-scale characteristics
> that
> lead to macroscopic properties in earth sciences. The individual is
> to
> use a combination of field or experimental based data collection and
> approaches. This appointment will complement existing expertise on the
> properties of nano-minerals and geochemistry within EES as well as
> research conducted through super-computing, engineering, chemistry, and
> physics
> utilizing a variety of in place instrumentation and the newly formed
> University Energy Frontier Research Center. Applicants should be able to
> teach
> undergraduate and graduate courses including Mineralogy and Petrology.
> Applications
