The University of Oklahoma invites applications for a tenure-track position in Geophysics at the rank of Assistant Professor. The school has a strong seismic program and is looking for a faculty member to broaden the scope of the program in non-seismic methods.  We seek a dynamic colleague who will teach and supervise students at all levels, while conducting an independent, externally funded research program in his/her field of expertise.

The candidate should hold a Ph.D., have a demonstrated research record, and an interest in teaching undergraduates and mentoring graduate students.  Potential areas of interest include gravity, magnetics, electromagnetics, and GPS applied to crustal processes.  Salary, benefits, and start-up funds will be competitive and commensurate with experience. The ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics has a large, vibrant faculty with a broad range of research activities and strong ties to the petroleum industry. The student body currently includes 182 undergraduates and 110 MS and PhD students. The Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy possesses extensive software and computing labs with PC and Linux platforms networked to our own dedicated cluster within the OU supercomputer center (OSCER). The College hosts numerous industrial consortia, a research institute focused on seismic monitoring, and a field campus in Colorado for field courses in geology and geophysics.  The geophysics group conducts active research projects that are funded by industry as well as by U.S. and foreign government agencies and institutes. The College maintains a comprehensive pool of geophysical equipment including GPR, seismic (active and passive), magnetic, and gravity instruments as well as extensive rock physics characterization laboratories. Through collaboration with industry, we have a suite of 3D seismic and microseismic data volumes that are used for teaching, algorithm calibration, seismic geomorphological analysis, crustal imaging, and a range of open source software for lithospheric-scale research.  Information about the School and College, the facilities and the entities that it houses can be found at http:/geology.ou.edu.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2014, and on-campus interviews will start early in 2015. The search will continue until the position is filled.  The anticipated starting date is August 15, 2015.  Applicants are requested to submit a complete vita/resume, statement of research and teaching interests, and a list of five references who can be contacted, including phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and mailing addresses. Questions or information requests may be addressed to Chair of the Geophysics Search Committee, at (405) 325-3253, or ougeophysicssearchchair at ou.edu. Applications and nominations should be addressed to Geophysics Search Committee, University of Oklahoma, Sarkeys Energy Center, 100 E. Boyd Street, Room 710, Norman, OK  73019-1008.
