TWO ASSISTANT PROFESSOR POSITIONS IN GEOPHYSICS
CONOCOPHILLIPS SCHOOL OF GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICS
THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA
The University of Oklahoma invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Geophysics at the Assistant Professor rank. One position is in General Geophysics and the second in Applied Geophysics. We seek dynamic colleagues who will teach and supervise geophysics students at all levels, while conducting an aggressive, independent, externally funded research in their field of expertise. The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D., have a demonstrated research record, and an interest in teaching undergraduates and mentoring graduate students.
The General Geophysics applicant should have research interest in fundamental geophysics endeavors that include, but not limited to, geodynamics, potential fields, geodesy, numerical modeling, geomechanics or seismology.
The Applied Geophysics applicant should have research interest in collection of geophysical data and the interpretation of the subsurface for energy, groundwater, mineral, and geothermal exploration. Interest in reservoir characterization and industry experience are also welcome.
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 includes about 200 undergraduates and more than 100 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 multiple, externally funded, research, and 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 can be found at mcee.ou.edu.
Review of applications will begin September 30, 2015, and on-campus interviews will start later 2015. The search will continue until the position is filled. The preferred starting date is January 15, 2016, with optional starting date of August 15, 2016. Applicants can apply online at jobs.ou.edu<file:///C:\Users\Reches\Documents\Files\G&G\2015_16%20search%20Geophysics\jobs.ou.edu> and search listings for the requisition number: 23147 for General Geophysics or 23148 for Applied Geophysics. Applicants should 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 Geophysics Search, at (405) 325-3253, or ougeophysicssearchchair at ou.edu.
