    Faculty Positions in Geosciences and
    in Environmental Sciences

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins 
University invites applications for multiple tenure-track or tenured 
faculty positions. The positions can be filled at the Assistant, 
Associate, or Full Professor level, starting as early as Fall 2016. The 
successful candidates are expected to develop internationally recognized 
and externally funded research programs, to help develop and participate 
in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and to supervise graduate 
student research. In the case of an appointment with tenure, the 
candidate must already be internationally recognized and have a 
demonstrated record of external research funding. A Ph.D. is required in 
the Earth Sciences or a related natural sciences discipline; 
post-doctoral experience is desirable.

Applicants are sought for two focus areas:

Geosciences including low-temperature geochemistry and studies of the 
early Earth, cosmochemistry, geophysics and geodynamics, volcanology and 
igneous petrology. We are particularly interested in candidates whose 
research has synergies with our recent hires with expertise in 
sedimentary, metamorphic and tectonic processes, planetary geology, and 
planetary atmospheres.

Environmental Sciences including: natural resources (including water, 
metals, soils, and energy), ecology, critical zone science, marine 
sciences, cryospheric sciences, geomorphology, landscape hydrology, 
environmental change, air pollution, and, biogeochemistry. We are 
particularly interested in candidates whose research has synergies with 
our program in Global Environmental Change and Sustainability.

Opportunities exist for the successful candidate to forge research and 
teaching ties with other parts of the Johns Hopkins community that are 
active in the earth and environmental sciences, and sustainability. They 
include multiple engineering departments, Environmental Health Sciences 
at the School of Public Health, the Applied Physics Laboratory, and the 
cross-departmental Environment, Energy, Sustainability, and Health 
Institute. There are excellent opportunities for additional 
collaborations within the Baltimore-Washington region, including with 
the Carnegie Institution, the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. 
Geological Survey, the University of Maryland, and NASA Goddard Space 
Flight Center.

Applications must be submitted electronically using 
Interfoliohttp://apply.interfolio.com/34960, should indicate the
