The University of Oklahoma (Norman campus) invites applications for a tenure-track position in
organic geochemistry at the level of Assistant Professor. The ConocoPhillips School of Geology and
Geophysics has a distinguished history in organic geochemistry. We seek an individual who will
complement our existing strengths in the geochemical study of organic matter, and who will help us
move forward into new and exciting areas of research.
The ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics is housed in the Sarkeys Energy Center. Our
research facilities, which are detailed at www.ou.edu/content/mcee/geology/Research.html, include
extensive laboratory capabilities in mass spectrometry of carbon compounds and bulk and
compound-specific stable isotopic analysis. As the chemistry of carbon figures prominently in
research campus-wide, this position in organic geochemistry fills a prominent role with many avenues
for collaboration with faculty within and outside of the School.
