Thu Nov 3 21:36:55 MDT 2016
Assistant/Associate Professor JOB# 11789
School of Earth and Space Exploration and School of Molecular Sciences,
Arizona State University
The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) and the School of
Molecular Sciences (SMS) at Arizona State University invite applications
for a jointly-appointed, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor with
expertise in Isotope Geochemistry, with an anticipated start date of August
2017. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with experience. We seek
applications from diverse candidates with expertise in state-of-the-art
applications of radiogenic isotope or light stable isotope geochemistry. We
especially encourage applicants who: 1) employ analytical isotope
geochemistry to study the tempo and dynamics of chemical, physical, or
biological processes on Earth and elsewhere in our solar system; 2) have
interests in the development of novel analytical protocols and
instrumentation; 3) are enthusiastic about collaborative research spanning
traditional disciplinary boundaries; and 4) complement ASU’s existing
strengths in geochemistry.
The successful candidate will explore problems at the leading edge of their
field, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, conduct research
publishable in top-tier journals, and participate in service to the
institution and profession as appropriate.
SESE and SMS have a long history of synergistic research and
interdisciplinarity that has resulted in many successful joint faculty
appointments. Together, SESE and SMS set the stage for a new era of
scientific exploration. SESE brings together all of Earth and space science
in one school, combining the strengths of science, engineering, and
education to investigate the biggest questions of our time. SMS transcends
traditional boundaries of chemistry and biochemistry to conduct
solutions-oriented research and train a new generation of molecular
scientists. SESE and SMS faculty benefit from a variety of state-of-the-art
facilities on the Tempe AZ campus including: new clean laboratories and
instrumentation space, and centers of excellence in geochronology, aqueous
and environmental geochemistry, and non-traditional isotope geochemistry.
Both the SESE and SMS communities benefit from access to ASU’s Secondary
Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS/NanoSIMS) facilities, and world-class microbeam
instrumentation in ASU’s LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid-State Science.
· Ph.D. in a relevant discipline by the time of appointment
· Experience in isotope geochemistry commensurate with rank
· Demonstrated potential to establish a vigorous, externally-funded
research program with national and international impact
· Evidence of scholarly contributions in isotope geochemistry commensurate
· A commitment to quality teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
· Research expertise as noted above
· Demonstrated success meeting the educational needs of diverse student
populations and/or engaging in scientific outreach to diverse communities.
