    Assistant Professor of Structural Geology (Tenure-Track)

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Louisiana State University 
(LSU) seeks an outstanding individual with expertise in the broad area 
of structural geology for appointment at the assistant professor level. 
The specific research area is open to all subdisciplines of structural 
geology. We seek an individual who can contribute to interdisciplinary 
research initiatives and has demonstrated strong observational, 
empirical and analytical skills. The Department and University strives 
to maintain a rich and diverse faculty group.

This tenure-track position is intended to complement our existing 
research strengths, such as Coastal Resilience and Near Surface 
Processes, Evolution of Sedimentary Basins, Earth Materials and 
Processes, Planetary Science, Climate and Tectonics, 
Tectonometamorphism, and Polar Studies. Research in this subdiscipline 
may also build strength in the LSU campus-wide research focus areas 
of_"Conventional and Renewable Energy"_(C&RE),_"Core Computing/High 
Performance Computing"_(CC/HPC),_"Materials Science and 
Engineering"_(MS&E) and_"Coastal Sustainability and Environment"_(CS&E).

*Qualifications:*a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences or a related field. The 
successful candidate should be in the process of developing an 
internationally recognized scientific reputation, and will be expected 
to maintain a high-level, externally funded research program, teach at 
the graduate and undergraduate level, possibly including field trips, 
mentor and support graduate students, publish in highly ranked journals, 
and provide leadership both on campus and beyond. Inquiries should be 
directed to the Structural Geology Search Committee, at 225-578-3353 
orgeology at lsu.edu <mailto:geology at lsu.edu>.

LSU is designated as a Carnegie Research I University and is one of a 
handful of distinguished universities to enjoy Land, Sea, and Space 
Grant status. The Department of Geology and Geophysics currently 
consists of 18 tenure-track faculty members having a wide range of 
geoscience expertise covering field, experimental, analytical and 
theoretical components. We offer degrees in geology and geophysics at 
the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. levels. The Department has a strong record of 
success in research and graduate training, synergistic interactions with 
other academic units at LSU, federal and industry-funded research and 
teaching programs, and a large and active alumni base. 
(Seehttp://geology.lsu.edu <http://geology.lsu.edu/>for more 
information.) Opportunities for a broad range of research interactions 
are available within the department and throughout the University. The 
department maintains a wide range of sample preparation and 
computational facilities, including seismic workstations and field 
seismic acquisition systems, and analytical facilities, including a new 
electron microprobe and other microanalytical capabilities within the 
Shared Instrumentation Facility 
(SIF:http://sites01.lsu.edu/faculty/sif/). The University actively 
promotes_interdisciplinary research
