MGS Seeks an Environmental Geoscientist

The Department of Marine Geosciences (MGS) at the Rosenstiel School of 
Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), University of Miami (UM), seeks 
outstanding candidates for tenure track positions at either the 
assistant or associate professor level. We are seeking to hire into two 
areas, as follows.

First, geodesy, geodynamics and geophysics. We are interested in 
candidates accomplished (1) in measuring or modelling of sea level 
changes, a field of direct relevance to Miami, or (2) in the wide field 
of active geological processes and hazards. Teaching ability in 
numerical modelling methods, hydrogeology, petrology or structural 
geology will be viewed favorably. The successful candidate is encouraged 
to interact with the Geodesy and Seismology group and/or the Center of 
Computational Sciences. We encourage applications from candidates using 
NASA’s forthcoming Earth Observation missions (including cryosphere).

For the second position we seek a candidate researching the geological 
evolution of the global carbon cycle and past climate. Central to this 
discipline is analysis of the interaction between the carbon cycle and 
other critical elemental systems, such as sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen, and 
key nutrients. Teaching ability in the themes of Earth materials, 
environmental geochemistry, and geobiology will be viewed favorably. The 
University of Miami offers a unique tropical location and the 
opportunity to integrate biological and physical oceanographic expertise 
into process-oriented geological research through collaboration with 
faculty in the Departments of Marine Biology and Ecology and Ocean 
Sciences. The successful candidate is encouraged to interact with 
current faculty in the Comparative Sedimentology Laboratory, a center 
with a long tradition of excellence in research and training in 
carbonate sedimentology which hosts a vibrant student population.

Candidates for these positions will be expected to develop vigorous, 
externally funded research programs, supervise students, and participate 
in the teaching mission of the Department and the School at both the 
graduate and undergraduate levels.
Questions should be directed to Sam Purkis, Chair of the Department of 
Marine Geosciences (spurkis at rsmas.miami.edu) and applications should be 
made to the Chair of the Search Committee, Guoqing Lin 
(glin at rsmas.miami.edu). Applications will only be accepted 
electronically. The positions will remain open until filled.

The University of Miami is an equal opportunity employer.
