FACULTY POSITION AT SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY, UC SAN DIEGO
Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UC San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invites applications for the position listed below. We seek a motivated, broad-thinking scientist/educator to establish a vigorous research program and provide intellectual leadership in their field while complementing existing expertise at Scripps and other UCSD departments. SIO is a world-renowned center of solid earth, oceanographic, biological, and atmospheric research with approximately 200 principal investigators leading research programs. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The department is interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to inclusive excellence by providing leadership in teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
Low-Temperature Geochemistry: We seek outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in low-temperature geochemistry. We are interested in candidates who will build a program of laboratory and field studies of international standing in low-temperature geochemical applications which strengthen the research portfolio of SIO and UC San Diego. The potential for academic excellence, rather than research area, will be the principal criterion for selection. Appropriate areas for specialization could span a wide range of surficial processes in the marine and terrestrial environments. The candidate's area of research could include but is not limited to: sediment geochemistry, fluid geochemistry, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, geochronology, fluid-rock interaction, low-temperature geochemical cycles, trace-element geochemistry, geochemical proxy development, or surficial inorganic geochemical process in the cryosphere, weathering systems, anthropological contexts, and the fossil record.
Ph.D., or equivalent degree, in a relevant field is required at the time of application. Strong potential for development of a vigorous, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program and associated scholarly impact, together with excellent teaching, mentoring, and advising within the SIO undergraduate and graduate programs, evidence of service and broader contributions to diversity, leadership activities, and other items that will contribute positively to departmental welfare are preferred.
