The Department invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position focusing on fluids in the lithosphere, at the Assistant Professor level, to begin July 2015.

We seek a scientist with expertise in areas such as the behavior of fluids at high pressure and temperature, flow of highly viscous materials, and fluid-mediated transfer of mass and energy. Areas of interest include fluid cycling in orogenic systems; detection of crustal fluid motions by geophysical or remote-sensing techniques; links between seismology, rock deformation, and fluid flow; and fluids in volcanic and geothermal systems. Expertise in geochemical analysis, computer modeling, or experimental approaches is highly desirable. The successful applicant will be expected to maintain a dynamic, externally funded research program, and to teach and advise students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. at the time of appointment, and postdoctoral and teaching experience is highly desirable.

Applicants must submit a letter of application, statements of research and teaching interests, vita, and contact information (names, addresses, email, and phone numbers) of four references on-line at Review of applications will begin on December 22, 2014 and will continue until the position is filled.
