Tenure Track Position in Petrology/Tectonics
The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Missouri-Columbia
invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor appointment in
high-temperature petrology as applied to tectonic problems. The appointment
will begin August 2002. Preference will be given to a broadly trained,
field-oriented metamorphic petrologist who has a keen understanding of the
fundamental methods in petrology, including mineral-phase equilibria,
geochronology, and structural analysis to address tectonic problems in the
areas of evolution of the Earthıs crust and mountain building processes.
Consideration will also be given to other petrology specialties that address
these broad tectonic problems. The successful applicant will complement
existing departmental programs in petrology, structural geology, tectonics,
and geodynamics. Information on the department can be found at
Completion of the Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. Applicants
should be prepared to prove eligibility to work in the United States. The
successful applicant will be expected to teach across the curriculum in our
department, including introductory classes, advanced undergraduate courses,
and graduate courses in their area of expertise. The applicant will also
develop an active, externally funded research program and will direct
graduate student research at the M.S. and Ph.D. levels. Candidates should
have a commitment to diversity in the academic environment.
Application materials should include a curriculum vita, a summary of
research interests, copies of important publications, a description of
teaching interests, and a list of three personal references with complete
addresses and e-mail information. Initial screening of applicants will begin
January 10, 2002 and will continue until a suitable candidate is hired.
