Assistant Professor Position in Geophysics. The School of Geosciences at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Geophysics to begin August 2014.

The School of Geosciences combines the programs of Geology (B.S. and M.S. degree programs) and Environmental Sciences (B.S.) and includes 13 full-time faculty members, including three instructors, approximately 150 undergraduate majors and 66 graduate students. There are many opportunities for collaboration within other departments, as well as with the petroleum industry, and campus institutes, and centers.

The purpose of this hire is to build strength in the areas of petroleum geology and/or environmental geology and to support a new interdisciplinary Ph.D. program that may be created in partnership with the department of Physics. The successful candidate will be expected to teach at least one upper-level course targeting Physics majors (this can be offered jointly with Geology). We envision an approximate 70% effort in Geology and a 30% effort in Physics. Responsibilities include teaching, research, and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate level. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent, externally-funded research program and be able to translate their research interests into applied aspects of Gulf Coast geology and exploration geophysics. Expertise in modeling and GIS and/or 3D visualization will be advantageous. A Ph.D. in the area of interest is required at the time of hire, but postdoctoral experience is preferred.

The review process will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, receipt of the complete application material is required before November 25, 2013.
