The Indiana University Bloomington Department of Earth & Atmospheric Scienceshttps://earth.indiana.edu/index.html invites applications for one or more tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor positions to begin in fall of 2023. We welcome applications that complement our research strengths in climate change, critical zone science, or evolving crust, especially in the areas of Earth materials, hydrology, paleoclimate, or biogeochemistry. Specific subdisciplines could include but are not limited to mineralogy/petrology, clay mineralogy, hydrogeology, crustal fluids, isotopic proxies of climate change, soils, or nutrient cycling. Candidates who bridge these and other areas of Earth Sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. Ph.D. is required at time of appointment.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of our departmenthttps://earth.indiana.edu/about/diversity.html and of the College of Arts & Scienceshttps://college.indiana.edu/, and we are especially interested in candidates who are similarly committed to nurturing diversity and inclusion, sustaining a climate of mutual respect, and fostering a collaborative and supportive academic environment wherein everyone is empowered to succeed.
Faculty in the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) have access to laboratory facilitieshttps://earth.indiana.edu/research/research-labs-and-centers/index.html including the Stable Isotope Research Facilityhttps://earth.indiana.edu/research/research-labs-and-centers/sirf-lab/index.html, Metal Isotopes Labhttps://metals.earth.indiana.edu/, high resolution SEM, and clay mineralogy, petrology, and paleontology research collections—with opportunities for these facilities to grow to fit the needs of incoming faculty. All faculty at Indiana University (IU) have free and easy access to multiple high performance computing systemshttps://uits.iu.edu/services/technology-for-research/high-performance-computing-and-storage,including Big Red 200https://kb.iu.edu/d/brcc?_gl=1*k0wyu5*_ga*MTc2NjkxNzcyOS4xNjU1NzM5MTU0*_ga_61CH0D2DQW*MTY2MTEwMzU2OC43LjAuMTY2MTEwMzU2OC42MC4wLjA.#overview, that support advanced research in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics. Our department has a long history of teaching and research at the Judson Mead Geologic Field Stationhttps://iugfs.indiana.edu/about/index.html training early career geoscientists in field research.
IU is committed to helping its faculty successfully grow their careers. Incoming faculty have access to a year-long series of orientation programshttps://vpfaa.indiana.edu/faculty-resources/new-faculty-orientation.html. All faculty at IU are encouraged to better support student success by engaging with the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learninghttps://citl.indiana.edu/. And all faculty have access to Proposal Development Serviceshttps://research.iu.edu/funding-proposals/proposals/index.html, which is staffed by Ph.D. researchers with track records of success in obtaining external funding, for in-depth support in the proposal writing process.

The Papers in Press page of the American Mineralogist -- http://www.minsocam.org/MSA/Ammin/AM_Preprints.html -- is the first place accepted papers are published. This is the Author's Accepted Manuscript (AAM) and after acceptance, as soon as possible, this is posted. This site is available to all researchers and readers. This site free. The goal is fast -- all copyediting, layout, and so on is done for the final publication. Best of all, this paper has a DOI that will repoint to the final version when that is published.
Authors could "opt out", we are very respectful of author choice, but it is far better in general to have your science available while waiting for final publication.
Right now check out among many many papers:
Behavior of hydrogen defect and framework of Fe-bearing wadsleyite and ringwoodite at high temperature and high pressure Yang Jin, Weihua Huang, ZhongPing Wang, Wei Sun, Yan Liu, Qunke Xia, and Yan Yang 10.2138/am-2022-8544
CO2 quantification in silicate glasses using μ-ATR FTIR spectroscopy Maximilian Schanofski, Lennart Koch, and Burkhard C. Schmidt 10.2138/am-2022-8477
Enjoy the Papers in Press, the first publication of more excellent science.
