Application URL: https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/97932
For full consideration apply by 4/30/2021, applications close 6/30/2021
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) invites applications for a tenure-track (Assistant/Associate/Full Professor) faculty position to fill the newly created Barrow Family Endowed Chair in Mineral Resource Geology. Areas of research focus could be rooted in field-and laboratory-based investigations of ore genesis, evolution, and exploration. Specific areas of interest include the role of fluids in crustal processes, structural and tectonic controls on magma and fluid flow, magmatic and hydrothermal processes that determine the concentration and dispersion of mineralized materials, geothermal or active magmatic or metamorphic systems, or related fields. Research strategies should integrate field mapping and investigations with petrology, structural geology, remote-sensing, high-temperature and isotope geochemistry, and/or other lab-based or modelling approaches.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated capabilities in-, and high potential for, teaching and research excellence that will inspire the next generation of Geology undergraduate and graduate students. They will contribute to teaching undergraduate courses such as mineralogy, petrology-petrography-optical mineralogy, and field geology, as well as graduate courses in their specialty. Strong preference will be given to early or mid-career individuals with a demonstrated capacity to develop or sustain a vibrant, externally-funded research program that will maintain our international reputation in Mineral Resources Geology, robust connections with industry partners, and a tradition of creative research and teaching in Geology and Geophysics and cognate fields.
For academic-track positions, it is CEOAS policy to hire as a 12-month, 0.75 FTE (equivalent to the traditional 9-month, 1.0 FTE) and confer indefinite tenure when promoted to Associate Professor.
OSU maintains an institution-wide commitment to diversity, multi-culturalism, and community, and seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and student body that includes members of historically under-represented groups. We strive to build and sustain a welcoming and supportive campus environment.
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is an internationally recognized leader in the study of the Earth as an integrated system. It operates numerous state-of-the art laboratories and two oceanographic research vessels, the 177-foot ocean-going Oceanus, and the 54-foot coastal research vessel Elakha. The College has an annual research expenditure budget of more than $80 million, with support coming from the National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Department of Energy, and other federal agencies. It has approximately 100 faculty, 200 graduate students and 800 undergraduate students. Graduate programs include M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; Geology; and Geography and a M.S. degree in Marine Resource Management. The college has undergraduate programs in Earth Sciences (oceanography, climate science, geology), Geography and Geospatial sciences, and Environmental Sciences, with several minors and certificate programs
