Assistant Professor of Geology
Open Until Filled: Yes
Job Summary: The Department of Geology at the University of Georgia seeks to fill a position for a tenure-track assistant professor in the field of petrology/mineralogy, welcoming applications from scientists in both the Earth and Planetary sciences to complement the department's growing focus in planetary sciences. We encourage applications from petrologists/mineralogists with strong backgrounds in chemistry and physics who may employ unconventional and interdisciplinary approaches to address big-picture questions including but not limited to petrologic and/or mineralogical aspects of planetary evolution involving core, mantle, and/or crustal processes. The successful candidate must be comfortable teaching our undergraduate core curriculum classes in mineralogy and/or petrology, a graduate course in their specialty, as well as introductory courses in geology. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an externally funded research program to attract outstanding graduate students in their field, and our core electron microprobe facility with dedicated, long-standing technical support may be critical to that effort.
