Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Marine Geological Processes – University of Washington

The University of Washington School of Oceanography seeks applications for two full-time, 9-month faculty positions at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor in the broad fields of Marine Geological Processes and Biological Oceanography. The anticipated start date of the positions is September 16, 2024. Review for both the Marine Geological Processes position and the Biological Oceanography position will begin on December 1, 2023. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.

The Marine Geological Processes position will specialize in the study of geological processes in the ocean. The successful candidate will be expected to expand the School of Oceanography’s research and teaching efforts in marine geology and geophysics, contributing to an improved understanding of tectonic, sedimentary, and/or geochemical cycles. Subspecialty expertise could fall within a wide range of areas, including but not limited to earthquake seismology, geophysical imaging, geochemistry, geohazards, geomorphology, hydrogeology, hydrothermal and seep processes, seafloor geodesy, and sedimentology/stratigraphy. We welcome the full range of approaches, from field observations and data analysis to laboratory or numerical simulations and theoretical modeling.

The University of Washington School of Oceanography is highly multidisciplinary and promotes a collegial culture with broad interdisciplinary research ties throughout the School and across the UW campus. UW faculty are expected to engage in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidates for these positions will develop new or expanded areas of expertise within the School of Oceanography and collaborate with colleagues within the School and across the University. The candidates will be expected to contribute to the teaching mission of the School, including teaching across different topics, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. In all aspects of the positions, the candidates will be expected to promote a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for students, faculty, staff, and the public.
