Assistant Professor Positions (2): Near-surface and Solid Earth Imaging; Hydrology and the Environment

Syracuse University

Last Updated: 10/13/21

Job Description

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Syracuse University (https://thecollege.syr.edu/earth-sciences-department) currently has 18 full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty with research strengths in the solid Earth studies, hydrology, geochemistry, and paleoclimatology. The Department has an outstanding array of analytical and computational facilities and recently renovated laboratories. We seek applicants for two tenure-track assistant professor positions:

  • Assistant Professor, Near-surface and Solid Earth Imaging

The Department solicits applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the broad field of seismic subsurface imaging. This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Energy and Environment. Faculty hired into these positions will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments across several Colleges. The Department welcomes applicants with expertise in deployment of seismic instrumentation, and collection and analysis of both active- and passive-source seismic data sets. The ideal candidate will collaborate across traditional disciplinary boundaries within the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the greater SU community, which includes expertise in energy, sustainability, and water resources. Candidates who can apply seismology to broad fields such as carbon capture, utilization, and storage, and near-surface geophysics are especially encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will establish a strong externally funded research program from diverse funding sources and develop a portfolio of excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants are expected to teach a large, introductory-level class in Earth Science, contribute to existing courses in geohazards and geophysics and develop new undergraduate and graduate courses in seismology and subsurface imaging. For priority consideration, apply by November 1, 2021: https://www.sujobopps.com/postings/89103

  • Assistant Professor, Hydrology and the Environment

The Department solicits applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the field of Hydrology, jointly hosted in the Departments of Earth and Environmental Sciences (75%) and Civil and Environmental Engineering (25%). Faculty hired into this position will build on our existing strengths in water, energy, and climate, and will participate in the Energy and Environment cluster initiative that spans multiple departments in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, the College of Architecture, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. The successful applicant will have research expertise in the broad field of hydrology. We seek an outstanding scholar with demonstrated excellence in research and teaching in any aspect of freshwater systems. We are flexible with regard to areas of specialization, though examples of fields that are of particular interest include: surface water hydrology, computational hydrology, hydrological and biogeochemical modeling, ecohydrology, coastal hydrology, and water within coupled human and natural systems. The ideal candidate’s work will be transdisciplinary in nature and be able to support ongoing initiatives at the Department, College, and University levels. The successful applicant will establish a strong, externally funded research program from diverse funding sources and develop a portfolio of excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants will contribute to the existing curriculum in hydrology and hydrogeology and develop new undergraduate and graduate courses.
