Tenure-Track Faculty in Lithosphere Dynamics

The Department of Geological Sciences in the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking a dynamic faculty member at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level in the broad field of Lithosphere Dynamics. We seek a researcher-educator who will complement existing strengths in tectonics and structural geology, petrology and geochemistry, and geophysics. Individuals who bridge any or all of these disciplines are encouraged to apply. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to): igneous and metamorphic processes in Earth’s crust and lithospheric mantle; active tectonics and the interplay between surface processes, tectonics, and climate; experimental rock mechanics and its extrapolation to transient and long-term crustal and mantle deformation; and seismology and geodesy applied to understanding the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere.

As part of the Jackson School of Geosciences, the Department of Geological Sciences has over 50 faculty and a community of research staff with a broad range of specialization and access to outstanding research facilities and support.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and contact information for at least three references.  Submit electronic copies of these materials online at For questions related to the search, please contact Review of applications will begin January 10, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
