*Professor in Geophysics, Department of Geosciences, Boise State University*

The Department of Geosciences at Boise State University invites
applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the broad field of
Geophysics beginning in Fall 2018. We encourage applications from
individuals with strengths that complement existing and emerging research
areas, and who can collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.The
Geophysics Group in the Department of Geosciences has internationally
recognized research programs in seismology, hydrogeophysics, near-surface
geophysics, snow-and-ice science, and volcanology. Emerging research areas
of particular interest include, but are not limited to, marine geology and
geophysics, geodynamics, and climate science. A successful candidate will
articulate a vision of active collaboration with researchers in the
geophysics, Earth surface dynamics, and solid Earth geology groups in the
Geoscience Department, as well as in the broader research communities at
Boise State, nationally, and internationally. We seek a dynamic candidate
who will develop and maintain an externally funded research program, mentor
graduate students, and engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching using
evidence-based instructional practices. Boise State University is ideally
situated in the Northwest's third largest metropolitan area, and is a
vibrant city with substantial cultural and recreational opportunities.

Applicants must have a PhD in geophysics, or related fields such as applied
physics, applied mathematics, or engineering, and must have demonstrated
success in research. The position may be filled either at the assistant or
associate level depending upon experience. Applications from
underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. Review of candidates
will begin on *October 15 *and continue until the position is filled.
