The Geophysical Institute (GI) and Department of Geosciences at the
University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) are seeking a new, tenure-track
volcano seismology faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate
Professor. The successful applicant will work as part of the Alaska Volcano
Observatory (AVO) and will help with the modernization of AVO’s seismic
network and associated research and processing. The new hire will split
time between teaching and research, with 1/4 time teaching (3-4 credits per
9 month academic year) and 3/4 research. The new faculty member will also
support UAF’s service and outreach mission. After an initial startup
period, the new hire will be expected to raise additional research support
from external grant agencies apart from AVO by leading and collaborating on
proposals for innovative new research.

We invite candidates with a PhD in volcano seismology or related field.
Candidates should have a keen interest in research and monitoring volcanoes
in Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, and working closely with AVO partners
at the state and federal level. Alaska is home to over 54 historically
active volcanoes, with an average of over two eruptions per year that are
in part monitored by over 200 AVO seismic stations. Abundant research and
collaborative opportunities exist at the GI, with the Alaska Earthquake
Center and the Wilson Alaska Technical Center and research groups in other
areas of earth, atmospheric, and space sciences. Teaching will be at the
graduate and undergraduate level, and the successful applicant will be
expected to advise graduate students.
