completed at least a Master’s degree in geophysics or geosciences and have
at least four years of experience in the field of study with a demonstrated
research track record in Seismology. A recently awarded Ph.D. and one year
of postdoctoral research may be substituted in lieu of experience.

The Geophysicist III is an OU academic research position and will be
expected to carry out independent work in their area of specialization
