The Stanford University School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences (Stanford Earth) seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. Consistent with Stanford University’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEAL) vision and commitment to diversity (broadly defined) among its faculty, students, and staff, we especially seek to attract applications from promising scholars with historically underrepresented backgrounds in traditional STEM fields, as well as in emerging areas of Earth, Energy, and Environmental sciences, including research areas that intersect with societal issues. All four Stanford Earth departments are partnering in this search and a successful candidate will be appointed in one of the following, including:

Geophysics - We study Earth and planetary processes through laboratory experiments, computational and theoretical modeling, remote imaging, and direct observation. At Stanford, our teaching and research focus on understanding systems critical to the future of civilization. We apply expertise to fundamental research sustaining life on Earth, combining underlying science with studies of Earth’s environment and resource needs.

Candidates must have a PhD in a field relevant to one of the participating departments, have an excellent record of scholarly work, and a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including a dedication to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body. Application packages should be submitted online through Academic Jobs Online and include the following documents: 1) a curriculum vitae; 2) a research statement (3 pages); 3) a diversity statement that demonstrates the applicant’s commitment and potential to contribute to Stanford’s goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion through personal experience or perspective, scholarship, teaching, or service (1 page); 4) a statement of teaching interests (1 page); and 5) a cover letter that includes the names of three referees who can be contacted for letters. Review of applications will begin in January 2021 and continue until the position is filled. All are welcome to apply.
