The University of Washington School of Oceanography seeks applications for a full time, 9-month faculty position at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor in the broad field of active geological processes on continental margins.

The successful applicant will be expected to expand the School’s research and teaching efforts in marine geology and geophysics, contributing to an improved understanding of tectonic, sedimentary, and geochemical cycles between the Earth’s oceans, lithosphere, and deep interior. Research and teaching could fall within a wide range of areas, including but not limited to geophysical imaging, earthquake seismology, marine geodesy, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, subduction zone modeling, and geohazards. We welcome the full range of approaches, from field observations and data analysis to laboratory or numerical simulations and theoretical modeling.

Our academic unit is highly multidisciplinary and promotes a collegial culture with broad interdisciplinary research ties throughout the School and across the UW campus. UW faculty are expected to engage in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidate for this position will develop new or expanded areas of expertise within the School of Oceanography and collaborate with colleagues within the School and across the University. The candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching mission of the School, including teaching across different topics, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. In all aspects of this position, the candidate will be expected to promote a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for students, faculty, staff, and the public.
