Director of the Southern California Earthquake Center and Professor of Earth Sciences, University of Southern California

The Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, seeks a senior earthquake scientist to lead the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) as its director and principal investigator. The appointment will be made at the tenured faculty level (Associate Professor or Professor) in the Department of Earth Sciences (http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/). The SCEC director will oversee a world-leading program in earthquake system science that currently involves over 1000 earthquake experts at more than 70 universities and research institutions. The successful candidate will have a strong record of federally funded earthquake research, innovative ideas about the future of earthquake science, and the ability to articulate scientific results to end-users and the general public. She or he will be knowledgeable about the application of advanced computational methods to solve system-level problems, including the use of physics-based methods for earthquake forecasting. Doctoral degree and teaching experience is required.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of teaching and research interests, and three names of individuals familiar with the applicant's work who could be contacted for letters of reference. It should also include a vision statement on how, as SCEC director, the applicant would move forward the Center’s research program. In order to be considered for this position, applicants are required to submit an electronic USC application through the following link: http://jobs.usc.edu/postings/68664 .


Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Global Geophysics, University of Southern California

The Department of Earth Sciences in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, invites applications for a faculty position in global geophysics at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor level. We seek candidates who will develop a program of fundamental research on the structure, deformation, and/or evolution of the lithosphere and its interactions with the Earth’s deep mantle and fluid envelopes. The successful candidate will bring new approaches—observational, experimental, computational, and/or theoretical—to lithospheric studies and will demonstrate a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. We are particularly interested in candidates who can connect research on lithospheric problems to other areas of departmental interest, which include global environmental change, geobiology, and earthquake system science (http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/). Applicants must have a PhD in a related field.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of teaching and research interests, and three or more names of individuals familiar with the applicant's work who could be contacted for letters of reference. In order to be considered for this position, applicants are required to submit an electronic USC application through the following link: http://jobs.usc.edu/postings/67388 .


Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Earthquake Science, University of Southern California

The Department of Earth Sciences of the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, California) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in earthquake science at the junior level. We seek exceptional individuals who can develop a world-class program of research, and have a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. Candidates specializing in any aspect of earthquake science, including seismology, tectonic geodesy, earthquake geology, and computational geophysics, will be considered. The successful candidate will bring new approaches—observational, experimental, computational, and/or theoretical—to earthquake studies. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research links earthquake science to the fundamental issues of lithospheric deformation and geodynamics and to other areas of departmental interest (http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/). The candidates will be evaluated based on their overall originality and promise of work over any specific area of specialization.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree by time of appointment. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of teaching and research interests, and three or more names of individuals familiar with the applicant's work who could be contacted for letters of reference.
