Endowed faculty position in petroleum geology at the University
of Colorado Boulder:

The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of
Colorado Boulder, invites applications for the Bruce D. Benson
Endowed Chair in Petroleum Geology. We seek an outstanding
scientist who has a demonstrable record for excellence in
teaching and a strong scholarly record in the broad field of
petroleum geosciences. Candidates with an ability to integrate
multiple specialties to solve difficult technical questions are
desired. The focus of teaching and research can be in any aspect
of petroleum geology, such as reservoir characterization,
structure and geomechanics, reflection seismology, petroleum
geochemistry, or petroleum systems modeling.

The successful candidate is expected to bridge to wider faculty
interests, build collaborations with existing faculty, and
complement our strengths in petroleum geology, sedimentology,
stratigraphy, geophysics, paleontology, structure and tectonics,
geochemistry, geohydrology, paleoclimatology, geomorphology, and
geobiology. The successful candidate will need to: develop an
externally funded, innovative and impactful research program
(preferably with industry participation); supervise independent
student research at both graduate and undergraduate levels;
contribute to departmental teaching at all levels; and provide
applied training and guidance for students interested in a
career in the energy sector.

This academic-year, open rank, tenure-track position has a start
date as early as January 1, 2020. A PhD in Geological Sciences
or a related field is required, and we especially encourage
applications from candidates with prior industry, research,
and/or faculty experience. Review of applications will begin on
July 20, 2019 and full consideration will be given to
applications received by September 1, 2019. Applications will be
