The Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA 02139, invites qualified candidates to apply for a tenure-track faculty position. The search is in the broad area of geophysics and geochemistry encompassing the Earth and other planetary bodies in the solar system. We seek candidates who use theory, observation, and/or experimentation and particularly encourage applicants whose work crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries. Candidates should have the potential for innovation and leadership in research and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in geoscience or related field by the start of employment. Our intent is to hire at the assistant professor level, but more senior appointments may also be considered. A complete application must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one- to two-page descriptions each of research and teaching plans, and three letters of recommendation. We request that in their cover letter, applicants explicitly commit to our department’s code of conduct: https://eapsweb.mit.edu/about/code-conduct
