Assistant Professor of Geochemistry - Earth/Planetary Processes
September 10, 2018
Providence, Rhode Island
Full Time - Experienced
Faculty – Tenure Track
The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown University (http://www.brown.edu/academics/earth-environmental-planetary-sciences/) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment in geochemistry. Any analytical, experimental and theoretical/computational approach to understanding the origin and chemical evolution of the Earth and planets will be considered. Some examples include, but are not limited to, cosmochemistry, planetary petrology, non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry, early Earth evolution, volcanology, and interactions of planetary materials with hydrospheres and atmospheres. Preference will be given to candidates whose strengths complement departmental research expertise in Geochemistry and Petrology, Planetary Geoscience, Geophysics, and Climate and Environment. We seek scientists whose research integrates field observations, geochemical analyses, experimental studies, and geochemical theory and/or modeling. We are interested in scientists whose research transcends traditional boundaries in geochemistry, such as between high-temperature and low-temperature geochemistry, geochemistry and geophysics, and terrestrial and planetary. The successful candidate will maintain an active, externally-funded research program and enjoy a commitment to teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, descriptions of research and teaching interests and a list of at least three potential referees via the website http://apply.interfolio.com/51680. Inquiries and other communications may be directed to: DEEPS@Brown.edu. Applications received by November 1st, 2018 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled. The start date for this position is July 1st, 2019.
A Ph.D. is required. Postdoctoral experience is a plus.

About Brown University
Twenty-five faculty guide 80-90 undergraduate concentrators and 50-60 graduate students in a collaborative learning environment.
On July 1, 2014 the Department of Geological Sciences became the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences. The name change better represents the diversity of work done in the Department and more accurately reflects the character of the scholarship, teaching, and training in our Department. We believe that changing our name to the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences does justice to the balance of research and teaching of our faculty.
