(Computational Geoscientist/Tenure-track)
Department of Geology & Geophysics
The Department of Geology & Geophysics at Louisiana State University seeks a full time tenure-track Assistant Professor specializing in computational geosciences. Responsibilities include supervising graduate student research (MS and PhD), publishing research findings in highly ranked journals; teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in his or her area of specialization, and serving on committees in the departmental, college, and professional societies. The successful candidate is expected to develop a strong, externally-funded research program and to provide excellence in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels and to provide synergy to existing focus areas in evolution of sedimentary systems and earth materials and solid earth processes.
Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in geological sciences or other relevant discipline; record of published research; ability to attract funding. Additional Qualifications Desired: Of special interest are individuals who use high-performance computing to advance our understanding of Earth systems and processes. Possible specializations include, but are not limited to atomic/molecular dynamics and first-principles simulations, fluid dynamics, geodynamics, geophysics, pore scale simulations of flow and transport, remote sensing, and surface processes simulations.
The Center for Computation and Technology (CCT) at LSU has high performance computing resources provided in part, by the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative and national level resources provided by NSF via the XSEDE project. These resources support work in cyberinfrastructure, computational materials science and nanotechnology, virtual reality, astrophysical fluid dynamics and most recently digital media (see for more information). Excellent opportunities exist for collaboration with other departments in the College of Science, College of Engineering, School of the Coast, and the LSU Synchrotron Light facility (Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices).
LSU is committed to increasing faculty diversity and the department welcomes applications from women and underrepresented ethnic, racial, and cultural groups and from people with disabilities. An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check. Application deadline is January 9, 2013 or until a candidate is selected. Inquiries should be directed to Search Committee, at 225-578-3353 or Apply online and view a more detailed ad at: Position # 000191
