New Tenure Track Faculty Position
Stable Isotope Geochemistry / Paleoclimatology
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) at the University of Kentucky invites applications for this tenure‐track faculty position with an anticipated start date of August 2015. Exceptional candidates at all ranks will be considered. We seek candidates with expertise in light, stable isotope geochemistry, in particular as applied to research questions in the field of paleoclimatology.
The department maintains a fully equipped, state‐of‐the‐art stable isotope geochemistry facility (three IRMS and full set of peripherals) for analysis of HCNO in virtually any substance. In addition to maintaining a productive, externally funded research program, the new faculty member will teach and mentor at the introductory, major, and graduate levels. Potential collaborative research opportunities exist with faculty in EES; staff of the Kentucky Geological Survey and the Center for Applied Energy Research; and faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, and the College of Engineering.
The successful individual will have a demonstrated publication record, and will have developed, or show the potential for developing, a nationally recognized research program; relevant experience beyond the Ph.D. is essential. Applications will be accepted electronically through Interfolio at: http://apply.interfolio.com/27039 We will begin review of applications on January 15, 2015; however, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
