Dear CIG:

Please go here for details and related links:

The Geophysical Institute (GI) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks is
hiring a new seismology faculty member at the rank of Research Assistant
Professor or Research Associate Professor. We seek a scientist interested
in building a long-term research program that leverages the extensive
facilities and personnel of the Seismology Lab and GI. We value an ability
to work collaboratively with other faculty and a motivation to help lead
our graduate student program. To foster these connections, the new hire
will work with the Alaska Earthquake Center and/or the Alaska Volcano
Observatory. These affiliations, together with core university funding, are
expected to provide approximately eight months of support annually for this
twelve-month position. After an initial startup period, the new hire will
be expected to raise additional support through external grants and
contracts of their own.

We invite candidates from a wide range of seismology backgrounds.
Candidates should have broad research interests with applications in
regional tectonic settings and/or volcanoes. Applicants are encouraged to
address this in their statement of research. Candidates will be evaluated,
in part, on their ability to capitalize on the diverse assets of the
Geophysical Institute and on the scientific opportunities afforded by the
active tectonic environment of Alaska.

The new hire will join a dynamic group of two dozen faculty, postdocs,
staff and students dedicated to advancing the field of seismology. Our
research emphasizes earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, glaciers and
tectonics in Alaska and around the world. We track earthquake and volcanic
activity across Alaska in partnerships with federal and state agencies. The
Seismology Lab houses the Alaska Earthquake Center and is a core component
of the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The tremendous rates of tectonic and
volcanic activity make Alaska an unparalleled laboratory for seismology. We
apply this real-world experience to research projects with global
implications. Current emphasis on Alaska from the EarthScope and GeoPRISMS
programs make this a particularly exciting time. Abundant seismoacoustic
research opportunities also exist through collaboration with the GI-based
Wilson Infrasound Observatories.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks values diversity among its students,
staff, and faculty. We encourage applications from women, members of
minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the
university's research, teaching and service missions.

To apply go to www.uakjobs.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=84168.
Application review will start on July 1, 2014. Refer questions to Doug
Christensen (doug at giseis.alaska.edu).
