The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Kentucky invites applications for this tenure?track faculty position with an anticipated start date of August, 2014. 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 of Earth and Environmental Sciences has recently completed the establishment of 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.
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.
To Apply: Interested applicants should submit a merged .pdf document to Stable Isotope Geochemistry Search Committee, c/o Dr. Kevin Yeager (firstname.lastname@example.org). The document should include: cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief statements of research and teaching interests, copies of relevant research publications, and contact information for at least three references.
Deadline: We will begin review of applications on December 01, 2013; however, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
