We seek a broadly trained scientist who has the potential to establish a highly visible undergraduate research program and who will be passionate about teaching at all levels of the curriculum in a primarily undergraduate, residential, liberal arts-centered institution. We are especially interested in candidates whose research and pedagogy will connect and integrate physics with other disciplines and who have the potential to collaboratively contribute to interdisciplinary curricular and scholarly efforts within the School of Science and at the College. The successful candidate will also display dedication to inclusive excellence in STEM and higher education.

The search is primarily focused on candidates who can support the department’s geophysics degree specialization. This includes teaching introductory and advanced level geology courses, some physics courses, and establishing a student-centered research program. We welcome candidates in all areas of specialization within geophysics. Some areas of particular interest include (but are not limited to): seismology, tectonophysics, geodesy, nonlinear geophysics, mineral physics, geomagnetism, volcanology, ocean sciences, and/or allied geophysics disciplines. An earned doctorate in geophysics, geology, physics, or a closely related field is required. Although post-doctoral experience is preferred, other backgrounds will be considered; ABDs will be considered only if the degree will be completed prior to the start date.

Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model, to maintaining both high-quality teaching and an active and productive research program involving highly motivated undergraduates, and to seeking external funding consistent with this mission. Our expectation is that a substantial portion of the new faculty member’s research will be performed on campus and will involve undergraduates. Faculty members also serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the Department, School, and College. A dedicated research laboratory in our newly renovated building and competitive start-up funds will be provided.

Hibernia Project Chair in Sedimentary Basins, Memorial University

The Department of Earth Sciences at Memorial University seeks candidates for the newly created Hibernia Project Industrial Research Chair in Sedimentary Basins (Ref: VPA-EASC-2017-001). We are seeking a faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level who will conduct and coordinate research on sedimentary basins from the basin scale to the individual petroleum reservoir scale. The Hibernia Project Chair is expected to build on existing petroleum geoscience expertise and research capacity at Memorial University and encourage and develop new collaborations between Memorial faculty and students and the oil and gas industry.

The position is a regular tenure-track position, but partially funded by the Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd. (HMDC), the industry sponsor of the chair. HMDC is responsible for management and operations of the Hibernia oil field. It is also expected that the selected candidate will apply for an Associate NSERC Industrial Research Chair (IRC) within one year of starting at Memorial University. More information on the NSERC IRC program can be found at https://tinyurl.com/28h5rwc. The budget for the chair includes a guaranteed $500,000 from HMDC. An additional $1 million may be available in matching funds from the NSERC IRC program and the provincial InnovateNL agency (https://tinyurl.com/yb55rhqo), should the Candidate’s application to these parties be successful. The combined budget will cover both the candidate’s salary for the first five years of the chair and the individual’s research program.

The successful candidate will have research interests in the tectonics of sedimentary basins that may include, but are not limited to: 1) sedimentary architecture, facies, and diagenesis and their effects on reservoir character, prospectivity, performance, and petroleum recovery; 2) geological controls on the seismic response of sedimentary rocks and fluids in the subsurface environment; 3) structure and tectonic evolution of sedimentary basins; 4) sediment provenance studies; and/or 5) exhumation and thermal-burial histories of sedimentary basins.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in Earth Science or a related field, an exceptional record of peer-reviewed research related to the tectonics of sedimentary basins, and the capacity to develop and lead a high-quality research program, at least some of which will be based in Newfoundland and Labrador and funded through external awards including industry partners. It is expected that the candidate will demonstrate commitment to the effective mentoring of students and teaching excellence at the undergraduate and graduate level. The candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in topics including tectonics, sedimentary basin evolution, and geological field methods. Experience in research within industry-academic research consortia; the ability to undertake cutting edge industrially relevant research with industry partners; potential for and demonstrated interest and ability to conduct and support studies involving students and industry partners; and hands-on industry experience are also considered assets for the position. The candidate must also meet the requirements for obtaining an NSERC Associate IRC (see Stature Assessment…here: https://tinyurl.com/28h5rwc).

Applications should be received by September 15th, 2018, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Candidates should submit a letter of application with the names and contact information (including email) of three referees, current curriculum vitae, and a statement of planned research program and teaching interests to: Dr. John Hanchar, Head, Department of Earth Sciences, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, Canada A1B 3X5, or, preferably, email applications in PDF format to: jhanchar@mun.ca.
