All assistantships include full academic-year stipends and health insurance, plus summer funding for competitive applicants. Exceptional applicants may qualify for additional awards and fellowships. The department has 11 tenure-track faculty conducting research in seismology, planetary geophysics, geodynamics, tectonics, hydrogeology, stable isotope geochemistry, paleontology, paleoclimatology, paleolimnology, sedimentary geology, petroleum geology, coal geology, structural geology, environmental geology, and petrology. State-of-the-art facilities in the department, the Kentucky Geological Survey, and the Center for Applied Energy Research include: the Kentucky Seismic and Strong-Motion Network; a technical computing cluster with seismic processing, interpretation, and modelling software; laboratories for environmental radiochemistry, stable isotopes, stratigraphy, geomechanics, detrital mineral separation, mineralogy (X-ray analysis, electron microprobe and SEM), and organic petrology; and field instrumentation for shallow onshore/offshore seismic imaging, sediment coring, regional mapping, and hydrogeology. The project supporting this opportunity is focused on the fate of transport of mercury (Hg) in the English-Wabigoon river system, Ontario, Canada. This research has major implications for the environmental quality experienced by indigenous, First Nations peoples in this region, and for the design and implementation of large-scale environmental engineering to affect remediation. The successful candidate will be working with sediment cores from river channel and riparian wetland settings, and will be combining research methods in sedimentology, environmental radiochemistry, elemental and spatial analyses.

If appropriate, the successful candidate may hold a dual appointment as a faculty member within the College as an Associate or Full Professor. Candidates should hold a doctorate or have the equivalent experience in geology, geophysics or a closely related field. Prior experience with a public agency, such as the OGS, would be beneficial.

The objectives and duties of the Oklahoma Geological Survey include the following:
a) A study of the geological formations of the state with special reference to its natural resources, including coal, oil, gas, asphalt, gypsum, salt, cement, stone, clay, lead, zinc, iron, sand, road building material, water resources and all other mineral resources.
b) Management of the Oklahoma seismic recording network, and the reporting and analysis of earthquake activity in the state.
c) The preparation and publication of bulletins and reports, accompanied with necessary illustrations and maps, including both general and detailed descriptions of the geological structure and mineral resources of the state.
d) The consideration of such other related scientific and economic questions that shall be deemed of value to the people of Oklahoma.
