Faculty Position, Tectonic Petrochronology, University of Arizona

The Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor in petrochronology—an emerging field that explores the power of minerals to serve as time capsules that yield information about pressure, temperature, deformation, and interaction with fluids during their evolution. The appointee is expected to develop a high-profile, externally funded research program and teach courses in solid-Earth aspects of geology. This position has excellent opportunities for collaboration given existing strengths in igneous petrology/geochemistry, U-Th-Pb geochronology (Arizona LaserChron Center), noble gas geochemistry/geochronology (Arizona Noble Gas Laboratory), TIMS-based geochronology and petrogenesis, and fission-track geo/thermochronology.

Review of applications will begin January 6, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled. Details about the position and application materials can be found at: Equal Opportunity Employer Minorities/Women/Vets/Disabled.
