The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder, invites applications for an open rank (tenured, or tenure-track) faculty position in the field of Geobiology. They seek a geoscientist who addresses the interaction and co-evolution of the Earth and biosphere at any time scale, including deep time. In particular, a scientist who will develop and apply state-of-the-art geochemical tools to Geobiological problems, in combination with petrologic, sedimentological,
fossil, molecular, biological, modeling, field and/or theoretical approaches.
This position is a central part of a current hiring initiative in Geobiology. The successful candidate should significantly augment the Department’s geobiology program, and complement our strengths in geomicrobiology, organic and inorganic geochemistry, paleontology, planetary sciences, petrology, geophysics, geomorphology and/or paleoclimatology. We are particularly interested in applicants who would establish an analytical facility that would enhance the Department’s growing array of geochemical and isotopic instrumentation, and engage in collaborations with our faculty. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an innovative and impactful research program, and to vigorously contribute to Departmental teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
This position will be filled at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. A PhD in Earth sciences or a related field is required at the time of appointment, and post-doctoral or current faculty experience is preferred.
