[20180301] Tenure-track faculty position at Caltech, USA

The Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at the California Institute of Technology is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in geophysics at the assistant professor level. We invite applicants in any area of geophysics, broadly defined. Preference is for individuals who will lead an innovative research program and are committed to teaching, with the applicant's overall creativity and potential being valued more than their specific area of expertise within geophysics.

The term of the initial appointment at the assistant professor level is normally four years, with appointment contingent upon completion of a PhD in a relevant field. Exceptionally well-qualified candidates may also be considered at the tenured professor level. Initial review of applications will begin on March 1, 2018, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Interested applicants should submit an electronic application that includes a brief cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching plans, up to three representative publications, and contact information for at least three individuals who may be contacted for letters of reference.
