Cornell University: Tenure-track Faculty Position - Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Cornell University's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) seeks to fill a tenure track faculty position in coastal geology, sedimentology, or coastal geohazards, with an emphasis on the response of coastal regions to tectonic, geodynamic, climatic, or atmospheric processes. We are particularly interested in candidates who use observational data, including but not limited to land- or shallow-marine-based field studies or remote sensing, in collaboration with experimental or computational approaches. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, sediment transport, the geological record of storms or tsunamis, inundation responses to storm surges or rising sea levels, coastal erosion, granular flow, landslides, geomorphology, and geodynamics of coastal uplift and subsidence.

The successful candidate will interact with EAS programs in geological sciences and in atmospheric and ocean sciences, and contribute to teaching programs within EAS in geological sciences. The candidate will also have opportunities to interact with other research programs and units at Cornell including the Cornell Tech Campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City, and New York Sea Grant. The successful candidate will have access to a wide variety of campus facilities including the Paleontological Research Institute and the Cornell Center for Advanced Computing.

Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research, and show promise for attracting external research support. The successful candidate will also be a committed educator, enthusiastic about teaching and supervising student research at all levels. We anticipate filling the position at the Assistant or Associate Professor levels; salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Diversity and inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.
