The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the fields of climate, carbon cycling, or paleoclimatology. The ideal candidate will study climate or the effects of climate change in modern systems and/or over Cenozoic Earth history. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: paleoclimatology and records of consequent environmental change; elemental cycling and associated climate feedbacks; the response of terrestrial, marine, and/or freshwater systems to climate change. The candidate is expected to employ quantitative tools and ideally will integrate field observations with laboratory measurements. The successful candidate is also expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded research program, maintain a strong publication record, teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses, advise students, and be active in university service. We are seeking candidates who will complement our research programs in biogeochemistry and environmental geology as well as foster collaboration with environmental scientists across the Washington University community. Applications should be received by November 1, 2016 to ensure full consideration.
