[GilbertClub] Energy Geosciences faculty position, Virginia tech

Dear Earth-surface processes researchers,
The Department of Geosciences at Virginia Polytechnic
Institute & State University (“Virginia Tech”) invites
applicants for a tenure track position in energy geosciences. We seek a broad-
thinking, multi-disciplinary scientist employing a combination of
field, analytical, experimental and/or theoretical approaches to
understanding complex problems related to energy resources. Energy
geosciences includes the origin of both conventional and
unconventional hydrocarbon occurrences, natural and enhanced
geothermal systems, research related to the materials and natural
resources that produce energy, and the genesis of deposits that
produce the materials for energy generation. Applicants must have
a doctorate in geosciences or a related discipline. The successful
candidate will be expected to establish an active externally
funded research program and develop strong ties with stakeholders
and constituents (private and public sectors), teach a range of
undergraduate and graduate courses, advise and mentor students,
maintain an exemplary record of scholarly activity, and contribute
to university and professional service. The position is advertised
at the Assistant Professor level, but highly qualified mid-career
applicants may also be considered.

The Department of Geosciences is a collaborative group of
22 Earth Science faculty with expertise in three focus areas:
Solid Earth Materials and Processes, Resources and Hazards, and
History of Earth and Life. Candidates who wish to be considered
