[GilbertClub] Assistant Professor in Tectonics at University of Nevada, Reno

Hello Gilbert Club,

The Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno has opened a broad search for a tenure-track
faculty member in the general area of tectonics and deformation. Full ad below.

Assistant Professor in Tectonics

The Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno seeks an Earth Scientist for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level specializing in Tectonics and Deformation. This position is expected to bring
expertise in tectonic processes and deformation within the crust and/or mantle. We seek an outstanding scientist who explores Earth processes using a combination of field, laboratory, and numerical techniques and, in doing so, will establish an innovative,
world-class externally-funded research program. It is expected that, depending on the candidate hired, s/he will contribute to both undergraduate and graduate curricula in regional tectonics, cordilleran evolution, our summer field camp, and required course
work in structural geology as well as graduate courses in the individual’s area of expertise. The successful applicant will be expected to direct graduate student research at the M.S. and Ph.D. levels. The specific field of interest is open, but preference
will be given to candidates who would complement and interact with our existing strengths in the structural and metamorphic evolution of the lithosphere, economic geology, geothermal systems, and natural hazards. The Department is part of the Mackay School
of Earth Sciences and Engineering, which also includes two state-funded Earth Science units, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and the Nevada Seismological Laboratory. More information about the Department can be found at
Applications are due by December 31, 2015 and review will begin shortly after.

We are expecting to fill the position by May 1, 2016 with a start date of July 1, 2016. Questions regarding the search may be addressed to the head of the search committee, Dr. Greg Arehart, at
