Faculty Positions in Geosciences and in Environmental Sciences

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for
multiple tenure-track or tenured faculty positions. The positions can be filled at the Assistant,
Associate, or Full Professor level, starting as early as Fall 2016. The successful candidates are
expected to develop internationally recognized and externally funded research programs, to help
develop and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and to supervise graduate
student research. In the case of an appointment with tenure, the candidate must already be
internationally recognized and have a demonstrated record of external research funding. A Ph.D. is
required in the Earth Sciences or a related natural sciences discipline; post-doctoral experience is
desirable. Applicants are sought for two focus areas:

Geosciences including low-temperature geochemistry and studies of the early Earth,
cosmochemistry, geophysics and geodynamics, volcanology and igneous petrology. We are
particularly interested in candidates whose research has synergies with our recent hires with
expertise in sedimentary, metamorphic and tectonic processes, planetary geology, and planetary

Environmental Sciences including: natural resources (including water, metals, soils, and energy),
ecology, critical zone science, marine sciences, cryospheric sciences, geomorphology, landscape
hydrology, environmental change, air pollution, and, biogeochemistry. We are particularly
interested in candidates whose research has synergies with our program in Global Environmental
Change and Sustainability.

Opportunities exist for the successful candidate to forge research and teaching ties with other parts
of the Johns Hopkins community that are active in the earth and environmental sciences, and
sustainability. They include multiple engineering departments, Environmental Health Sciences at
the School of Public Health, the Applied Physics Laboratory, and the cross-departmental
Environment, Energy, Sustainability, and Health Institute. There are excellent opportunities for
additional collaborations within the Baltimore-Washington region, including with the Carnegie
Institution, the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Maryland, and
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Applications must be submitted electronically using Interfolio http://ift.tt/21dhveq,
should indicate the relevant focus area and must include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae,
statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and complete contact information of
at least three references. Questions concerning submission of application materials should be
directed to Kristen Heisey (kgaines@jhu.edu). Other requests for information may be directed to
Professor Sverjensky, Geosciences, Search Committee Chair (sver@jhu.edu) and/or Professor
Waugh, Environmental Sciences Search Committee Chair (Waugh@jhu.edu). Review of the
applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Applications
received by 30 June, 2016 will receive full consideration.

Johns Hopkins University is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body.
The University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities,
protected veterans and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and
other protected group members. Consistent with the University’s goals of achieving excellence in all
areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.
