Assistant Professor, Neotectonics/Thermochronology, New Mexico
The Department of Geological Sciences seeks applications from neotectonicists/thermochronologists who are interested in teaching and research in a geologically and culturally diverse environment in the Rio Grande rift of southern New Mexico. The Department values a balance of teaching and research. We seek individuals interested in building a department that will meet geoscience challenges of the 21st century. We offer the BS and MS degrees in geology. The successful candidate will participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, advise undergraduate and graduate research projects, develop and maintain a dynamic research program, contribute service to the department, university, and geologic community, and may participate in outreach programs.
Submit the following in a single pdf file to Dr. Jim Murphy, Chair of the Search Committee at email@example.com: cover letter, CV (including publication list), statement of research interest, statement of teaching philosophy, list and contact information for at least three references. The prior closing date of November 12, 2012, has been extended to December 14, 2012, but the search will continue until the position is filled.
For more information, including application procedures, see the department web site at http://www.nmsu.edu/~geology/ and the advertisement on the NMSU job web site athttp://www.nmsu.edu/~personel/postings/faculty/16554338.html. NMSU is an EEO/AA employer.
Requirements: PhD in geology in the field of neotectonics or thermochronology. Field-oriented research program preferred. Demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching and research.

Stiftung Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) – Neumayer Station personnel – Antarctica
Die Stiftung Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung (AWI) führt an der Neumayer Station in der Antarktis ein langfristig angelegtes Forschungsprogramm durch, das meteorologische, luftchemische und geophysikalische Beobachtungen umfasst. Darüber hinaus dient die Station im Polarsommer (Dezember bis Februar) als logistische Basis für Flugzeugeinsätze über dem antarktischen Kontinent und Feldexpeditionen, die weit über das Inlandeis führen.
Für den wissenschaftlichen Betrieb der Station werden in jedem Jahr diplomierte oder promovierte Wissenschaftler/innen (Überwinterer) aus den Bereichen
Geophysik, Meteorologie, angewandte Physik und/oder Chemie
gesucht. Sie sollen in enger Zusammenarbeit und fachübergreifend die Betreuung
– des geophysikalischen Observatoriums (Seismologie, Geomagnetik, Infraschall-Station) der Station sicherstellen. Vorausgesetzt werden fundierte Kenntnisse in den Betriebssystemen Unix/Linux inkl. Kenntnisse in Netzwerktechnik sowie eingehende Programmiererfahrung (Perl, C, Fortran). – Kennziffer 2/G/ÜWI
– des meteorologischen Observatoriums (Synoptik, Aerologie, Strahlungsmessungen, Satellitenbildempfang) – Kennziffer 3/G/ÜWI
– des luftchemischen Observatoriums (Spurengase, Aerosole) – Kennziffer 4/G/ÜWI
der Station sicherstellen.
Die Bewerber/innen müssen bereit sein, neben den Fachaufgaben andere für den Stationsbetrieb wichtige Tätigkeiten zu übernehmen. Sie müssen fachlich gut ausgebildet und den besonderen Belastungen eines ununterbrochenen, fünfzehnmonatigen Aufenthalts in der Antarktis physisch und psychisch gewachsen sein. Es werden auch Bewerber/innen berücksichtigt, die ihr Diplom erst im Sommer des laufenden Jahres erwerben.
PhD opportunities in Structural Geology, Tectonics, and Seismology at the University of Colorado-Boulder

Projects approaching these topics from both the geology (field geology, structural and microstructural studies, petrology) and geophysical perspectives (seismic observations and modeling) and using areas throughout North America (Canadian shield, Cordillera, Rockies, and across the U.S.) are available. Applicants with interests in blending geologic studies with seismology are particularly encouraged to apply.
If interested please contact:
Dr. Kevin Mahan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or

Ph.Opportunity in Structural Geology and Tectonics at University of Tennessee, Knoxville
The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at University of Tennessee, Knoxville solicits applications for a Ph.D. student to conduct research on shear zones and detachments that formed during syn-convergent extension in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru. The project integrates microstructural and kinematic analysis, EBSD, electron microprobe, and fieldwork in the Western Cordillera, Peru. The project is NSF-funded and will start in the Summer/Fall 2013. Laboratory work will utilize the Cameca SX-100 electron microprobe facility at the University of Tennessee and the Zeiss Supra 55VP scanning electron microscope/EBSD system at Montana State University in collaboration with Dr. Colin Shaw. Knoxville offers educational and recreational opportunities in the nearby Cumberland Plateau and the Great Smoky Mountains.
