The Department of Earth Sciences in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, invites applications for a faculty position in global geophysics at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor level. We seek candidates who will develop a program of fundamental research on the structure, deformation, and/or evolution of the lithosphere and its interactions with the Earth's deep mantle and fluid envelopes. The successful candidate will bring new approaches—observational, experimental, computational, and/or theoretical—to lithospheric studies and will demonstrate a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. We are particularly interested in candidates who can connect research on lithospheric problems to other areas of departmental interest, which include global environmental change, geobiology, and earthquake system science (http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/). Applicants must have a PhD in a related field.
