The Department of Earth Sciences of the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, California) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in earthquake science at the junior level. We seek exceptional individuals who can develop a world-class program of research, and have a strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. Candidates specializing in any aspect of earthquake science, including seismology, tectonic geodesy, earthquake geology, and computational geophysics, will be considered. The successful candidate will bring new approaches—observational, experimental, computational, and/or theoretical—to earthquake studies. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research links earthquake science to the fundamental issues of lithospheric deformation and geodynamics and to other areas of departmental interest (http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/). The candidates will be evaluated based on their overall originality and promise of work over any specific area of specialization.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree by time of appointment. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of teaching and research interests, and three or more names of individuals familiar with the applicant’s work who could be contacted for letters of reference. Review of complete applications will begin November 1, 2016. In order to be considered for this position, all candidates must apply via the “CLICK HERE” link at the top or bottom of this page.
