Faculty Position in Planetary Sciences
The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences invites applications for the first of three anticipated tenure-track faculty positions in planetary science. The first position will be filled at the Assistant Professor level, starting as early as Fall, 2013. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, help develop and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and supervise graduate student research. A Ph.D. is required in the Earth and/or planetary sciences or related discipline; post-doctoral experience is desirable. The successful candidate will further be expected to devote a portion of their research to exploring links between terrestrial and planetary processes. Accordingly, possible areas of planetary research include, but are not limited to, geomorphology and planetary surfaces, volcanology, tectonics and dynamics, petrology and mineralogy, cosmochemistry, cryospheres, climates, and studies of the early Earth and terrestrial planets in the solar system and their subsequent evolution. Approaches involving laboratory, field, and theoretical methods; remote sensing; and spacecraft observation are all welcome.
We strongly encourage the successful candidate to forge research ties with other parts of the Johns Hopkins community that are active in planetary science, including the Applied Physics Laboratory, the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and the Space Telescope Science Institute. There are excellent opportunities for additional collaborations within the Baltimore-Washington region, including with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Carnegie Institution, the Smithsonian Institution, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
Applications can only be submitted electronically through Interfolio (https://secure.interfolio.com/apply/18014), 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 Gaines (firstname.lastname@example.org). Other requests for information may be directed to Prof. John Ferry, Search Committee Chair (email@example.com) Review of the applications will begin December 15, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled
