The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in
Paleoclimatology/ Paleoceanography at the assistant professor level to
begin July 1, 2002.
We seek applicants with a broad range of research interests including one
or more of the following: (1) application of inorganic and organic
geochemical proxies to reconstruct marine and terrestrial environments in
Earth's past; (2) atmospheric, oceanic, and geochemical/geophysical
modeling; (3) linkages between the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and
lithosphere including climate change on short and long time scales, ancient
ocean circulation, biogeochemical cycling, paleoecology, or evolution.
Scientists who work on records from marine, lake and ice cores, and land
sections are encouraged to apply.
We seek a versatile scientist whose expertise will interface with existing
departmental research programs, and who will advance educational programs
in Earth Systems Science through developing cross-disciplinary ties with
other units on campus including the Departments of Marine Sciences and
Geography, and the Carolina Environmental Program.
The department houses state-of-the-art laboratories including scanning
electron microscope, thermal ionization mass spectrometer, DCP and has
access to ICP-MS and electron microprobe at Duke University. The Department
of Marine Sciences houses a GC-C-isotope ratio mass spectrometer.
Additionally, UNC-CH and Duke University jointly operate the R/V Cape
Hatteras, a part of the UNOLS oceanographic research fleet. The university
offers access to several in-house supercomputing facilities as well as to
the NC Supercomputing Center (www.ncsc.org/), whose environmental science
group conducts extensive research on climate modeling.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. at the time of appointment and postdoctoral
and teaching experience is highly desirable. The successful candidate will
be expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and
to demonstrate excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and
Applicants must submit a letter of application, names, addresses, e-mail
