tenure-track, assistant professor position in chemical oceanography to
begin August 16, 2018. We seek an individual with outstanding research and
teaching capabilities and broad interests related to the ways in which
marine geochemical and biogeochemical processes mediate chemical exchange
between the hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. Areas of interest of
the successful candidate are likely to include — but are not limited to —
one or more of the following areas: trace element geochemistry,
biogeochemical cycling, air-sea fluxes, land-sea fluxes, and ocean

The SEOE houses state-of-the-art geochemical facilities ( including the Center for Elemental
Mass Spectrometry (CEMS) with plasma-source mass spectrometers for trace
metal concentration and isotope ratio measurements, as well as stable- and
