Job description

The University of Washington seeks an outstanding scientist working at the forefront of planetary research in surfaces, atmospheres, or interiors of planets, exoplanets, or moons. The opening is for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth & Space Sciences.

The new faculty member will be specialized in one or more of the following: geology, geomorphology, geochemistry, glaciology, or geophysics of planets and interactions with their atmospheres and oceans. They may focus on observations, experiments, and/or modeling. We seek a colleague who can contribute collaboratively within the department, college, and across campus, for example, the university’s Astrobiology Program. Current or potential involvement in planetary exploration and/or use of remote sensing data is desirable but not essential.

Candidates should demonstrate the potential to build an internationally recognized research program that addresses questions of fundamental significance. Candidates should also show potential for high quality undergraduate and graduate teaching. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Geophysics, Geology, Planetary Sciences, or a related field at the time of appointment.
