Tenure-Track Assistant Professor - Structural Geology/Tectonics
The University of Oklahoma invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in Structural Geology/Tectonics. Exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor level will also be considered. We seek a dynamic colleague who will teach and supervise students at all levels, while conducting an independent, externally funded research program in his/her field of expertise. The holder of this position is expected to (1) conduct research in structural analysis using any combination of theoretical, experimental, field and geophysical approaches; and (2) educate students in the area of structural concepts and techniques. The area of research experience and expertise is open. We expect the candidate to teach undergraduate Structural Geology and graduate courses in Advanced Structural Geology, and participate in the Introductory Field Geology course and Field camp.
Professors Matt Pranter (CPSGG) and Zulfiquar Reza (MPGE) led a field trip for the Integrated Reservoir Modeling and Simulation course to the Piceance Basin of northwestern Colorado to analyze world-class fluvial and shallow-marine outcrop analogs for comparison to subsurface reservoirs. Geology, geophysics, and petroleum engineering graduate students in the course will model and analyze subsurface reservoirs of the same formations in the Piceance Basin.
Halliburton Awards Pick & Hammer with $20k Grant
Halliburton awarded a $20k grant to Pick & Hammer Club to assist in their outreach efforts and to bring interactive learning of geosciences to students of all ages. Pick & Hammer provide teachers with Mineral Kits and educational tools to spark an interest in earth sciences both in and out of the classroom. Cupcake coring is one way our students illustrate the process of collecting samples in the field. To contact a member from Pick & Hammer, please visit their website: Pick & Hammer.
