COVID-19 RESPONSE OU TOGETHER

Assistant Professor Structural Geology/Tectonics

The School of Geosciences at the University of Oklahoma (OU) invites applications for a tenure-­track position in Structural Geology / Tectonics at the rank of Assistant Professor. The position will contribute to and expand upon existing interdisciplinary strengths in the department via the study of the 3D architecture and evolution of Earth's surface/crust, associated deformation and deformation processes, and potential use-­inspired research. The candidate must hold a Ph.D. in a related field at the time of appointment and exhibit strong research potential. The candidate is expected to establish an innovative, independent, and externally funded research program, build collaborations within and outside the School, and work with colleagues and students toward OU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals. The candidate must have a demonstrated interest in teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses and mentoring graduate students. Example courses include, but are not limited to, Tectonic Geomorphology, Faulted & Fractured Reservoirs and Subsurface Fluid Storage, Advanced Structural Geology, Geodynamics, and Tectonics & Climate. Salary and start-­up funds will be commensurate with experience.

We are looking for a broad-­minded colleague whose skills and interests will complement and build upon existing areas of research within the department. The research area is open but can include topics such as field-­based studies, landscape evolution and tectonic geomorphology, geologic hazards, the structure and long-­term stability of subsurface reservoirs, and tectonics and the carbon cycle. The School of Geosciences, part of the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy, has a large, vibrant faculty with a broad range of research activities in energy geosciences, paleoclimate and environmental geology, geochemistry, seismicity and earth structure, among others. Current departmental emphases include induced seismicity, fluid-­mineral-­organic matter interactions, and subsurface reservoir characterization and monitoring. The position supports college initiatives and research priorities in energy geosciences, seismicity, and water. The position also integrates into university-wide major research initiatives in energy, environmental sustainability, and computer/data science.

Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, Sam Noble Museum & Assistant Professor, School of Geosciences

The Sam Noble Museum (https://samnoblemuseum.ou.edu/) and the School of Geosciences (https://www.ou.edu/mcee/geosciences) at the University of Oklahoma seek two innovative and enthusiastic colleagues to fill tenure-track split positions as Assistant Curators at the Sam Noble Museum and Assistant Professors in the School of Geosciences to begin in July 2022.

We seek colleagues who will establish discipline-leading, student-involved, and externally funded research programs; build collaborations within and outside the University; and work with colleagues and students toward OU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals. The ideal candidates for these Assistant Curator/Assistant Professor positions will perform specimen-based research in any related subfield of vertebrate or invertebrate paleontology, including but not limited to biodiversity, paleoecology, phylogeny reconstruction, evolutionary or conservation paleobiology, isotope or trace element geochemistry, and/or paleoclimatology, and would have experience working with museum collections.

The School of Geosciences is Proud to Become an AGU Bridge Partner Institute

Joining a network of national doctoral-granting institutions, we are committed to the principles underlying the Bridge Program. The AGU Bridge Program was launched in 2019 to increase the number of underrepresented minority (URM) students (defined in this project as African American, Hispanic American, and Native American) in earth and space science graduate programs. Prospective URM graduate students can visit the AGU Bridge program website (https://www.agu.org/bridge-program) or reach out to Dr. Xiaowei Chen at xiaowei.chen@ou.edu for more details.
