Cornell University’s Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) seeks to fill a tenure track faculty position in the general area of geochemistry, with an emphasis on magmatic and/or metamorphic processes. This is expected to be one in a series of faculty renewal hires. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to subduction-related processes; formation, evolution and recycling of the oceanic and/or continental crust; fluid-rock interactions at hydrothermal, metamorphic and magmatic conditions; and volatile recycling. Approaches can be theoretical, observational and experimental.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute intellectually to our broad program in solid earth processes, and to interact with other research programs and units at Cornell. Additional desirable attributes of the candidate include the potential for interactions with EAS programs in atmospheric and/or ocean sciences, and with other programs at Cornell including planetary sciences. The successful candidate will have access to a wide variety of campus facilities including those associated with Cornell’s Center for Materials Research, the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, and the Center for Advanced Computing.
Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research, and show promise for attracting external research support. The successful candidate will also be a committed educator, enthusiastic about teaching and supervising student research at all levels. We anticipate filling the position at the Assistant Professor level, but applications for Associate level will be considered; salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Diversity and inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.

Applicants should submit: a cover letter addressed to search committee chair, Dr. Geoff Abers, a curriculum vita, research statement, teaching statement, and complete contact information for three references. Statements should include teaching experience and interests, leadership efforts, and contributions to diversity.
