School of Earth and Space Exploration and School of Molecular Sciences, Arizona State University: Assistant/Associate Professor JOB# 11789

The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) and the School of Molecular Sciences (SMS) at Arizona State University invite applications for a jointly-appointed, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor with expertise in Isotope Geochemistry, with an anticipated start date of August 2017. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with experience. We seek applications from diverse candidates with expertise in state-of-the-art applications of radiogenic isotope or light stable isotope geochemistry. We especially encourage applicants who: 1) employ analytical isotope geochemistry to study the tempo and dynamics of chemical, physical, or biological processes on Earth and elsewhere in our solar system; 2) have interests in the development of novel analytical protocols and instrumentation; 3) are enthusiastic about collaborative research spanning traditional disciplinary boundaries; and 4) complement ASU’s existing strengths in geochemistry.


The successful candidate will explore problems at the leading edge of their field, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, conduct research publishable in top-tier journals, and participate in service to the institution and profession as appropriate.


SESE and SMS have a long history of synergistic research and interdisciplinarity that has resulted in many successful joint faculty appointments. Together, SESE and SMS set the stage for a new era of scientific exploration. SESE brings together all of Earth and space science in one school, combining the strengths of science, engineering, and education to investigate the biggest questions of our time. SMS transcends traditional boundaries of chemistry and biochemistry to conduct solutions-oriented research and train a new generation of molecular scientists. SESE and SMS faculty benefit from a variety of state-of-the-art facilities on the Tempe AZ campus including: new clean laboratories and instrumentation space, and centers of excellence in geochronology, aqueous and environmental geochemistry, and non-traditional isotope geochemistry. Both the SESE and SMS communities benefit from access to ASU’s Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS/NanoSIMS) facilities, and world-class microbeam instrumentation in ASU’s LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid-State Science.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in a relevant discipline by the time of appointment
  • Experience in isotope geochemistry commensurate with rank
  • Demonstrated potential to establish a vigorous, externally-funded research program with national and international impact
  • Evidence of scholarly contributions in isotope geochemistry commensurate with rank
  • A commitment to quality teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.


Desired Qualifications:

  • Research expertise as noted above
  • Demonstrated success meeting the educational needs of diverse student populations and/or engaging in scientific outreach to diverse communities.


To apply, submit the following materials as a single pdf file via email to sesenewfac@asu.edu: 1) a cover letter including a description of the applicant’s experience, research, and teaching interests; 2) a current CV; and 3) the names, email addresses and telephone numbers of three references who may be contacted at a later stage of the search. Please indicate the Job number 11789 in your letter and email.


Initial deadline for receipt of complete applications is December 20, 2016; if not filled, reviews will continue every two weeks thereafter until search is closed. A background check is required for employment.
