Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UC San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invites applications for the position listed below. We seek a motivated, broad-thinking scientist/educator to establish a vigorous research program and provide intellectual leadership in their field while complementing existing expertise at Scripps and other UCSD departments. SIO is a world-renowned center of solid earth, oceanographic, biological, and atmospheric research with approximately 200 principal investigators leading research programs. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The department is interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to inclusive excellence by providing leadership in teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
Marine Biogeochemistry: We seek outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in marine biogeochemistry. The potential for academic and research excellence (rather than specific research focus) will be the principal criterion for selection. In particular, we seek candidates using innovative and interdisciplinary analytical, field, and/or modeling approaches that will strengthen collaborations across disciplines at Scripps Oceanography. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: radio- and stable-isotope chemistry, regional and/or global biogeochemical cycles (e.g., C, N, P, S), the deep biosphere and/or hydrothermal systems, sedimentary biogeochemistry, diagenesis, and cycling of contaminants.
Ph.D., or equivalent degree, in a relevant field is required at the time of application. Strong potential for development of a vigorous, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program and associated scholarly impact, together with excellent teaching, mentoring, and advising within the SIO undergraduate and graduate programs, evidence of service and broader contributions to diversity, leadership activities, and other items that will contribute positively to departmental welfare are preferred.
