The University of Utah is seeking applications for the position of Associate Professor/ Professor for work across the Department of Geology and Geophysics and the Energy & Geoscience Institute.

Just having reported on the groundbreaking research to be conducted at the University of Utah, this job position should be of interest.

“The Department of Geology and Geophysics (GG) and the Energy & Geoscience Institute (EGI) invite applications for a position equally split between GG and EGI, to begin Fall Semester 2017.

The position in GG will be at the Associate Professor or Professor level with the possibility of tenure at appointment; the position at EGI will be at the level of Senior Research Scientist.

The successful candidate will bring expertise in energy geoscience, and will develop a strong, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program involving students and supported by industry and government resources. We seek experts in subsurface geologic and geophysical interpretation using skill sets that can be broadly applied to current and future energy systems, including hydrocarbon and renewable energy sources such as enhanced geothermal energy, as well as allied fields such as carbon capture and storage.

Possible areas of specialization include petrophysics, multiphase fluid flow, fluid-rock interaction, heat flow, and geostatistical modeling.

Candidates must have a completed Ph.D. at the time of appointment and a strong record of research and publication. Teaching responsibilities will likely include courses within GG’s Petroleum Industry Career Path, special topics seminars, and industry short courses as part of EGI’s Corporate Associate program.

The appointee will participate in collaborative, bridge-building efforts between GG and EGI and will have offices at both locations. Communication and leadership skills as well as teamwork experience are important. GG and EGI share thriving research and academic programs in petroleum geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and allied areas of the geosciences. Opportunities for collaboration include the University’s Global Change and Sustainability Center, University of Utah Seismograph Stations, and the Utah Geological Survey.

We offer state-of-the-art facilities including the new Frederick A. Sutton Building and the EGI main facility in the adjacent University of Utah Research Park.”
