Forwarded job announcement from Zhigang Peng, Georgia Tech:

The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Georgia Tech invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in solid-earth geosciences. We are seeking candidates interested in a range of topics that complement our existing strengths: tectonophysics, electric field methods, quantitative geomorphology, rock mechanics, physical petrology, seismology, geodynamics, geodesy, volcanology, and processes related to geologic hazards. We are particularly interested in candidates that incorporate field-based research with numerical and/or laboratory studies. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level are sought, although outstanding individuals at all levels will be considered. We seek individuals who are interested in working in a dynamic interdisciplinary academic and research environment that includes geophysics, planetary sciences, geochemistry and geobiology, atmospheric chemistry and dynamics, oceanography, and paleoclimatology.

Georgia Tech, consistently a top ranked educational/research institution, is undergoing growth in earth and planetary sciences. The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences currently has 29 faculty members and 93 graduate students, and has excellent facilities in the 265,000 square-foot Environmental Science and Technology Building.
