FACULTY POSITIONS AT SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY, UC SAN DIEGO
Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UC San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invites applications for four professorial positions listed below. We seek motivated, broad-thinking scientist/educators to establish vigorous research programs and provide intellectual leadership in their fields 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. For full consideration,
please apply by January 8, 2018.

Trace Gases in the Atmosphere: We seek outstanding candidates
for a position to be filled at the Associate or Full Professor
level, although Assistant level appointment may also be considered.
We seek applicants with interests in quantifying sources and sinks
of atmospheric trace gases on global and regional scales as they
particularly affect anthropogenic climate change and other
large-scale environmental issues. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to: inverse modeling of source and sink
distributions based on atmospheric observations, innovative methods
for measuring greenhouse gases and stratospheric ozone depleting
substances in the regional and global atmosphere, and large-scale
studies of industrial and biogenic gases based on atmospheric
observations. Candidates will be evaluated in part on the basis of
their potential to assume leadership of the Scripps component of
the international Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment
(AGAGE). For full consideration, please apply by January 8,

Associate and/or Full Professor: http://apptrkr.com/1128628
Low-Temperature Geochemistry: We seek outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in low-temperature geochemistry. We are interested in candidates who will build a program of laboratory and field studies of international standing in low-temperature geochemical applications which strengthen the research portfolio of SIO and UC San Diego. The potential for academic excellence, rather than research area, will be the principal criterion for selection. Appropriate areas for specialization could span a wide range of surficial processes in the marine and terrestrial environments. The candidate's area of research could include but is not limited to: sediment geochemistry, fluid geochemistry, paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, geochronology, fluid-rock interaction, low-temperature geochemical cycles, trace-element geochemistry, geochemical proxy development, or surficial inorganic geochemical process in the cryosphere, weathering systems, anthropological contexts, and the fossil record. For full consideration, please apply by January 31, 2018.
Assistant Professor: http://apptrkr.com/1128629
Human Health and the Oceans: We seek outstanding candidates for
a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position with a
history of novel research activities at the intersection of ocean
sciences and human health. Research into Human Health and the
Oceans (HHO) is inherently multidisciplinary, and we will consider
applicants from a broad range of fields including but not limited
to: natural products drug discovery, genomics, microbiome,
biosynthesis, chemical ecology, biogeography, marine model
organisms, biomaterials, and environmental toxicology. The
successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong
extramurally supported research program that integrates with and
aids the growth of existing HHO research at SIO and UC San Diego,
in particular at the Center for Marine Biotechnology and
Biomedicine. (Documentation of strong interest and any history of
achievement in mentoring undergraduate, graduate, or postdocs is
required, commensurate with rank and experience.) Joint
appointments with other UCSD departments may be possible for
appropriate candidates. For full consideration, please apply by
January 8, 2018.
Assistant Professor: http://apptrkr.com/1128630
Associate Professor: http://apptrkr.com/1128631
Ph.D., or equivalent degree, in a relevant field is required at the time of application. Depending on level of appointment, strong potential for or previous development of a vigorous, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program and associated scholarly impact, together with 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.
Each position requires a separate application submission. Current Assistant level candidates with strong academic and research profiles are also encouraged to apply separately at the Associate level, if available.
