The University of Oklahoma invites applications for a tenure track position in Geophysics at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. Departmental interests range from the deep lithosphere, through hydrocarbon exploration, to near surface geophysics. We search for a dynamic candidate to supervise students at all levels, and to conduct independent, externally funded research program in his/her field of expertise.

The candidate should hold a Ph.D. in Geophysics; have a demonstrated research record, and an interest in teaching undergraduate and mentoring graduate students in lithospheric and exploration geophysics. Salary, benefits, and start-up funds will be competitive and commensurate with experience. The ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics has a large, vibrant faculty with a broad range of research activities and strong ties to the petroleum industry. The student body includes about 150 undergraduates and 100 MS and PhD students. The Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy possesses extensive software and computing labs of PC and Linux platforms networked to our own Beowulf cluster and to the OU supercomputer center (OSCER). It hosts numerous industrial consortia, a research institute focused on seismic monitoring, and a new field campus in Colorado for field courses in geology and geophysics. The geophysics group conducts active research projects on several continents that are funded by NSF, industry, and foreign national institutes. The College maintains a comprehensive pool of geophysical equipment including GPR, seismic (active and passive), magnetic, and gravity instruments as well as extensive rock physics characterization laboratories. Through collaboration with industry, we have a suite of 3D seismic and microseismic data volumes that are used for teaching, algorithm calibration, seismic geomorphological analysis, crustal imaging, and a range of open source software for lithospheric-scale research.
