Assistant Professor, University of California, Berkeley, USA

The Department of Earth and Planetary Science at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for an Assistant Professor Faculty position. We seek candidates from all areas of earth and planetary science, with an emphasis on either (1) earth and/or planetary surface and sedimentary processes in the present or past; (2) climate science including oceans, the cryosphere, and atmosphere on all time scales. Candidates whose research falls into one of these broad areas or their disciplinary interfaces are especially encouraged to apply. All candidates, regardless of the field in earth and planetary science, will be considered.

The Department is dedicated to advancing equity and accessibility for all who are or wish to be, members of our community. The Department is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off for family reasons (e.g., caring for children, the disabled, or the elderly), or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia (e.g., in professional or industry service).
