Vacant positions

Associate Professor in Structural Geology and Tectonics


The Faculty of Earth Sciences (FES) in the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences at the University of Iceland seeks to fill a tenure-track position in the field of structural geology and tectonics.

We seek an individual with an outstanding track-record in research and a great potential for establishing a world-class research program as well as excellent teaching of structural geology and tectonics.

Field of work

  • Teaching in undergraduate and graduate geology courses, including subjects on structural geology and tectonics and related fields.
  • Establish a vigorous, externally funded research program, publish scholarly work, and advise graduate and undergraduate students.
  • Lead teaching and work of students in structural geology in the field and promote the increased interest of future geoscientists in acquiring basic knowledge as well as mastering the state-of-the-art methods in structural geology.
  • Establish international high-quality collaborative projects in structural geology and tectonics with reference to Iceland's geology. These projects should preferably focus on understanding brittle structures, faulting, dike emplacement and tectonics in basalt-dominated volcanic successions.
  • The research program should preferably combine high-quality fieldwork on structures and modelling of the physical processes that give rise to those structures.
