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.
