Assistant professor (tenure-track) in subsurface imaging

Commencing on 1.1.2019
Applicants are expected to have international research experience in the field of subsurface imaging using different geophysical techniques, with a preference for seismics. Some first experience in acquiring external funding and carrying out externally-funded projects is expected. The candidate’s research activity is proven by projects and publications as well as a broad interest in general scientific questions. The University places particular emphasis on the quality of teaching and therefore requests that applicants provide details of their teaching experience and objectives.

The University of Hamburg seeks to increase the proportion of women in teaching and research and we therefore especially encourage qualified female academics to apply.

Areas of Responsibility
The successful candidate is expected to carry out research in the area of subsurface Imaging with an emphasis on seismic methods. The candidate is expected to teach parts of the geophysics curriculum at undergraduate (BSc) as well as at graduate (MSc, PhD) levels.
Use of the applied geophysics equipment of the institute is desirable as well as the development of a new inversion methods which integrate different geophysical measurements in subsurface imaging. An integration of this expertise into climate research problems (e.g. CCS, permafrost monitoring, processes in glaciers during melting) is desired as well.

Cooperation with other national as well as international institutions is expected and the establishment of externally funded research programs should be initiated. Scientific team leadership and cooperation in the academic self-administration are expected.
