    The School of Earth Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applicants for a newly established tenure-track position in Hydrogeology/Earth Fluids. Information about the School of Earth Sciences can be found at

    We are seeking applicants with a doctoral degree and a wide-range of interests in the flow of fluids related to energy and environment. The candidate’s research interests should cut across and support the focus areas of the School’s Strategic Plan: Energy Sciences, Deep Earth-Deep Time, Measuring a Changing Planet, and Climate and Water and the University’s Energy and Environment Discovery Theme. Applicants will have skills and interests in the subsurface movement of oil, gas, and/or water. These interests could include determining reservoir/aquifer properties, multiphase and variable-density fluid flow, solute/heat transport, and environmental impacts of resource extraction. An ability to characterize small-scale phenomena to study larger-scale processes is desired. Examples of advanced capabilities could be use of isotopic tracers to examine flow paths hydrocarbons, contaminants, and/or groundwater; geophysical/fluid flow techniques in support of modeling; impact of petroleum/gas extraction on ground-water quality; and novel techniques and modeling for the development of unconventional and conventional oil and gas resources, and flow regimes.

    The successful applicant is expected to have a developing record of research achievement through publications. The new faculty member will contribute to teaching in our graduate programs and in our undergraduate curriculum. Our Bachelor of Science program contains four tracks, geological sciences, Earth system sciences, geophysics, and petroleum geology. The new hire is also expected to develop a research program and generate external funds. The position will be filled at the rank of Assistant Professor. Applications will be reviewed beginning November 1, 2012. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2013.

    Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and statements of research interests and teaching philosophies to:
    Hydrogeology/Earth Fluids Search Committee
    School of Earth Sciences
    275 Mendenhall Laboratory
    125 S. Oval Mall
    Columbus, OH 43210-1398

    Email applications as a single, compiled pdf will also be accepted at
    The candidate should provide names of at least three references who may be asked to write letters of recommendation.
