https://psu.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/PSU_Academic/job/University-Park-Campu...

he Department of Geosciences is part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) and, along with the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI), houses top-ranked research programs in geology, geophysics, geobiology, geochemistry, and interdisciplinary Earth systems research. Penn State’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics is home to similarly strong and relevant exoplanet research. Building on decades of involvement with NASA’s Astrobiology Program, Penn State recently formed the Consortium for Planetary and Exoplanetary Science and Technology, including the Planetary System Science Center (PSSC), as part of a commitment to expanding research in the planetary sciences. The successful candidate will be part of this growing and interdisciplinary community with opportunities for service and leadership to shape the future of the planetary fields and interdisciplinary research at Penn State.
The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences relies on the expertise, sensitivity, and commitment of an inclusive faculty to enhance diversity, seek equity, and create a welcoming environment within our community. We are committed to nurturing a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation. In welcoming every candidate, we strive to meet the needs of professional families by actively assisting with partner-placement needs.  For additional information, please contact Christopher H. House, Chair of the Search Committee, at [email protected].
