The Harold Hamm School of Geology & Geological Engineering
Has Two Job Openings!
We are searching to fill the school's first endowed chair, Harold Hamm Distinguished Professor of Petroleum Geology. For that position, we seek someone with a proven track record in academia, industry, or both, and expect to hire them at the Associate/Professor level, with tenure. The endowed position was instituted as part of an initiative associated with a gift and grant from Mr. Harold Hamm and Continental Resources, and the North Dakota State Industrial Commission Oil and Gas Research Program, to the College of Engineering and Mines.
We are also searching for a geological engineer (tenure track) at the Assistant/Associate level. For this position, we are flexible regarding area of specialization and past experience.
If appropriate, we invite you to consider applying for either position or to suggest potential candidates. We hope to fill the positions quickly and, if the right people are found, may do so by end of December 2013.
These are exciting times for our department. We have more majors than any time in the recent past, and we have about 40 graduate students, including 10 Ph.D. students. We have new student scholarship funds and we are purchasing several new major pieces of research equipment.
Hiring a Distinguished Professor, and an additional geological engineer, will help us continue to move forward but are only the first of many major changes that are occurring in and around our department.
Next door, the new Petroleum Engineering program has added 4 faculty positions during the last year and they, too, are searching for someone to occupy an endowed chair. And, in the not too distant future, we expect to see a new building built to connect Leonard Hall and the Engineering building next door. The new building will be devoted to energy resources and energy engineering.
To apply for the Geological Engineering Assistant/Associate position:
Applicants should submit, in PDF format, a brief letter of application describing their qualifications for the position, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching and research interests, and the names and addresses of three references as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reference letters and credential materials (such as degree certificates and transcripts) will be required for finalist candidates.
