December 10, 2009

Established in 2006, the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) is the focal point for earth and space science and engineering at Arizona State University, one of the largest and fastest growing institutions of higher learning in the United States. An essential part of the SESE mission is an effective integration of disciplines such as astrophysics, biogeochemistry, geology, geophysics, hydrology and engineering for scientific exploration.

Over the next two years, the School will be hiring a large number of faculty – at a variety of ranks – in order to build its capacity for transdisciplinary research and education in earth and space science and engineering. Several of these positions are of direct relevance to astrobiology, an area of longstanding interest at ASU. Faculty hired into these positions will have the opportunity to join the ASU Astrobiology Team.

Our hiring priorities are:

* Atmospheric and Climate Sciences
* Environmental Sensor Networks
* Extrasolar Planet Studies
* Molecular Geobiology
* Planetary Atmospheres
* Planetary Surface Processes
* Observational Cosmology
* Instrumentation Development

Application Deadline: December 15, 2009
