The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a professorship in Paleoclimate Sedimentology, to be based in the Institute of Earth Sciences (ISTE).

We are looking for an excellent sedimentologist who focuses on the reconstruction of past climate changes (including sedimentary, paleoclimate, biological and paleoceanography changes) at geological timescales using the stratigraphic and sedimentary record. We seek a candidate who can provide an innovative interpretation of sedimentary archives, using laboratory, and field techniques and reconstructing Earth system history. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in geology, a strong commitment to field-based research and a willingness to contribute to field-based teaching.

The successful candidate will actively participate in the research activities of the Institute of Earth Sciences, will teach in the Bachelor of Geosciences and Environment and in relevant Masters taught by the FGSE, and will supervise masters and doctoral students.

Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level (tenure track). However, exceptionally, we will consider outstanding candidates for direct appointment to the Associate or Ordinary Professor level, notably if this corresponds with our equal opportunity objectives.

The application should include a cover letter (max 0.5 page), a full Curriculum Vitae, a research statement (max. 4 pages), a teaching statement (max. 2 pages), PDFs of the three most significant publications, and the names and contact information of five referees.
