Job Opportunities

Cornell University is inviting applications for a faculty position in Critical Elements and Minerals Geoscience in the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department

The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University invites applications from all areas of geoscience working on fundamental Earth science questions related to the properties and processes of critical element sources, migration, concentration, and economic viability using field, analytical, experimental, and modeling approaches. Modern technological society depends on the sustainable extraction of critical elements hosted in geological materials and we face an unprecedented demand for these materials for the renewable energy transition, battery production, and global infrastructure development. We seek applicants in research areas that include, but are not limited to, the critical mineral record of deep fluids and hydrothermal circulation, economic geology and mineral deposit formation, low-grade and non-traditional ore deposits, and mechanisms for carbon storage with critical element recovery potential. The position is open to all ranks (tenured/tenure-track) and will be housed in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in the College of Engineering, with linkages to the Johnson School of Business, the Atkinson Center for Sustainability, Cornell Tech, and a wide range of multidisciplinary opportunities and top analytical facilities at EAS and across the university (Cornell High Energy Synchrotron SourceCornell Center for Material ResearchCornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility)
