POSITION OF PROFESSOR IN SURFACE GEOLOGY AND GEOCHEMISTRY
The Powell Center seeks projects that address development and testing of important Earth system science ideas and theories using existing data, cutting-edge analysis of Earth system information, and use of sound science in policy and management decisions. Proposals that consider and address National Science Foundation Big Ideas are also welcome. Proposals are evaluated for scientific merit, novel approaches, and rationale for conducting investigative activities at the Powell Center.
Nature Communications is are hiring two associate or senior editors to join their Earth team to work out of offices in either London, Shanghai, New York, or Berlin. Editorial experience is not required, and while postdoctoral research experience is preferred it is not essential. A thorough understanding of the fundamentals of the subject is key and an interest in areas beyond your speciality is required.

Dear Fellow Critical Zone Explorers!
We would like to ask for your views on the current challenges facing soil organic carbon research.
The Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory (SSHCZO) was established to investigate the form, function, and dynamics of the critical zone developed on sedimentary rocks in the Appalachian Mountains in central Pennsylvania. When first established, the SSHCZO encompassed only the Shale Hills catchment, a 0.08-km2 subcatchment within Shaver’s Creek watershed. The SSHCZO has now grown to include 120 km2 of the Shaver’s Creek watershed.
The University of Florida Water Institute Graduate Fellows Program (WIGF) is offering 5 to 6 PhD fellowships for interdisciplinary collaborative studies in hydrology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, microbial ecology, botany, ecosystem ecology, and coastal hydrodynamics of glaciers, pro-glacial landscapes, and coastal systems in Greenland. Fellows will form a cohort and will benefit from integrative activities to enhance interdisciplinary skills as well as expertise in environmental civics (i.e.

My department at Tulane is hiring a non-tenure-track teaching professor. The load is 3 classes per semester. This prof will be expected to teach the introductory environmental earth science course (~120 students, has a lab that is taught by TAs). Otherwise the focus of the other classes somewhat depends on the expertise and interest of the professor. I’m happy to take questions. Ad is below.
