Assistant Professor Hard Rock Geosciences

The Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy School of Geosciences at the University of Oklahoma (OU) invites applications for a tenure-track position in hard rock geosciences at the rank of Assistant Professor. The candidate must hold a Ph.D. in a related field at the time of appointment and exhibit strong research and teaching potential. The candidate is expected to establish an innovative externally funded research program, build collaborations within and outside the School, and work with colleagues and students to strengthen our community, as described in OU’s Lead On, University strategic plan. We encourage applications from scholars with a broad range of approaches to hard rock geosciences. In their application, candidates should highlight any connections to campus-wide collaborative research priorities addressing pressing societal needs in critical minerals resources, hydrogen energy storage, and/or carbon capture and underground storage. We welcome demonstration of other linkages to OU’s Research Strategic Verticals (Energy and Environmental Sustainability, for example). The candidate will serve as a primary instructor of an undergraduate course in igneous and metamorphic petrology, contribute to undergraduate general education teaching, as well as develop and teach upper level undergraduate and graduate courses within their area of expertise.

The School of Geosciences is Proud to Become an AGU Bridge Partner Institute

Joining a network of national doctoral-granting institutions, we are committed to the principles underlying the Bridge Program. The AGU Bridge Program was launched in 2019 to increase the number of underrepresented minority (URM) students (defined in this project as African American, Hispanic American, and Native American) in earth and space science graduate programs. Prospective URM graduate students can visit the AGU Bridge program website ( or reach out to Dr. Junle Jiang at for more details.
