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

The FGSE is looking for an excellent candidate interested in the tectonophysics of mountain building processes to strengthen and complement the research foci of the FGSE on orogenic processes and geocomputing. The ideal candidate will use various geophysical methods such as seismology, gravimetry, and/or remote sensing to investigate mountain belts, preferentially focusing on the Alps and the Himalayas. FGSE is particularly interested in candidates who integrate field observations and computational models. Areas of interests will cover the role of tectonic activity on lithospheric deformation processes, including the interactions between sub-surface and surface processes, such as those that affect human environments. 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 Associate Professor level. However, exceptionally, FGSE will consider outstanding candidates for direct appointment to the Full Professor level, notably if this corresponds with their equal opportunity objectives.
