Due Date

California Lutheran University is seeking an Adjunct Professor to tech Intro Physical Geology Lab during the Spring 2023 semester. For more details or to apply, see https://careers.callutheran.edu/postings/8811

ASAP
Green Geophysics

Green Geophysics is actively seeking individuals to work on the U.S. Magnetotelluric Array (MT Array) – see https://www.greengeophysics.com/mtarray. This position as staff geophysicist involves extensive field work including the geophysical tasks of installing & extracting long-period MT instrumentation and evaluating data, in addition to coordinating logistics and working with landowners. Trouble shooting is not unusual. Stations are on a 70 km spacing, so there is a lot of driving giving a road-warrior aspect to the job. A crew of two people typically works six days/week for 4-6 weeks between breaks. Essential requirements are a love and curiosity of the Earth, and the ability to work outdoors in all conditions and keep a good attitude. The ideal candidate is a recent graduate in the Earth Sciences who would benefit from a year immersed in data. A background in geophysics is helpful, but not required. US citizenship is required. A one-year commitment is requested. The MT Array is currently underway in the southern USA and will be moving through OK & TX in 2023. Interested parties should contact Louise Pellerin, pellerin@greengeophysics.com
