Professorship of Geophysics *Department of Earth Sciences in association with St Cross College*

This is a newly established post in the Department of Earth Sciences and its purpose is to maintain and strengthen research and teaching in geophysics and to provide ongoing academic leadership in this core discipline. Geophysics is currently benefiting from a great expansion in global and regional data sets and from the advancement of computational modelling techniques. The department enjoys an internationally leading position in the field through research groups in seismology, geodesy, earthquake studies, marine geophysics and numerical modelling of earth processes. While applications in these areas are welcome, applications in all areas of geophysics, broadly defined, are encouraged.

The start date is 1 October 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter. Please see the further particulars at for more details about the post and for full instructions before making an application.
Applications, including a covering letter and full CV, and naming three referees should be received no later than *Monday 12 December 2011*, by Dr Gwen Booth, Personnel Officer, Senior Appointments at
