The Institute of Geosciences at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany, invites applications for a tenured Full Professorship (W3) in the Faculty of Chemistry and Geosciences.

The Institute of Geosciences comprises the fields of geology, geophysics and mineralogy and emphasizes a close cooperation between the various fields of Earth Sciences (sedimentology, structural geology, applied geology, hydrogeology, mineralogy, geochemistry, geophysics, and applied geophysics) in teaching and research. The institute is well equipped with an array of mineralogical (TEM, DEGAS, XRF, XRD, EMP, AFM) and hydrogeochemical (LA-ICP-MS, ICP-OES, GC-MS) facilities.

We are seeking applications from candidates with an established international reputation in the field of analytical mineralogy and a strong commitment to teaching on the undergraduate and graduate levels of geosciences, biogeosciences, and material sciences. The successful candidate is expected to develop new research initiatives in mineralogy and to promote cooperative interdisciplinary research within the framework of earth sciences, environmental sciences, microbiology and material sciences. He/she is expected to participate in the Jena school for microbial communication (JSMC), funded by the German Excellence Initiative. The successful candidate will also be responsible for the historically grown mineral museum.

Candidates should send a complete application including up to 5 selected publications until the 31th of January 2008 to:
