Research Scientist III Geologic Mapping Open on 02/08/2022
Job description below. For additional details and to apply online: https://arizona.csod.com/ux/ats/careersite/4/home/requisition/8694?c=ari...
The Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) invites applications for a Research Scientist to join our mineral resources and bedrock geology team. This is an exciting opportunity for a field-oriented geologist interested in conducting geologic mapping in geologically and physically challenging environments. The successful candidate will contribute expertise in one or more of the following subdisciplines: igneous/metamorphic petrology, structural geology, economic geology, geo/thermochronology, geochemistry, physical volcanology, or regional geology. The new Research Scientist will participate in the AZGS geologic mapping program jointly funded by the AZGS and the USGS through the STATEMAP program. The AZGS geologic mapping program takes advantage of Arizona’s long field season (October to May) with the summer months focused on map compilation, report writing, and sample analysis. Staff typically participate in additional projects based on research expertise and project needs. Key technical skills for a successful candidate include the ability to conduct geologic mapping (including structural and stratigraphic analysis), interpret diverse dataset such borehole data, geo/thermochronologic data, and geochemistry, and synthesize information in a GIS environment. The successful candidate will be a scientist who has strong interpersonal skills, can work collaboratively, and can communicate their science effectively with other researchers, public and private stakeholders, and members of the public to further our understanding of Arizona’s natural resources. AZGS staff scientists are expected to participate in AZGS field investigations and conduct office-based data compilations that will lead to the production of high-quality datasets, maps, reports, scientific papers, and presentations – all of which will help provide the foundation of future funding proposals. Please note that we ask for a copy of a geologic map that was produced by the candidate as lead author or major contributing author, with area of mapping responsibility specified and full citation provided. This can be a published or unpublished stand-alone geologic map or a figure in a report, article, thesis, or dissertation. Additionally, please include a statement of research interests and plans, laying out a vision of complementary or new research avenues that would contribute to the mission of AZGS.
Research Scientist Open on 10/19/2021 -- FILLED
The Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) is hiring a Research Scientist to join our growing basin analysis team who aims to unravel the potential of Arizona’s basins for subsurface resources and carbon storage feasibility. The new Research Scientist will be responsible for assisting with AZGS research efforts in basin-wide studies utilizing stratigraphic, structural, and geophysical methods as applied to carbon dioxide and hydrogen sequestration and hydrogeologic investigations in deep sedimentary basins. We are looking for candidates with specializations in one or more of the following subdisciplines: basin analysis, stratigraphy, sedimentology, geophysics, structural geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, and carbon sequestration. Key technical skills for a successful candidate include the ability to conduct geologic mapping (including stratigraphic and structural analysis), interpret diverse data such borehole lithology, laboratory-derived analytical data, and groundwater information, synthesize information in a GIS environment, and ideally conduct or assist with geophysical surveys. The successful candidate will be a scientist who has strong interpersonal skills, can work collaboratively, and can communicate their science effectively with other researchers, public and private stakeholders, and members of the public to further our understanding of Arizona’s natural resources. AZGS staff scientists are expected to participate in AZGS field investigations, develop and write proposals, and conduct office-based data compilations, that will lead to the production of high-quality datasets, maps, reports, scientific papers, and presentations.
