We had a number of retirements at the Survey in 2012. We're hiring talented new people to join our group. This is an exciting time as we retool and reshape. We hope you'll take this opportunity to grow with us.
Quaternary geologist (tenure track)
This position is for a person with a background in glacial geology, geochemistry, geochronology, geomorphology and/or engineering geology to be applied to the study of Wisconsin’s glacial deposits. The successful candidate will collaborate with academic institutions within Wisconsin and beyond, as well as with local, state, and federal agencies that have interests in geology, hydrogeology, and mineral resources.
Sedimentary geologist (tenure track)
We’re looking for someone with a strong research background in the areas of sequence stratigraphy, sedimentology, and geochemistry of siliciclastic systems. Knowledge of the Cambrian geology of the Midwest is a plus. A background in geologic mapping and integrated field-based and subsurface studies will also be advantageous. We're actively doing research in the areas of carbonate sequence stratigraphy, stable isotope geochemistry, and fluvial sedimentology; this new position offers the opportunity to collaborate and to expand research into new areas.
Why work at the Survey?
The WGNHS conducts earth-science surveys, field studies, and research. Our academic atmosphere, focus on research and outreach, and compact size set the Survey apart from most geological research organizations. In addition, our 20,000 sq. ft. core repository provides a unique research laboratory for studying Wisconsin’s rich geologic history. We are an AA/EEO employer.
