Post-doc position in environmental geophysics at the University of Lausanne
The Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at the University of Lausanne has an opening for a postdoctoral research scientist. We welcome highly motivated and excellent applicants in environmental geophysics and associated disciplines. We are particularly interested in candidates developing innovative research in one of the following areas: (i) Bayesian theory and methodology applied to geophysical and hydrogeological systems (e.g., inversion, model selection, data assimilation, uncertainty quantification); (ii) deep learning and/or geostatistics for environmental and climate-related applications (e.g., proxy modeling or inversion); (iii) self-potential theory and applications related to biological and chemical processes in the critical zone. Details may be found here.

Full-Professor Faculty Positions at University of Tübingen, Germany

Professor of Near-Surface Geophysics:
The chosen candidate is expected to have expertise in observational geophysics and diverse geophysical imaging techniques near the Earth’s surface and critical zone. We seek persons who investigate terrestrial environmental change related to geologic, climate, and biologic processes. Teaching contributions will be in BSc and MSc level courses in solid Earth and Environmental Geophysics. Student instruction in field based geophysical techniques is expected, as is a MSc level course in advanced geophysics. 
Closing date for the applications is June 11, 2020. Click HERE for more information.

Editor: Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics
The Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) has a new opening for Editor of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG). JEEG is published quarterly and is a leading peer-reviewed scientific journal devoted specifically to the near surface geophysics community (Impact Factor: 1.52 –SCIMAGO, 1.39 -SCOPUS). JEEG welcomes manuscripts on new developments in near-surface geophysics applied to environmental, engineering, and mining issues, as well as novel case histories and descriptions of new equipment or software. Under the Editor’s leadership, JEEG regularly publishes special issues focused on topics of particular interest to the near-surface geophysics community. As examples, there have been JEEG special issues for airborne geophysics, agricultural geophysics, time domain electromagnetics, and unexploded ordnance (UXO). The position is expected to begin late summer 2020 to allow the new JEEG Editor to work with the existing JEEG Editor and transition to full responsibility for JEEG by January 2021. Please send a CV and cover letter detailing your interest in the position to staff@eegs.org. If you have questions please contact Barry Allred (Barry.Allred@usda.gov).


Editor-in-Chief: FastTIMES
The Environmental and Engineering Geophysics Society (EEGS) has a new opening for the position of FastTIMES Editor-in-Chief. FastTIMES is an electronic newsmagazine for the near-surface geophysical sciences, which has been published quarterly since 1998 and has a worldwide distribution. FastTIMES is devoted to showcasing novel uses of near-surface geophysics in a manner that is intended to be interesting to geophysicists as well as accessible to others who may be interested in using geophysics. Outreach to other geoscience and engineering professionals is an important, evolving focus for this newsmagazine. Responsibilities of the Editor-in-Chief include choosing special topics for future issues with the FastTIMES team of associate editors, soliciting content for industry and foundation news, compiling lists of upcoming short courses, workshops, and conferences related to near-surface geophysics, proofing all content, and working with the EEGS staff to publish each issue. Familiarity with Adobe InDesign CS6 or Adobe InDesign CC is desirable, but not mandatory. The position is expected to begin late summer 2020to allow the new FastTIMES Editor-in-Chief to work with the existing Editor-in-Chief and transition to full responsibility for FastTIMES by January 2021.
