Faculty Position in Paleontology at Yale University

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Yale University is starting
a new multidisciplinary hiring initiative in earth science, which
includes the strengthening of its program in paleontology.  To this end,
we intend to fill a ladder faculty position in paleontology, at either
the junior or the senior level, starting September 2000.  We invite
applicants who will develop an internationally recognized research
program in collaboration with present and future Yale geoscientists and
bioscientists.  The position will include teaching at both the graduate
and undergraduate levels.  All subfields of paleontology will be
considered, including, but not limited to biogeochemistry,
biostratigraphy, event stratigraphy, evolutionary processes, functional
morpholgy, macroevolution, origin of major groups/body plans, marine
paleoecology, mass extinctions, paleobiogeography, paleoenvironmental
analysis, systematics, or taphonomy.  Closing date for applications is
January 15, 2000.

We encourage applicants from historically disadvantaged ethnic, racial,
and gender categories.  Yale University is an equal-opportunity
employer.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of
professional goals, and the names and addresses of three or more
referees to:  Paleontology Search Committee, c/o Professor Danny Rye,
Chair, Department of Geology and Geophysics, Yale University, P.O.  Box
