The Virginia Institute of Marine Science, US, invite applications for one tenure-eligible Assistant Professor position in the School of Marine Science. The position is expected to begin in spring or summer 2016.
The successful candidate will develop and maintain an active research and publication program, advise graduate students and teach core and advanced courses, participate in College and VIMS/SMS governance, and provide service to the Commonwealth. Candidates who are prepared to engage in cross-disciplinary research, teaching and service will be especially welcome.
The successful candidates will hold an earned doctorate (Ph.D.) or terminal degree by the time of the appointment in Marine Biology, Biological Oceanography, Marine Ecology, or a related discipline. Candidates must have a strong publication record commensurate with experience, and demonstrated potential to establish an active research program and provide excellent graduate student teaching and mentoring. Preference will be given to candidates with research interests in the physiological ecology of marine organisms in the context of global and environmental change; individual interests could span from local to global scales and across multiple levels of biological organization. Areas of particular interest include physiological, molecular, and/or ecological responses of marine organisms, including marine plankton or benthic macro- fauna or flora, as well as communities and ecosystems to natural and anthropogenic stressors in the context of climate or other environmental change.
For full consideration, complete application materials are due by June 19, 2015; however, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
