Marine Chemistry Assistant Professor Position at University of Miami
Assistant Professor in Marine Chemistry
The University of Miami’s Department of Ocean Sciences (OCE) invites exceptional candidates to apply for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor rank to complement existing programs on the chemistry of the ocean. Candidates working in chemical oceanography, biogeochemistry, and/or marine chemistry and conducting research with relevance to understanding fundamental processes and climate-relevant variability and impacts are welcome to apply. We are particularly interested in recruiting a sea-going observationalist. Current departmental strengths include: trace element chemistry; carbon and nutrient biogeochemistry; tracer oceanography; air-sea interactions; physical oceanography; marine physics. We conduct research throughout the global ocean, including polar and coastal environments, using state-of-the-art analytical techniques, computer models and remote sensing techniques.
We seek dynamic individuals who will establish internationally recognized, extramurally funded research programs while contributing to the teaching and service missions of RSMAS. The hire is expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor, but exceptional applicants at other ranks will be considered. A complete application will consist of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, separate statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The positions will remain opened until filled but to receive full consideration, applications should be received by November 15, 2014. We anticipate starting interviews for the positions in early January 2015. Target start date is Fall 2015.
Application packages should be emailed to Nicole Frisbie (firstname.lastname@example.org). Questions should be sent to Prof. Frank Millero (email@example.com) or Prof. Rana Fine (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) at the University of Miami (http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/) has undergone a significant reinvestment in its infrastructure and an administrative reorganization into five academic departments: Ocean Sciences; Marine Geosciences; Marine Biology and Ecology; Atmospheric Sciences; Marine Ecosystems and Society. Our strategic plan includes 16 faculty hires in the next few years, across all departments.
RSMAS main campus is located on Virginia Key, a unique community of marine research and educational institutions in Miami, Florida. Approximately $250M per year is invested in marine science and education on Virginia Key among RSMAS, the NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, the NOAA Southeast Fisheries Science Center, the Miami Sea Aquarium and the Maritime and Science Technology Academy (MAST).
The University of Miami is an Equal Opportunity Employer, which encourages applications from minority group members, women, individuals with a disability and veterans.
