Assistant Professor of Chemical Oceanography (id:51940)

Statement of the Job :
The University of Maine invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the broad field of Chemical Oceanography, a nine-month (academic year) position with teaching and research responsibilities of 50:50, beginning in the Fall, 2019. The School of Marine Sciences has vibrant Oceanography, Marine Biology, Aquaculture, and Marine Policy programs with faculty and students based on the main campus in Orono (https://umaine.edu/marine/), at the Darling Marine Center on the mid-coast of Maine (https://dmc.umaine.edu/), and at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (https://www.gmri.org/) in Portland, Maine. This position is a part of the University of Maine?s investment in the Signature and Emerging Areas of Excellence program (https://umaine.edu/areas/marine-sciences/).
The successful applicant will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous research program on the ocean system that could range from focused topics basic to the discipline to ecosystems analyses. The candidate's research should enhance the education of both Ph.D. and M.S. graduate students as well as undergraduates, and classroom teaching should combine effective classical and innovative techniques that integrate current oceanographic research into course materials. There is a strong expectation that the office and laboratory space for this position will be located at the well-equipped UMaine coastal marine laboratory, the Darling Marine Center. The successful candidate will teach a core graduate course in Chemical Oceanography, contribute to other graduate and undergraduate courses at both the Orono campus and at the Darling Marine Center, and fulfill a broader service role in both academic, departmental, and public forums.
