Coastal and Marine Science Faculty in Physical and Chemical Oceanography
The Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium for Research and Education (LUMCON) (www.lumcon.edu) seeks to hire at least one new Assistant Professor in the second phase of a multi-year faculty expansion. Candidates should have strong field-based research programs with notable research achievements, demonstration of or potential for funded research, and a commitment to education and outreach. Our research vessel fleet and proximity to the coast facilitate the use of a broad mix of traditional and innovative instruments and observational techniques to make measurements in many settings, from open-ocean to coastal regions. We are looking to hire a physical oceanographer and/or chemical oceanographer that addresses a wide range of fundamental problems in ocean and coastal sciences, as well as interdisciplinary research questions, using observations, modeling, theory, and laboratory experiment. Specifically, we seek a physical oceanographer with expertise in: 1) air-sea interactions, 2) decadal-scale climate variability, 3) coastal dynamics and circulation, and/or 4) oceanic scale circulation with an emphasis on the Gulf of Mexico and/or a chemical oceanographer with specialties of interest that include but are not limited to: 1) ocean acidification, 2) marine inorganic carbon chemistry, 3) carbon cycle-climate interactions. LUMCON represents a consortium of universities and colleges across the State of Louisiana. Preference will be given to candidates who can clearly demonstrate a research program that maximizes the locality and research assets of the DeFelice Marine Center and the strengths of the consortium. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2017. More information can be found at https://lumcon.edu/employment/.
