Assistant Professor of Marine Science
The Ocean Studies Department at Maine Maritime Academy invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Marine Science. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in oceanography or other marine related field by August 2018. The area of expertise is open, but an emphasis in chemical oceanography, marine environmental chemistry, marine geochemistry, or biogeochemical cycling is desired. The successful candidate will enthusiastically embrace working with undergraduates in classroom, laboratory and field settings. Teaching expectations may include undergraduate courses in introductory chemistry for science and non-science majors, marine geochemistry, organic chemistry and additional courses and electives dependent on the successful candidate’s area of expertise. Engaging, advising, and mentoring undergraduates in research is essential, as is full participation in, and service contribution to, a small collegial department. Candidates with demonstrated teaching excellence, commitment to undergraduate education, and research cruise experience are particularly encouraged to apply.
