The Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium for Research and Education (LUMCON; https://lumcon.edu) seeks to hire two new Assistant Professors in the second phase of multi-year faculty expansion. We invite well-qualified coastal or marine scientists, regardless of discipline, to apply. We are interested in scientists that address a wide range of fundamental problems in ocean and coastal sciences, as well as interdisciplinary research questions, using observations, modelling, theory and/or field and laboratory experiments. Candidates should have notable research achievements, demonstration of funded research, or potential for funded research, and a strong commitment to education and outreach. 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 complements and extends the strengths of LUMCON and the consortium.

The LUMCON DeFelice Marine Center, located at the upper end of Terrebonne Bay in the Mississippi River deltaic plain between the Atchafalaya and Mississippi rivers, is in close proximity to numerous habitats including extensive marshes, estuaries, rivers large and small, and the open Gulf of Mexico. The Center facilities include a seawater system, multiple wet labs, a racetrack flume, state-of-the art environmental chambers, extensive aquaculture and experimental tank facilities, a marsh mesocosm facility, and a fleet of research vessels.  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. In addition, LUMCON represents a consortium of universities and colleges across the State of Louisiana. 

The position carries a 9-month salary. The initial appointment is for three years; following a review, the contract may be renewed for three more years.  A six-year review similar to tenure is conducted for promotion to Associate Professor, but LUMCON is not a tenure-granting institution.

Submit electronic copies of 1) a letter of interest; 2) curriculum vita; 3) research statement; 4) education and outreach statement; 5) a statement of how your research program would use the location of LUMCON's Defelice Marine Center and its assets, develop collaborations with faculty at both the Marine Center and at consortium member universities, and collaboratively utilize the resources of the consortium member universities; and 6) the name, affiliation, address, phone and email address of three references to hr@lumcon.edu with the subject LUMCON FACULTY CLUSTER HIRE. Specific questions about the positions can be directed to Dr. Craig R. McClain, Executive Director, cmcclain@lumcon.edu (985-851-2801).

Review of applicants will begin September 15, 2018 and continue until the positions are filled.

LUMCON is an AA/EO employer.
