Faculty position(s) in Marine Sciences at UConn

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut (UConn) invites applications for four positions at the level of Assistant Professor (#17334, 494836) and two positions at the Associate or Full Professor level (#17339, 494839) as part of a cluster hire in the Environment and Human Interactions. We seek a range of scholars on subjects broadly related to climate change, pollution, water supply, policy, and society’s response. Applicants may be hired in the following departments: Anthropology, Chemistry, Geography, Marine Sciences, Political Science, Public Policy, and/or Sociology. 

Our planet is undergoing changes that radically affect human experience and society. Through the initiative on the Environment and Human Interactions, UConn seeks scholars committed to advancing knowledge about critical issues and developing interdisciplinary strategies to address environmental and societal harm. This cluster hire will promote meaningful engagement among physical, natural, and social scientists through the potential for collaborative research, teaching, and outreach initiatives.

As part of the cluster hire, the UConn Department of Marine Sciences invites applications for one or two 9-month, tenure-track position(s) as Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in areas related to global change and human alterations on marine systems.  Specific areas of research of particular interest include (but are not restricted to): sea level rise, ocean dynamics and circulation, coastal processes, biogeochemical cycles, ocean acidification and deoxygenation, marine biodiversity and conservation, marine microbial processes, and contaminants and their effects on marine environments. The successful candidate(s) will be expected to contribute to teaching in the undergraduate Marine Sciences major and graduate Oceanography degree. Applicants should provide detailed explanation of how they would engage with and take advantage of the UConn CLAS cross disciplinary cluster hire through collaborative teaching, research, and/or outreach initiatives.
