Four Tenure Track Positions at Florida State University


Over the next 2 years, we will hire 3 assistant professors and one full
professor as part of the FSU cluster hire initiative "Extreme
Environments" (http://pathways.fsu.edu/faculty/geeo/ ). The positions
will be placed in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry,
Geological Sciences and Biological Sciences. We are interested but  not
limited to candidates in the following areas:

● Marine and Environmental Chemistry, Biogeochemistry, Chemical
Biology, or Analytical Chemistry applied to Marine Environments
● Geophysics and Marine Geology
● Biology/Microbiology/Ecology/Genomics of deep 
sea fauna of cold seep environments

This cluster will focus on exploration and study of marine environments
characterized by unusual conditions, e.g. extreme temperatures, solute
or gas concentrations or hydrodynamic stress. The proximity of FSU to
the Gulf of Mexico with its abundant oil and gas seeps, authigenic
carbonate deposits, asphalt flows, brine lakes and gas-hydrate bearing
sediments provides unique opportunities for this research and exciting

Please send a CV and statements of research and teaching interests, and
names of 3 references via email (pdf) to Jeff Chanton
(jchanton from fsu.edu).

This initiative is supported by the facilities of the National High
Magnetic Field Laboratory, the Center for Ocean-Atmosphere Prediction
Studies and the FSU Coastal and Marine Laboratory. For further
information contact Jeff Chanton or Markus Huettel. jchanton from fsu.edu,
mhuettel from ocean.fsu.edu. Applications should be 
received by 12/01/08 to receive full consideration. 

FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
