Department of Marine Biology and Ecology, University of Miami

Marine Invertebrate Biologist    The Department of Marine Biology and Ecology, MBE (link) at the   University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric   Science, RSMAS (link), invites applications for a tenure-track position  in Marine Invertebrate Biology as part of a broad strategic plan   involving 15 faculty hires over the coming few years. This will be a   9-month guaranteed salary position and is intended to be at the rank of   Assistant Professor but exceptional applicants at other ranks will be   considered. The anticipated start date is August 2015.

  We are searching for an outstanding candidate working on any marine   invertebrate group and questions. Potential research areas include, but   are not restricted to: comparative or developmental physiology,   organism-environment interactions, toxicology, climate change impacts,   ecological and/or evolutionary genomics, or ecology. Preference will be   given to applicants applying a broad range of techniques and approaches   with strong potential for within and among department collaborations,   as well as interactions with our Coral Gables (link) and Medical   campuses (link).

   Research interests of the faculty in MBE span, in no particular order,   fisheries/population level biology; coastal and coral reef biology,   ecology and conservation; organismal biology; marine health and   biomedicine, and biological oceanography. The successful applicant will   be housed in the recently inaugurated 85,000 sf Marine Technology and   Life Sciences Seawater Complex (link) that hosts state-of-the-science   biological and chemical labs for seawater research and hands-on   teaching. In addition, the hire would have access to marine   invertebrate culture facilities associated with our NIH-supported   National Resource for Aplysia (link if there is one), as well as the   extensive collections of our Marine Invertebrate Museum (link). The   hire will also have access to on-campus research vessels, including the   R/V Walton Smith (a 96-foot research catamaran), multiple smaller boats   (link), Broad Key (a 63-acre island recently acquired as a field   station for marine research and education (link), as well as a pool   currently under construction for the training of scientific divers.    The successful candidate will contribute to teaching and mentoring   students at the undergraduate and graduate level, and is expected to   teach Invertebrate Zoology in our top-ranked Marine Sciences   undergraduate (B.S.) program (link), and related courses in our   graduate programs (Ph. D., M. S. and Professional Masters: link).

The RSMAS campus is located on Virginia Key, a unique community of   marine research and educational institutions 15 minutes from downtown   Miami, Florida. Approximately $250M per year is invested in marine   science and education on Virginia Key, including RSMAS, the NOAA   Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, the NOAA   Southeast Fisheries Science Center, the Miami Seaquarium, and the   Maritime and Science Technology Academy (MAST).

Applicants must have a Ph. D. in a relevant field, appropriate   postdoctoral training, and the ability to establish and maintain a   vigorous, extramurally-funded research program. A complete application   includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, separate statements of   research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information   of at least three references.  The position will remain opened until   filled, but to receive full consideration, applications should be   received by November 15, 2014. We anticipate conducting interviews for   the positions in January 2015. Inquiries should be directed to   MBEsearch from rsmas.miami.edu

The University of Miami is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and we   encourage qualified individuals to apply regardless of race, gender,   disability, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or   gender expression.
