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
