UCSC Ocean Sciences Dept. Invites Applications for Two Tenure-track Positions

The Ocean Sciences Department of the University of California, Santa Cruz
(UCSC) continues expansion of its programs and invites applications for
two tenure-track positions at the assistant professor level effective Fall
2000.  We are interested in candidates in the following two areas.

Coastal Physical Oceanography.  We seek a physical oceanographer with a
research focus on coastal processes.  Research interests could include
continental shelf circulation and upwelling dynamics; boundary layer
mixing; cross-shelf transport; shelf-slope exchange; and eastern boundary
current processes.  The individual should have the ability to use
numerical, analytical, and observational tools.  The desire to focus on
interdisciplinary research problems is essential, and the ability to
develop an interdisciplinary field program is preferred.  Teaching
responsibilities will require this individual to have considerable breadth
in physical oceanography with an especially good physical/mathematical
understanding of global ocean processes and their role in climate change.

Marine Organic Biogeochemistry/Chemical Oceanography.  We are interested
in a marine organic biogeochemist/chemical oceanographer who studies
organic compounds in the ocean and/or marine sediments.  Research
interests could range from investigating specific classes of organic
compounds in the modern water column to investigating how the signals of
modern oceanographic processes are incorporated in the marine sedimentary
record. This person should have strong analytical chemistry capabilities
using novel analytical techniques and approaches to address questions in
marine organic biogeochemistry of global significance, as well as breadth
in the understanding of ocean biogeochemistry.

RANK:  Assistant Professor, Step I to Step III

SALARY: $44,300 - $49,400 (9-month basis), depending on qualifications and
experience

Successful candidates will be expected to develop vigorous research
programs including the supervision of graduate students.  Our program
emphasizes collaborative, interdisciplinary interactions with fellow
department colleagues and with faculty in other science departments on
campus.  In addition, there is the potential for candidates to develop
strong, complementary research ties with neighboring oceanographic
institutions in the Monterey Bay region, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium
Research Institute (MBARI) and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS).
Successful candidates should have the desire and capability to teach
regularly at all levels within the University, including general interest
courses for lower division undergraduates, more specialized courses
appropriate for upper-division undergraduates, and graduate courses in
their areas of expertise.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:  Ph.D. (or equivalent) in oceanography or related
discipline preferred by June 30, 2000 (must be in hand no later than June
30, 2001), demonstrated potential for excellence as a researcher, and
commitment to and talent for teaching at undergraduate and graduate
levels.


POSITIONS AVAILABLE:  Fall Quarter 2000, contingent upon availability of
funding.

APPLY TO:  Send full curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests,
a statement of teaching interests, and the names and addresses (including
phone number, fax number, and e-mail address) of four referees to:

Diana Joy Austin
