The University of South Florida College of Marine Science, located in Saint Petersburg, Florida, is actively seeking to fill two open rank positions in oceanography:

  • Geological Oceanographer whose research complements the strengths of the current faculty. They seek a hypothesis-driven scientist who uses a process-based approach to understand problems central to the ocean and its connections to the Earth systems. The candidate will use innovative techniques to investigate the effects of environmental change on the evolution of the stratigraphic record over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales. For questions regarding the available position please contact Dr. Brad Rosenheim, [email protected] or Tim Trowbridge, [email protected] (727-553-3375). Applications must be submitted through [email protected] Direct link to job posting can be found here.
  • Chemical Oceanographer who will contribute to an understanding of the ocean/climate system, from basic disciplinary topics to ecosystems analyses. Qualified candidates will employ modern tools of multi-disciplinary science to understand regional and global issues critical to the ocean system. For information regarding the available position, please contact Dr. Kristen Buck, [email protected] or Tim Trowbridge, [email protected] (727-553-3375). Applications must be submitted through [email protected] Direct link to job posting can be found here.

Candidates for both positions will be selected on the basis of their potential to conduct transformative research within their discipline, their productivity with respect to peer reviewed publications, acquisition of external research funding, and a potential for outstanding mentoring and teaching. Successful candidates for both positions would be expected to contribute to core courses in oceanography and teach specialty courses at the graduate level.

Minimum Requirements: Must have a PhD in a relevant scientific discipline at the time of hire with research experience in the respective fields (Chemical Oceanography or Geological Oceanography).

Preferred qualifications: Applicants should be capable of interacting with colleagues in multi-disciplinary oceanographic research.

Application procedures: Apply online at [email protected] (Geological Oceanographer: here and Chemical Oceanographer: here). Please submit a cover letter stating qualifications. Please append research and teaching statements, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three referees. Position is open until filled, however, priority review of applications will begin by August 1, 2018. Appointment is anticipated to commence August 1, 2019.
