2 tenure track Assistant Professor positions in Coastal Ecology/Biology. University of Central Florida (USA)

The Department of Biology at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invites applications for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions in Coastal Ecology/Biology. We seek broadly-trained,
collaborative coastal ecologists/biologists, who focus on coastal upland and/or nearshore (wetland, estuarine, or marine) systems or organisms that reside therein. Potential research areas include, but
are not restricted to: biogeochemistry, climate change, population and community ecology, conservation biology, ecosystem ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental physiology, habitat modeling, microbial ecology, phycology, and/or sea-level rise. Researchers who use innovative combinations of field, experimental, genomic and theoretical approaches are encouraged to apply. We strongly prefer candidates who can build within-department and interdisciplinary collaborations (e.g., with civil and environmental engineers, environmental chemists, mathematical modelers, etc).

The University of Central Florida is strategically investing in
interdisciplinary studies of Coastal Systems. This year we are
searching for a cluster of five tenure-track faculty in Biology (2),
Chemistry (1), and Civil Engineering (2). Those who are hired should
be strongly rooted in one of these disciplines and, ideally, also be
interested in interdisciplinary collaborative research, and possibly
teaching, in one or more of the other fields. These hires are part of
200 new faculty positions to be hired university-wide in 2015-16, with
more hires anticipated in coming years.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. from an accredited institution in a
relevant field, appropriate postdoctoral training and a demonstrated
ability or strong potential to establish and maintain a vigorous,
extramurally funded research program. Successful candidates will
contribute to teaching and mentoring students in our undergraduate and
graduate programs (see http://biology.cos.ucf.edu for departmental
details) and may be considered for secondary joint appointments in
either the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction
Engineering or the Department of Chemistry. UCF provides competitive
startup funds and teaching loads; it is designated as a research
university of very high activity (RU/VH) by the Carnegie Foundation
and as an ‘Up-and-Coming School’ by U.S. News and World Report.
Applicants must complete a job application at
http://www.jobswithucf.com/postings/39605 which will link to both
position #34009 and #34010. Separately, applicants must e-mail a
single PDF document that includes a letter of intent, curriculum
vitae, statements of research interests and teaching philosophy, and
contact information for three references to: bio-search@ucf.edu.

Review of applicants will be ongoing and will continue until suitable
candidates are found with an anticipated start date of August 2015.
The University of Central Florida is an Affirmative Action/Equal
Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants are encouraged to
apply, including minorities, women, veterans and individuals with
disabilities. As a Florida public university, UCF makes all
application materials and selection procedures available to the public
upon request.
