*Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Chemical Oceanography*




The School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (SFOS) at the University of
Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) seeks applications from exceptional candidates for a
tenure-track assistant professor position in chemical oceanography.
Specialties of interest include ocean acidification, marine inorganic
carbon chemistry, carbon biogeochemistry, carbon cycle-climate
interactions, isotope biogeochemistry, and evaluation of the biological
impact of ocean acidification. We are particularly interested in applicants
whose research plan involves the new ice-capable, Global Class Research
Vessel *Sikuliaq*.



UAF is Alaska’s research university, North America’s Arctic university and
a world leader in Arctic and climate change research. The successful
applicant will enjoy opportunities for collaboration within SFOS’s vibrant
high-latitude research program. The School offers a Minor in marine
science, and MS and PhDs in oceanography and in marine biology. The UAF
campus houses the Ocean Acidification Research Center (OARC), Alaska Stable
Isotope Facility (ASIF), UAF’s Advanced Instrumentation Laboratory (AIL),
the Core Facility for Nucleic Acid Analysis, and is linked to the joint
NOAA, UAF Kasitsna Bay Laboratory, Alaska SeaLife Center and the Seward
Marine Center. SFOS has over 60 faculty based throughout Alaska and over
150 graduate students engaged in thesis research in Alaska waters, and
throughout the world.



Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in oceanography or closely related discipline,
and preferably have post-doctoral and teaching experience. The position
requires research, education and service that support Alaska’s ocean
resources and the communities that rely on them. The successful candidate
will be expected to teach core and/or develop specialty oceanography
courses for the graduate and undergraduate academic programs, develop a
vigorous externally-funded research program and mentor graduate students.
Applicants must submit a statement of interest that outlines their
qualifications for this position and includes a research plan, teaching
statement, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of at least
three references. Applications must be submitted to Job Posting #0069942 at

Review of applications will begin February 15th. For full consideration
applications should be received by March 1st, 2015.
