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.
