2. Open Rank/ Tenure Track - Geospatial Analytics Chancellor's Faculty Excellence Cluster at NC State

The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program is bringing some of the best and brightest minds to join NC State University’s interdisciplinary efforts to solve some of the globe’s most significant problems. Guided by a strong strategic plan and an aggressive vision, the cluster hiring program is adding new faculty members in select fields to add more breadth and depth to NC State’s already-strong efforts. Twenty clusters have been established and a total of 70 faculty have joined NC State University as part of this process.

We seek a collaborative scholar who will lead research on remote sensing of Earth’s land and ice surfaces, ocean, atmosphere, and/or subsurface, and who will develop and teach related undergraduate and graduate courses, including courses that support the new cross-college PhD degree program in Geospatial Analytics. The scholar will be expected to build a program of well-established and focused research and related publications; recruit and mentor graduate students; generate externally funded projects and provide leadership and service to the cluster, the department, college, university, and scholarly organizations. NC State places a high value on excellent instruction and the use of innovative teaching methods.

3. Tenure Track Assistant Professor of physical oceanography at Rutgers University

The Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences (DMCS) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in coastal physical oceanography at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are searching for a creative, productive and collaborative scientist whose work addresses fundamental topics in the area of the physical oceanography of estuaries and coastal seas. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, ocean-atmosphere interactions, ocean mixing processes, sediment transport processes including quantitative geomorphology, land-ocean interaction, polar/fjord dynamics and interdisciplinary studies that couple physical and biogeochemical processes in estuarine and coastal environments. The candidate would be expected to leverage the extensive resources in the Department in ocean observing and numerical modeling in developing a grant-supported internationally recognized research program. Articulating a vision of how the candidate’s research program would foster collaborations within DMCS and across Rutgers is strongly encouraged. The candidate is also expected to mentor graduate and undergraduate students in their area of expertise, and to continually strive for excellence in graduate and undergraduate education through both teaching and mentoring. A PhD in Physical Oceanography or a closely related field is required with preference to candidates with relevant post-doctoral experience. Applicants should submit a single PDF file containing 1) a cover letter including the names and contact information of three references, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a 3-page vision statement for their future research program in this position, and 4) a statement of teaching experience, philosophy and interests.

4. Graduate Research Assistant in Education Innovations in Hydrology & Water Resources Engineering

A Graduate Research Assistantship in Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering, with a focus on engineering education research, is available at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA. The opportunity preferably available for students who have/graduating with a MS and want to pursue a PhD, but students who have/graduating with a BS and want to pursue a MS will also be considered.

The graduate student will work on a new 4-year project (HydroLearn) funded recently by the National Science Foundation. The project will focus on developing the HydroLearn web-based platform with two main objectives: (a) support hydrology and water resources engineering faculty to develop, share, and adopt active-learning innovations, and (b) support effective student learning in key areas of hydrology and water resources engineering, focusing on flood analysis, modeling, forecasting and protection. The HydroLearn platform will build on recent developments by the investigators in three major projects on hydrology education (HydroViz), data sharing (HydroShare) and water resources web apps (Thethys).

Applicants with a strong interest in developing and evaluation of hydrology and water resources engineering educational innovations are strongly desired. The position offers unique opportunities to work with a multi-disciplinary team from three universities (University of Louisiana at Lafayette; Utah State University; Brigham Young University) with expertise in hydrology and water resources; hydroinformatics; web-based developments; computer science; engineering education assessment; and communication and outreach. The project also offers opportunities to interact with staff from the NOAA National Water Center on using the National Water Model to develop the HydroLearn resources.

5. Assistant Professor - Coastal Meteorology

The Department of Oceanography & Coastal Sciences in the College of the Coast & Environment at Louisiana State University (LSU), Baton Rouge, LA, invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track, nine-month position at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning in August 2018, to support a growing program inCoastal Meteorology. Ph.D. required at the time of appointment; postdoctoral experience preferred.

The Department has nearly 30 active full-time faculty members, approximately 20 research specialists and postdoctoral scientists in residence, five research-active emeriti and adjunct faculty, and numerous support staff. Strengths include coastal ecology and restoration, wetland biogeochemistry, fisheries, numerical modeling, remote sensing, as well as biological, chemical, geological, and physical oceanography. The department participates in a BS in Coastal Environmental Science and offers MS and PhD degrees in Oceanography & Coastal Sciences. The department has well-equipped research laboratories and the successful candidate will have access to substantial additional computing resources through the LSU High Performance Computing Center. A machine shop, with a fleet of small boats and vehicles, is available along with access to larger oceanographic ships and coastal laboratory facilities through the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium. Louisiana’s Flagship University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant institution with wide-ranging academic programs and outreach. Louisiana’s coastal zone is particularly vulnerable to atmospheric impacts, and the position is in support of the call in LSU’sStrategic Plan 2025for Louisiana to advance its position as the undisputed leader in research and practice on coastal preservation and restoration.

6. Endowed Chair, Division of Marine Science

The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) is seeking applications for a newly-established Endowed Chair in its Division of Marine Science (DMS). This is a permanent, tenure track position for which we are seeking an enthusiastic candidate who can flourish within the multi-disciplinary environment of our department and enhance our academic and research enterprises. The Division is located in the federal city of NASA’s Stennis Space Center and benefits from close working relationships with a number of on-site federal agencies, including several of the Navy divisions, USGS and NOAA. DMS graduate and undergraduate programs extend across traditional marine science emphasis areas in biological, physical, chemical and geological oceanography, and also encompass hydrographic science and ocean engineering. Although candidates with accomplishments in biological oceanography or ocean technology will be given enhanced consideration, qualified candidates from other sub-disciplines of oceanography will also be considered. The successful candidate should, above all, demonstrate superior potential to contribute across the noted disciplines and promote the continued interdisciplinary growth of our academic and research programs. This growth has recently included the construction of a new building at the Port of Gulfport, the acquisition of the Research Vessel Point Sur, the establishment of a unique certificate program in Unmanned Maritime Systems, and the formation of the School of Ocean Science and Technology, which also includes the Division of Coastal Sciences located at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs.
