Four Tenure Track Faculty Positions in the School of Marine Science and Policy

The School of Marine Science and Policy (SMSP) at the University of Delaware (UD) is hiring four tenure track faculty members in ocean science and policy. SMSP offers graduate programs in Marine Biosciences, Marine Policy, Oceanography, and Physical Ocean Science & Engineering and an undergraduate major in Marine Science. SMSP is situated on the main campus in Newark and a coastal campus in Lewes, which together offer ready access to a variety of coastal and estuarine environments and the Mid-Atlantic Bight.

We seek dynamic individuals who will establish internationally recognized, extramurally funded, interdisciplinary research programs while contributing to the teaching and service missions of SMSP. While applications are welcome from all relevant disciplines within the School, there will be a special interest in the coastal/estuarine system including but not limited to the following areas: a) physical oceanography integrating dynamics from other core oceanographic disciplines; b) ecosystem science, such as coastal and wetlands ecology or environmental chemistry; c) ecological modeling, addressing issues of responses to changing climate, sustainability, ecosystem services, or resource management; and d) economic or quantitative policy analysis.

These hires are expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor, but exceptional applicants at other ranks will also be considered. Target start date is fall 2015, but candidates may be considered for as early as spring 2015.

We will begin accepting applications late summer/early fall 2014. If you are interested and would like to be notified when we begin, please email us at smsp-fs@udel.edu
