Climate Change and Urban Coastal Ecosystems
As part of a strategic initiative in the area of Urban Coastal Sustainability, the Marine Science Center and the Earth and Environmental Science Department at Northeastern University invite applications for multiple tenure track positions to start as early as September 2012.
While we encourage applications at the Assistant Professor level, exceptionally qualified candidates at all levels will be considered. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, at least one year of research experience at the postdoctoral or equivalent level, and evidence of outstanding research and academic potential.
Candidates are expected to have or to develop an independently funded research program of national caliber and participate effectively in undergraduate and graduate teaching. We are searching broadly and welcome applications utilizing interdisciplinary approaches to better understand the environmental and societal implications of climate change. Areas of interest within the department and center are focused on coastal ecosystems, with growing attention to those adjacent to major urban centers; physical and chemical processes at the boundaries of land, sea and atmosphere; etc. Experience in experimental, organismal, and genomic approaches to address the environmental impacts of climate change and related impacts (e.g., ocean acidification) would complement the Marine Science Center’s strategic focus on the sustainability of coastal ecosystems. The primary research laboratories of successful candidates are expected to be based at the Marine Science Center in Nahant.
