McGinty Endowed Chair in Marine Biology 

The Department of Biological Sciences at Florida Atlantic University
(FAU) invites nominations and applications for the John Thomas Ladue
McGinty Eminent Scholar chair position in Marine Biology. Candidates
should be internationally recognized as distinguished leaders in their
specific field of marine biology and currently have a well-established
research program.  We seek an individual deeply committed to both
research and teaching, particularly at the graduate level, in order to
enhance a new Ph.D. program in Integrative Biology. Special
consideration will be given to candidates whose research takes full
advantage of FAU's geographic proximity to the marine and estuarine
environments of Florida and the tropical Atlantic-Caribbean region.
Applicants from a diversity of subdisciplines will be considered
including, but not limited to ecology, physiology, molecular biology and
organismal biology. 

The McGinty Eminent Scholar will conduct a program of research that
facilitates collaborations with departmental faculty and strengthens
current collaborations with Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution
(HBOI) and other marine institutes in the region. Biology faculty are
actively involved in marine biological research at both the Boca Raton
(www.science.fau.edu/biology) and HBOI campuses (www.hboi.edu). The
Eminent Scholar will be active on both campuses having primary research
space in the new 40,000 sq. ft.  FAU-HBOI facility. He/she will be
expected to guide the recruitment of several new junior faculty
positions aimed at enhancing the Marine Biology initiative at FAU. The
endowed chair position will be filled at the full professor level with a
joint appointment at the Senior Scientist level at HBOI. Review of
applications will start March 1, 2006 and continue until the position is
filled. Further information regarding the position can be obtained from
