Faculty Positions in 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
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.
