Marine Scientist

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab announces the availability of a faculty-level Marine Scientist position starting in fall 2002. We invite applications from individuals with research and teaching interests in any area of marine science focusing on estuarine or coastal ecosystems. Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to, application of stable isotopes, landscape or food web modeling, or molecular techniques in their investigations.

While more qualified candidates will be considered, the position is expected to be filled at the assistant professor level. Salary is competitive and will be provided for 10 months per year. Start-up funds for research will also be provided. Teaching responsibilities (graduate and undergraduate) normally include two courses per year. 

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab is located south of Mobile, Alabama at the confluence of the Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. This environment includes a diverse array of understudied habitats, ranging from extensive oligohaline/saltwater marshes to the productive open waters of the northern Gulf. The DISL is a 36-acre campus where teaching and research are supported by numerous research vessels (14'-65'), a newly renovated flowing seawater lab, a comprehensive library, and modern laboratory and analytical facilities. For additional descriptions of DISL facilities and programs see our web site at 

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of teaching and research interests, 2-3 selected reprints, and the names and contact information (including E-mail addresses) for three references to: Dr. John F. Valentine, Chair, Marine Scientist Search Committee, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, 101 Bienville Blvd. Dauphin Island, AL 36528. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2001 and continue until the position is filled. The DISL is an EOE/AA/M/F/D employer.
