Eckerd College seeks to fill a tenure track faculty position at the
assistant professor level beginning fall 2011. This is a joint position in
Biology and Marine Science.

Applicants must have a Ph.D., preferably with postdoctoral and teaching
experience. Candidates should be strongly committed to teaching and
mentoring undergraduates, and training them through example and
participation in their own significant program of research that includes
marine organisms. The teaching load is seven course equivalents per academic
year, including comparative animal physiology, biological oceanography, a
January Term, and other required and elective courses in the biology and
marine science majors as needed. Participation in the College’s
interdisciplinary, values-oriented general education program is required,
including a regular rotation in a two-semester freshman program. Eckerd
College, the only independent national liberal arts college in Florida, has
a tradition of innovative education and teaching/mentoring excellence.

Eckerd College is a private, coeducational, liberal arts college with an
enrollment of approximately 1800 students. The college is situated on a
108-ha waterfront campus with over 2.5 km of shoreline on Boca Ciega Bay
with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. The Galbraith Marine Science
Laboratory provides excellent teaching and research facilities that are
available for maintaining marine animals year round, and for carrying out a
variety of field and laboratory studies. A new Center for Molecular and Life
Sciences is currently under construction on campus. Eckerd is part of a
large marine science research community located in St. Petersburg, Florida,
which includes the USGS Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, Florida Institute of Oceanography,
NOAA Fisheries Service Southeast Regional Office, and the University of
South Florida’s College of Marine Science.
