We are seeking academics to grow Marine Biology and Marine Biogeochemistry. The University of Southampton has a well-established reputation for its outstanding research and education in Ocean and Earth Science (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/oes/), based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS) Waterfront Campus. NOCS forms a unique collaboration between the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the University of Southampton, representing an unparalleled investment in marine and earth science research and education in the UK. We have strong interdisciplinary links across the University to tackle global challenges, including the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute (http://southampton.ac.uk/smmi/), Institute for Life Sciences (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/ifls/) and Centre for Biological Sciences (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/biosci). Extensive leading edge facilities (http://data.southampton.ac.uk/facilities.html) enable world-class research and education.

We seek an enthusiastic Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Reader in Marine Biology. Outstanding candidates interested in any aspect of marine biology are invited to apply. Preference may be given to candidates using aquatic organisms or systems as models to test general biological or ecological theory, or addressing globally relevant challenges facing society, such as climate change, biodiversity loss and food security. Modelling, advanced statistical or molecular ecology skills would also be welcome. The role will involve building teaching and research links with Biological Sciences on the main Highfield campus.

Candidate Evaluation
The successful candidates will demonstrate a track record in high quality research and an enthusiasm for teaching at all levels, rather than within a specific field of study. You must have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral research experience and track record commensurate with level of appointment. You will be expected to develop an externally funded research programme with an international profile. You will be committed to excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate education, including field courses and engage in doctoral student supervision through our large Graduate School (see http://noc.ac.uk/gsnocs).

Application Process
Enquiries should be directed to the Head of Ocean and Earth Science via Frances Bradbury (fjb1 at noc.soton.ac.uk,). Interviews are to be held in April and May 2013.
