The University of Guam Marine Laboratory is seeking an exceptional
candidate to support our new initiatives in coupling physical oceanography
with population dynamics of coastal ecosystems.  The successful candidate
will have proven experience in studying the physical aspects of nearshore
waters in coastal environments.  Specific interests could include physical
monitoring along the ridge-to-reef continuum, development and testing of
oceanographic sensor arrays, and the modeling of the physical/chemical
aspects of climate change (ocean warming, acidification, nutrification,
etc.) scenarios within coastal and nearshore environments. We are
particularly interested in scientists who will increase the UOGML’s ability
to address large-scale questions through analysis and interpretion of
oceanographic data across spatial and temporal scales, from in-situ
sampling to remote sensing, by performing simulations of oceanographic
phenomena using computer or mathematical models.
The successful individual is expected to join a well-funded research team
working on a specific five-year project, develop a viable and energetic
externally-funded research program, make collaborative contributions to
University STEM-centric research programs, and may also contribute to other
local and regional projects in a supporting role. The candidate will be
required to develop and teach at least one graduate level course in
physical oceanography and a second graduate course of choice in a relevant
field, with a total of two semester-long courses being taught every four
semesters. The candidate may also be requested to develop a seminar
course(s) of their own design intermittently.

This is a nine-month tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant
Professor.  Opportunities for summer salary exist.  Minimum qualifications
include a Ph.D in Oceanography with emphasis in physical oceanography from
a U.S. regionally accredited institution or foreign equivalent.
Post-doctoral experience is preferred.
