The Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology 
<http://www.hawaii.edu/himb/>(HIMB) within the School of Ocean and Earth 
Science and Technology <http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/> (SOEST) at the 
University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa <http://manoa.hawaii.edu/>, invites 
applications for three full-time, 11-month, tenure-track faculty 
positions: one in marine mammal biology and two in marine ecology. The 
positions are 75% research and 25% instruction, with rank of Assistant 
Research Professor. Exceptional candidates may be considered at the 
level of Associate Research Professor.   The successful candidates will 
be expected to develop an extramurally funded research program that 
complements the expertise of our existing faculty, mentor graduate 
students, and contribute to instructional initiatives.  The level of 
state support will be equivalent to nine (9) months per year.  For the 
marine mammal position, areas of interest include, but are not limited 
to, life history, behavior, sensory biology, physiology, ecology, 
evolution, and conservation.  For the ecology positions, we invite 
excellent applicants from any area of marine ecology, from organismal to 
ecosystem scales, with a vision for integrative and collaborative 
research. It is essential that applicants have a strong field component 
to their research that takes advantage of HIMB’s unique location. The 
instructional component of the position should be viewed broadly and 
creatively; we encourage integrative and transformative contributions 
that expand the educational role of HIMB and leverage its exceptional 
setting and resources.Individual qualifications, academic excellence, 
and collegiality, rather than specific research area, will be the 
primary criteria in selecting the successful candidate.  Minimum 
qualifications: a PhD in biology, oceanography, zoology, ecology, or 
related biological discipline, and a demonstrated capability for 
creative, high-quality research and teaching. To apply, send a single 
pdf that includes (1) cover letter describing your interest in and 
qualifications for this position; (2) statement of research interests 
and vision for research at HIMB; (3) statement of teaching philosophy 
and plan to develop a novel program at HIMB; (4) a detailed curriculum 
vitae; (5) three key publications; (6) names and contact information of 
three persons from whom recommendations may be sought.
