Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for cross-postings!

Please share the following job opportunities.

Note that the search committee is interpreting the hiring topic very broadly, and that any excellent candidates should apply.


University of North Carolina Wilmington

Department of Biology and Marine Biology


The Department of Biology and Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in Coastal Health beginning in August 2018. Expertise is being sought in two areas: 1) health of coastal inhabitants (for example, aquatic toxicology, ecology of diseases, water-borne pollutants), and 2) coastal ecosystem health (for example, climate change, wetlands, aquaculture, fisheries biology, impacts of exotic species, and conservation). Candidates must have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience. Successful applicants will be expected to contribute to teaching Marine Biology, Animal Physiology or Ecology and other courses depending on individual expertise, contribute to departmental service, and to maintain a vigorous, extramurally funded research program involving undergraduate and graduate students.

The department has an excellent record of faculty development and mentorship, and is committed to assisting new faculty to succeed. The department is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Graduate curricula in the department include M.S. programs in Biology and Marine Biology, as well as a Ph.D. program in Marine Biology. Preference will be given to candidates able to complement existing disciplinary strengths and leverage departmental facilities and who can interact with and contribute to our Ph.D. program in Marine Biology. Excellent support for research is provided in departmental facilities on campus (http://www.uncw.edu/bio/) and at the CREST Research Park (http://uncw.edu/CREST/), including the Center for Marine Science, Shellfish Research Hatchery, and Biotechnology Center.

Full applicant instructions can be found at https://jobs.uncw.edu/postings/9386. Dual career couples are welcome to apply, and we encourage all job seekers to visit http://www.uncw.edu/hr/employment-epa.html to learn about other openings in our department and at UNCW.
