Dear coral-list

Here is a great job opportunity at the University of Miami that could interest coral reef biologists working in select fields. Questions regarding the position should be directed to Prof. Mike Schmale at mschmale at rsmas.miami.edu<mailto:mschmale at rsmas.miami.edu>.

Associate/Assistant Professors in Marine Biology & Ecology, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), University of Miami, Florida, USA

The Department of Marine Biology and Ecology at the University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) is seeking candidates for Associate or Assistant Professors in Marine and/or Estuarine Systems focusing on Microbial Ecology/Microbiome Biology or Environmental Biology. Microbial candidates should have research experience in marine microbiomes and the interactions between marine microbial communities and marine ecosystems. Strengths in microbial dynamics and community interactions using current genomic tools to characterize microbial assemblages are desirable. Environmental biology candidates should have a strong background in organism-environment interactions in multicellular organisms focusing on nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, immune, reproductive, or homeostatic systems. For both fields, an interest in the responses to climate change and other environmental impacts in the marine/estuarine environment is highly desirable.

The Department of Marine Biology and Ecology consists of 19 faculty working in coral reef ecology and on the genomics, physiology, toxicology, neurophysiology and diseases of marine fish and invertebrates (http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/research/departments/marine-biology-and-ecology/). The Department has an active PhD program and a large undergraduate program.

Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant field, appropriate postdoctoral training, a strong publication record and be able to demonstrate ongoing sources of extramural support for their research programs (Associate Professor) or a strong funding potential (Assistant Professor). Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the graduate and undergraduate academic programs of the department through teaching, mentorship and advising.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, separate statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references.  The position will remain opened until filled, with initial review of applications beginning January 15, 2018. We anticipate conducting interviews for the positions in March, 2018.
