Dear ROMS Forum

I would like to advertise three faculty positions :D :
2 regarding ocean engineering (jobs.usm.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=57589)
and 1 regarding marine science (jobs.usm.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=57599).

Thank you much

Maarten Buijsman

The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Division of Marine Science (DMS), within the School of Ocean Science and Technology (SOST), invites applications for two tenure-track positions in ocean engineering at the assistant professor level. This newly established Ocean Engineering baccalaureate program creates an opportunity to blend engineering approaches with DMS established expertise in marine and hydrographic sciences, and to develop innovative solutions to the exploration of the oceanographic environment. These positions offer the successful candidates the possibility to contribute to the implementation and future growth of our ocean engineering program. This program is expected to combine strengths in ocean sampling technologies, technology fabrication, and coastal hydrodynamics with innovative application of ocean engineering solutions. The successful candidates should be able to leverage collaborations with SOST marine scientists and hydrographers within DMS and the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, and computer and polymer engineers within USM’s College of Science and Technology. DMS faculty also interact with research scientists of federal agencies at Stennis Space Center, such as the Naval Research Laboratory, the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, and NOAA's National Data Buoy Center.

The Division of Marine Science (http://www.usm.edu/marine) is home to an interdisciplinary program of graduate and undergraduate study and research in marine systems. In addition to the new Ocean Engineering baccalaureate program, DMS offers Marine Science B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, and a Hydrographic Science M.S. The DMS baccalaureate programs are delivered in Long Beach, MS, from the 52-acre beachfront Gulf Park campus, in close proximity to the Port of Gulfport, which is the home port for the USM-flagged ocean research vessel Pt. Sur. A new USM port facility in Gulfport, with a state-of-the-art fabrication lab, testing tank, and laboratory space, is scheduled to open in spring 2018.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in civil, environmental, or ocean engineering, or a related field, and have demonstrated research experience in ocean environment studies, through application of in situ, laboratory, and/or numerical modeling methodologies. Post-doctoral experience is desirable. The successful candidates are expected to develop and deliver courses in the Ocean Engineering program, facilitate the program’s successful establishment of ABET accreditation, and maintain an active research program. Applicants should submit a letter of interest outlining their qualifications for the position, including a research plan, teaching philosophy with a curricular plan, a curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of at least four references. All application materials will be accepted online at https://jobs.usm.edu. For inquiries about the position, contact Dr. Maarten Buijsman, chair of the search committee, at maarten.buijsman@usm.edu or 228.688.2385. Applicant review will begin February 1, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. The anticipated start date is August 2018.

The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) is seeking applications for a newly-established Endowed Chair in its Division of Marine Science (DMS). This is a permanent, tenure track position for which we are seeking an enthusiastic candidate who can flourish within the multi-disciplinary environment of our department and enhance our academic and research enterprises. The Division is located in the federal city of NASA’s Stennis Space Center and benefits from close working relationships with a number of on-site federal agencies, including several of the Navy divisions, USGS and NOAA. DMS graduate and undergraduate programs extend across traditional marine science emphasis areas in biological, physical, chemical and geological oceanography, and also encompass hydrographic science and ocean engineering. Although candidates with accomplishments in biological oceanography or ocean technology will be given enhanced consideration, qualified candidates from other sub-disciplines of oceanography will also be considered. The successful candidate should, above all, demonstrate superior potential to contribute across the noted disciplines and promote the continued interdisciplinary growth of our academic and research programs. This growth has recently included the construction of a new building at the Port of Gulfport, the acquisition of the Research Vessel Point Sur, the establishment of a unique certificate program in Unmanned Maritime Systems, and the formation of the School of Ocean Science and Technology, which also includes the Division of Coastal Sciences located at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs.

The Division of Marine Science (http://www.usm.edu/marine) is home to an interdisciplinary program of graduate and undergraduate study and research in marine systems. In addition to the new Ocean Engineering baccalaureate program, DMS offers Marine Science B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, and a Hydrographic Science M.S. The DMS baccalaureate programs are delivered in Long Beach, MS, from the 52-acre beachfront Gulf Park campus, in close proximity to the Port of Gulfport. A new USM facility at the port is scheduled to open in Spring 2018. This facility will be home to a state-of-the-art fabrication lab, testing tank, and laboratory space, and will provide opportunities for faculty and students to conduct ocean technology development.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest outlining their qualifications for the position,
including a research plan, teaching philosophy with a curricular plan, a curriculum vitae, and names and contact information of at least four references. Salary packages will be nationally competitive and commensurate with experience. Applications must be submitted online at https://jobs.usm.edu. For inquiries about the position, contact Vernon Asper, Chair of the
Search Committee, at 1-228-688-3178 or vernon.asper@usm.edu. Review of applications begins
1 December 2017 and continues until the position is filled, with an anticipated start date of August 2018.
