Tenure Track Faculty Position in Physical Oceanography

The Department of Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University (http://sci.odu.edu/oceanography/) invites applications for a tenure track position as Assistant or Associate Professor in Physical Oceanography. We seek a broad-minded scholar with an interest in the physical processes in the ocean on times scales of inter-annual to centuries and their role in the Earth System. Preference will be given to scientists who employ quantitative analytical methods and/or models and focus their research on societally relevant issues, such as global and climate change, the role of the ocean in the global water cycle, and development of predictive capabilities on decadal time scales. The successful candidate should have excellent communication skills and a demonstrated strong potential to establish a vigorous, well-funded research program. She/he is also expected to teach graduate and undergraduate classes, mentor graduate students, and work within a multi-disciplinary department.

Qualifications for appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor include a PhD in oceanography or related science with postdoctoral experience and a demonstrated ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals. Appointment at the rank of Associate Professor will be considered for candidates demonstrating of an exceptional track record of scholarly independence, an active research program and commensurate teaching experience.

Many opportunities exist for disciplinary and interdisciplinary interactions with more than 25 other faculty in OEAS, its Centers for Coastal Physical Oceanography (http://www.ccpo.odu.edu) and Quantitative Fisheries Ecology and other departments within the university. Information about the department and its facilities can be found at: http://sci.odu.ed /oceanography/. Research funding by OEAS faculty totaled over $6.2 M in FY11. An endowment of approximately $16 million provides additional support for departmental programs.
