The School of Ocean Science and Engineering (SOSE) at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) invites qualified applicants for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track position as an assistant or associate professor in Biological Oceanography to join the Marine Science faculty in the Division of Marine Science (DMS). SOSE includes two academic divisions, Marine Science, and Coastal Sciences, and several R&D centers including: Hydrographic Science Research Center, Center for Fisheries Research and Development, and Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center. The Division of Marine Science is based at the NASA Stennis Space Center where Marine Science faculty benefit from close working relationships with a number of on-site federal agencies, including the Naval Research Laboratory-Stennis Space Center, the Naval Oceanographic Office, the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, the USGS and NOAA, including the National Data Buoy Center.

Marine Science graduate and undergraduate programs extend across traditional marine science emphasis areas in biological, physical, chemical and geological oceanography, as well as hydrographic science and ocean engineering. DMS offers Marine Science M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, and a Hydrographic Science M.S. Marine Science faculty and graduate programs are housed at Stennis Space Center. Marine Science B.S. programs in Marine Science and Ocean Engineering are delivered at the USM Gulf Coast Campus in Long Beach, MS as well as at USM’s main campus in Hattiesburg, MS. The Long Beach campus is in close proximity to the Port of Gulfport, which is the home port for USM’s R/V Point Sur and the recently opened USM Marine Research Center, that features a state-of-the-art fabrication lab, testing tank, and laboratory space.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in oceanography, biological oceanography, or a related field. Preference will be given to candidates with post-doctoral experience, and a demonstrated record of scholarship, service, grant development, communication, and commitment to diversity. For appointment at the Associate level, candidates should also have demonstrated a national or international reputation for excellence in their discipline.
