Faculty Positions in Atmospheric Sciences, Physical Oceanography, and Fisheries Ecology

The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University invites applications for three tenure track positions, one in Atmospheric Sciences (F-7098-12-01), one in Physical Oceanography (F-7099-12-01), and one in Fisheries Ecology (F-7100-12-01), to begin as early as Fall 2012. We welcome applicants in all areas of Atmospheric Sciences, Physical Oceanography, and Fisheries and Fish Ecology. Successful candidates are expected to develop an independent externally funded research program, to teach and direct research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate in School and University service. All candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, and have demonstrated excellence in research and a strong commitment to teaching. The positions are expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but exceptional candidates at other ranks will also be considered.

Successful candidates will join a faculty internationally known for their leadership in research in the atmospheric sciences, fisheries, and all the major disciplines of oceanography. The school has more than 500 undergraduate and graduate students and about 50 faculty and 40 staff working together to better understand how our marine, terrestrial, and atmospheric environments function and are related to one another; providing numerous opportunities for collaborative and inter-disciplinary research.

Candidates should submit a State employment application, CV, a letter of introduction which conveys the candidate’s teaching philosophy and proposed research plans, and the names and contact information of three references (electronic submission in one PDF document is strongly preferred). More information about SoMAS and the positions and how to apply can be found at www.somas.stonybrook.edu/about/empopps.html. (Ref.#F-7098-12-01, F-7099-12-01, or F-7100-12-01.)

Review of applications will begin on February 15, 2012 and will continue until the positions are filled.
