The Division of Ocean Science and Technology has been established in Tsinghua University as one of its initiatives to develop its excellence of education and research in ocean science and technology. The Division will take the advantage of existing excellences in mathematics, engineering and computer sciences in Tsinghua University, and advance the sciences and technologies in 1) observing, understanding and predicting physical, geological, chemical and biological environment and processes in shelf seas and oceans, and their interaction with the Earth system, 2) exploring and protecting marine nature resources, and 3) assisting regional and national sustainable economic development. A new 15,000 m2 ocean science and technology building will be built in 2012 to host this new division in the Tsinghua University Graduate School at Shenzhen which includes state of art laboratories for physical, biogeochemical and biological experiments and analysis, and deep test tanks for ocean engineering and sensor development.

The Division has identified the following 5 focused areas:
Submeso- mesoscale physical processes.
Biogeochemical and biological processes.
The Division is recruiting faculty members at all ranks in these 5 focused areas to establish a strong sizable program. An individual with strong skills in field observations, sensor development, and field data-model integration will be highly desirable. The successful candidates are expected to develop internationally recognized, externally funded disciplinary or interdisciplinary research programs, and actively participate in graduate teaching and advising. It is highly encouraged to have cluster hiring for candidates to form small self-organized interdisciplinary research groups.
A PhD (or equivalent professional experience) is required, and postdoctoral experience is preferred. The successful candidate must have a demonstrated capability or potential to carry on an active, independent, externally funded research program, to supervise graduate students, and to collaborate with others in research and education. These positions are available immediately. The level of an appointment will be commensurate with the qualification and experience of a successful candidate.
Applicants should send a statement of teaching and research interests and goals, curriculum vitae, 3-5 representative reprints, and contact information of three referees to email@example.com. Applications are accepted any time, and will be reviewed in a timely manner till the positions are filled.
