> Please distribute the following job announcement:
> Faculty Recruitment for a Multidisciplinary Initiative in Coastal and
> Marine Research
> The President and the Provost of Florida State University are pleased to
> announce a major initiative to develop a multidisciplinary group
> studying the short- and long-term dynamics of coastal ecosystems,
> especially with respect to the interconnectivity among biotic and
> abiotic components of terrestrial and marine environments. This
> strategic effort seeks to recruit as many as nine tenure-track/tenured
> faculty, open with respect to rank. Faculty will have academic
> appointments in either the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric
> Science (EOAS) or the Department of Biological Science. Some of the new
> faculty hires can be based at the FSU Coastal and Marine Laboratory
> Successful candidates are expected to interact synergistically with
> research programs in departments and interdisciplinary programs across
> the University, as well as develop new areas of interactions through
> research and graduate and undergraduate teaching. The sustained pursuit
> and growth of collaborative, externally-funded research programs are
> explicit goals of this initiative.
> This is a very broad search and we encourage applications from
> candidates trained in the physical and life sciences who work on
> subjects related to coastal and marine systems. Areas of interest
> include, but are not limited to, ecosystem or community ecology,
> conservation biology, invertebrate/benthic ecology, plant or algal
> ecology, fisheries biology, marine mammalogy, (bio)geochemistry,
> geology, climatology, hydrology, shelf circulation processes and
> biotic/abiotic system modeling.
> Successful candidates will be offered highly competitive salaries and
> start-up packages as well as access to state-of-the-art research space,
> instrumentation, high performance computing and other facilities.
> Faculty are expected to integrate into existing coastal and marine
> ecosystem research in EOAS, Biological Science and the FSUCML, with the
> potential to interact with the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction
> Studies and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute. Further resources
> and support are available through existing programs with other
> institutions, including the Florida Climate Institute, the Deep-C
> Consortium and the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.
> Applicants should provide a letter of application, full curriculum
> vitae, the names and contact information of three professional
> references and a two-page narrative describing their research interests
> that should include a statement as to how the candidate would complement
> this multidisciplinary effort at Florida State University. Application
> documents must be combined into a single PDF file and sent
> electronically to ecosystems.search@fsu.edu. Review of applications and
> nominations will begin November 15, 2013. Additional information about
> the programs at FSU and this faculty search can be obtained at
> http://www.research.fsu.edu/ecosystems_search/.
> Florida State University is committed to the diversity of its faculty,
> staff, and students, and to sustaining a work and learning environment
> that is inclusive. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are
> encouraged to apply. FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative
> Action Employer.
