Research Faculty I or II position in Applied Coastal Ecology - Job Post #48541

Review of applications will begin on April 15, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. We anticipate the successful candidate will start the position by August 2021, and no later than December 2021.

The MISSION of the FSUCML is to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research that contributes to solving ecological problems and providing the scientific foundation for informed policy decisions.

The VISION for the FSUCML is to be an internationally recognized center for coastal and marine science, setting the agenda for research and education and remaining a trusted source for scientific advice.

Job Description – As the FSUCML continues to grow and diversify, candidates are sought at the Research Faculty I or II in applied coastal ecology (non-tenure track), level to be determined at time of hire based on the selected candidate’s qualifications. We encourage candidates using a watershed perspective at the land-sea interface with expertise in restoration or disturbance ecology, ecotoxicology, trophic dynamics, ecosystem services, or ecosystem modeling applied at the community or ecosystem level. The FSUCML is located on the northeastern Gulf of Mexico coast in a relatively undeveloped area of rich biodiversity. Diverse aquatic habitats are nearby, including freshwater floodplain swamps and marshes, salt marshes, mangroves, seagrass meadows, soft-sediment habitats, hard-bottom habitats dominated by coral and sponge communities, and oyster reefs. It is expected that successful candidates will focus a significant portion of their research on estuarine and nearshore areas in the Apalachicola River and Bay ecosystems as part of our recently funded initiative [1]. The FSUCML lies in Florida’s rural and beautiful “Forgotten Coast” yet is only one hour from the FSU main campus and its sophisticated research facilities in Tallahassee.

Successful applicants will be expected to demonstrate excellence in scholarship, student mentoring, and outreach and to develop a well-funded, independent research program. Postdoctoral experience is desirable. Applicants with strong publication and funding records will be preferred. This is a partially soft-money funded position. This position will be funded 100% by the University for the first two years. Beginning in year three and continuing thereafter, 75% of the salary will be provided by the university and 25% must be secured externally by the incumbent. A competitive start-up package will be offered. Graduate faculty status may be granted to advise graduate students admitted to academic departments on main campus.

How to Apply - Applications should be submitted at the FSU Jobs page using (Job ID 48541) and should contain a cover letter, curriculum vita, a two-page narrative describing research interests and plans, a one-page graduate student mentoring statement, and the names and contact information for three references. Applicants are encouraged to present their research in a way that is complementary to and can form a basis for integrative collaboration with faculty at the FSUCML and on the FSU main campus.
