Stanford University



Stanford University seeks an innovative scholar to fill a tenure-track
faculty position in the area of human-environment interactions in coastal
zones.  The successful candidate is expected to be an active participant
in both the Department of Environmental Earth System Science
(https://pangea.stanford.edu/departments/eess/) and the Center for Oceans
Solutions (COS) in the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment (
http://www.centerforoceansolutions.org/). EESS is an interdisciplinary
department with a research focus on current and future environmental
problems. COS is a collaboration among Stanford University, the Monterey
Bay Aquarium, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute that works
to solve the major problems facing the ocean and prepares leaders to take
on those challenges.  

The appointment will be joint between the Department of Environmental
Earth System Science and the Stanford Woods Institute. The level of the
appointment is open, with a preference for candidates at the junior rank.
We seek a motivated, broad-thinking scholar whose research bridges the
natural science and human dimensions of the coastal environment, with a
focus on understanding how human and biophysical processes interact to
affect the structure and function of marine and coastal systems.  The
successful candidate is expected to establish a vigorous research program
that employs strong analytical methods. The successful candidate is also
expected to teach classes and mentor graduate students in the Department
of Environmental Earth System Science, to teach in the interdisciplinary
environmental programs offered at Stanford (such as Earth Systems and the
Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources), and to be
a leader in the broader oceans and marine communities at Stanford,
including through active leadership of campus-wide interdisciplinary
oceans initiatives. The position will involve research and teaching at
Stanford's main campus, with close ties to Hopkins Marine Station and to
COS partners and collaborators. Given the mission of COS, we are
particularly interested in candidates with a desire to engage the public
about scientific issues regarding coastal systems.


Applications containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and statements
of research and teaching experience and interest should be included with
your submission.  Please apply at:
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/2644.  The search committee will
request letters of recommendation for a subset of applicants following
review of these materials.  Review of applications will begin on June 1,
2013, and continue until the position is filled.  


Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to
increasing the diversity of its faculty.  It welcomes nominations of and
applications from women and minority groups, as well as others who would
bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and
clinical missions.
