The Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) at North
Carolina State University (NC State) seeks to fill a tenure-track faculty
position at the rank of assistant professor in physical oceanography, in
the area of large-scale ocean circulation. Possible research areas include,
but are not limited to: roles of the oceans in climate variability and
climate change, boundary current dynamics, geophysical wave dynamics, the
global thermohaline circulation, and exchange processes between the oceans
and marginal seas. Skills in the application of theory, observations,
computer modeling and data assimilation, are preferred, as is a strong
interest in interdisciplinary collaborations across and beyond the
geosciences. The start date of this position is 15 August 2015.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in physical oceanography or a related
science. The successful candidate must demonstrate strong potential for
outstanding accomplishments in research, research supervision, and
teaching. The successful applicant will be expected to teach undergraduate
and graduate courses, including general marine physics and/or physical
oceanography, and other classes commensurate with the candidate's interest
and expertise. MEAS places a high value on excellent instruction and the
use of innovative teaching methods.
Affiliated with the College of Sciences at NC State, MEAS is one of the
largest interdisciplinary geoscience departments in the nation. The
multi-disciplinary nature of the department lends itself to the study of
severe weather and its impacts, coastal processes and ecosystems, land
surface evolution, as well as water quality and climate change.
Opportunities exist for disciplinary and interdisciplinary interactions
with more than 30 marine, earth, and atmospheric scientists in the
department on problems relating to global and regional
climate/environmental change, environmental processes and prediction, and
the interactions among components of the Earth system. Additional
information about the department and its facilities can be found on the web
page: http://www.meas.ncsu.edu. Marine research facilities and
opportunities for collaboration in the marine sciences are also available
at NC State's Center for Marine Sciences and Technology (CMAST) in Morehead
City, NC: http://www.cmast.ncsu.edu.
Review of applications will begin on 15 October 2014; the position will
remain open until filled. Applications, including cover letters, curriculum
vitae, teaching and research statements, and contact information for three
