Bowling Green State University is pleased to announce a cluster hire in
the area of environmental problems of watersheds in our Department of
Biological Sciences and School of Earth, Environment, and Society
(SEES). The first two positions in this cluster hire are a biological
limnologist and a physical limnologist.Applicants are expected to
develop a highly productive, collaborative, and externally funded
research program, and contribute to the teaching/service missions of our
undergraduate and graduate programs.
*Biological Limnologist*:Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Biological
Sciences.The successful candidate will conduct innovative research that
addresses questions at break-through spatial and temporal scales. The
biological limnologist will develop a research program that addresses
biological processes in freshwater, especially research relatable to
pressing aquatic issues in the lower Great Lakes such as harmful algal
blooms, invasive species, water quality, and climate change.
Biological Sciences offers BS/MS/PhD, with 26 graduate faculty, 70+
graduate students, and 700 undergraduate majors.Biological Sciences has
research emphases in Ecology and Molecular Biology, featuring a strong
environmental microbiology program that spans these areas.
*Physical Limnologist*:Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in SEES.We seek

Geology, and Geography and MS degrees in Geology and Applied Geospatial
Sciences with 18 graduate faculty, 25+ graduate students, and 200
undergraduate majors.SEES has a research emphasis in environmental
sciences with related strengths in hydrology, geochemistry, and

(MDNR, ODNR, PA F&BC, NYDEC, OMNR), as well as universities (e.g., Ohio
State, Purdue, Mich. State, U of Mich., University of Windsor, Kent
State, University of Toledo) can help promote new opportunities for
collaboration in the Great Lakes.
