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 
candidates with research expertise in physical aspects of lake systems 
(including the watershed) with potential applications to environmental 
problems in the Great Lakes, including but not limited to hydrological 
modeling, environmental sedimentology, anthropogenic tracers, and 
coastal processes.

SEES offers undergraduate degrees in Environmental Science/Policy, 
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 
geospatial technology.

BGSU is in close proximity to Lake Erie where field studies are 
supported through partnerships with our Firelands College and laboratory 
space provided by the city of Sandusky.Existing interactions with many 
federal (NOAA GLERL, USGS, Sea Grant) and state/provincial agencies 
(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.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statements of research and 
teaching interest/experience, and representative publications in one 
electronic file (pdf) by January 4, 2016 to: Biological Limnologist 
Search Chair, George Bullerjahn (bullerj at bgsu.edu 
<mailto:bullerj at bgsu.edu>) or Physical Limnologist Search Chair, James 
Evans (evansje at bgsu.edu <mailto:evansje at bgsu.edu>).Applicants should 
arrange for three reference letters to be delivered by the same 
date.Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment, and post-doctoral 
experience is preferred.Start date is August 2016.
