The Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program in Mystic, Connecticut invites
applications for a full-time visiting assistant professor to teach 1
oceanography course, supervise independent student research, and
participate in 3 multi-day field seminars (offshore sailing cruise and
field seminars to the Pacific and Gulf of Mexico coasts) in each of two
semesters. Our coastal campus includes a state of the art marine science
center. We are seeking a scientist and educator with collaborative and
interdisciplinary interests for a one-year sabbatical replacement from July

Williams-Mystic (mystic.williams.edu) is a selective off-campus program of
Williams College located at Mystic Seaport, with approx. 20 students each
semester from many different colleges. The mission of Williams-Mystic is to
empower global, creative citizens while cultivating an enduring
relationship with the sea. We create an open-minded, interdisciplinary
academic community through experiential learning at Mystic Seaport, along
the coasts of America, and on the ocean. Students of all majors study the
history, literature, policy and science of the ocean, focusing on
environment and sustainability.
We welcome applications from members of groups traditionally
underrepresented in the field, and we encourage you to write in your cover
letter about your ability to work effectively with a student population
that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity,
nationality, sexual orientation, and religion; we also encourage you to
speak to any experience you have in working in a close-knit and highly
collaborative learning environment.
PhD or ABD and teaching experience preferred.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and three
letters of reference by 11:59 pm on December 1, 2016. All materials should
be addressed to Denise Buell, Dean of the Faculty, and must be submitted
