The Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program in Mystic, Connecticut invites
applications for an assistant professor to teach marine ecology, supervise
independent student research, and participate in 2-3 multi-day field
seminars (offshore sailing cruise and field seminars to the Pacific and
Gulf of Mexico coasts) in each of two semesters per year. Our coastal
campus includes a state of the art marine science center. We are seeking a

renewable five-year terms is possible after 2 three-year terms. This is
intended to be a career position with continued renewal going forward.
Williams-Mystic (mystic.williams.edu) is a selective off-campus program of
Williams College located at Mystic Seaport, with approx. 20 students each

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.
