Deadline: January 31, 2018

The Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences (DMCS) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in coastal physical oceanography at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are searching for a creative, productive and collaborative scientist whose work addresses fundamental topics in the area of the physical oceanography of estuaries and coastal seas. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, ocean-atmosphere interactions, ocean mixing processes, sediment transport processes including quantitative geomorphology, land-ocean interaction, polar/fjord dynamics and interdisciplinary studies that couple physical and biogeochemical processes in estuarine and coastal environments. The candidate would be expected to leverage the extensive resources in the Department in ocean observing and numerical modeling in developing a grant-supported internationally recognized research program. Articulating a vision of how the candidate’s research program would foster collaborations within DMCS and across Rutgers is strongly encouraged. The candidate is also expected to mentor graduate and undergraduate students in their area of expertise, and to continually strive for excellence in graduate and undergraduate education through both teaching and mentoring. A PhD in Physical Oceanography or a closely related field is required with preference to candidates with relevant post-doctoral experience. Applicants should submit a single PDF file containing 1) a cover letter including the names and contact information of three references, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a 3-page vision statement for their future research program in this position, and 4) a statement of teaching experience, philosophy and interests. Review of applications will begin February 1st, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. To apply for this position go to https://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/56973 and click the “apply for this job” link.

DMCS is part of the Institute of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (https://eoas.rutgers.edu/) that unites more than 100 faculty, researchers, and graduate students across 9 academic departments studying Earth’s interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions through Earth history, and their effects on human civilization today. For more information on the department and programs please go to https://marine.rutgers.edu/. DMCS is affiliated with Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and located on the George H. Cook campus in New Brunswick. Rutgers is a leading national research university and the State of New Jersey’s preeminent, comprehensive public institution of higher education. The University offers collaborative opportunities with multiple centers and institutes of excellence, access to interdisciplinary PhD-level graduate training programs, modern research and core facilities. An equal opportunity employer, Rutgers University is committed to building a diverse community and encourages applications from women and minority candidates.

New Brunswick is situated in central New Jersey with easy access to the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan centers. The region is home to world-class universities and corporate headquarters. Central New Jersey offers vibrant and diverse cultural activities, excellent public and private schools, and opportunities to live in urban, suburban or small town settings within a short distance of campus.


Deadline: January 30, 2018

The Department of Environmental Sciences (http://envsci.rutgers.edu) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the area of Atmospheric Chemistry. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in atmospheric chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related environmental discipline and demonstrated ability to conduct research in a university setting; teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels in atmospheric chemistry or other courses relevant to research interests; and mentor students. We seek applicants with research interests in areas including, but not limited to, interactions between climate change and air quality, and the role of atmospheric chemistry in biogeochemical cycles. We especially encourage applicants who desire to develop interdisciplinary projects and to collaborate with faculty from other programs and departments at Rutgers, including Earth and Planetary Sciences, Ecology and Evolution, Geography, Marine and Coastal Sciences, Biochemistry and Microbiology, the School of Engineering, and the Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute. The successful applicant will be eligible for membership in the Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, which unites faculty, researchers, and graduate students studying Earth's interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions through Earth history, and their effects on human civilization today. Applicants will be expected to develop a strong, externally-funded research program and to contribute to the Department's education and research missions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The facilities of the Department of Environmental Sciences include local and remote supercomputing and an array of state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation. As a member of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, we have access to the computing and research facilities of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Locally, our Photochemical Assessment Monitoring (PAM) Site (http://pamsite.rutgers.edu/) supports continuous, real-time measurements of various physical and chemical properties of the lower boundary layer, including surface energy fluxes. Through the PAM Site, the department has a strong working relationship with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Air Quality, which controls over 100 air monitors at 33 different field sites throughout the state. A member of the Big Ten and the Association of American Universities, Rutgers-New Brunswick is America’s eighth oldest institution of higher learning and New Jersey’s premier public research university. The city of New Brunswick sits in the center of America’s vibrant northeast corridor, which runs from Boston to Washington, D.C. We are close to NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, NY, and our faculty members collaborate with scientists at both. We host one of the most diverse student bodies in the United States. As our 2016 commencement speaker President Barack Obama said, “America converges here.”

Qualified applicants should apply at http://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/53675 with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin January 31, 2018, with an intended start date of September 1, 2018. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Questions may be addressed to search at envsci.rutgers.edu.
