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
