Title Doherty Marine Biology Postdoctoral Scholar
Posting Number F00099JP
Department Biology
Position Summary

Bowdoin College invites applications for a one-year fellowship as the
Doherty Marine Biology Postdoctoral Scholar beginning June 1, 2018. A
second year is possible pending administrative approval. The Doherty
Scholar’s research and teaching will be based at the Schiller Coastal
Studies Center (SCSC) located on a 118-acre property on Orr’s Island, a 20
minute drive from campus. The site offers easy access to nearshore habitats
of the Casco Bay region of Maine. Over the last four years, the SCSC has
enhanced Bowdoin’s capacity for conducting research that examines the
impacts of climate change on coastal systems. This effort includes a
new NSF funded
experimental seawater laboratory and coastal monitoring platform as well as
a recent gift that will significantly expand research and residential
infrastructure. We seek applicants who take an inter-disciplinary approach
to studying changing chemical environments and the impacts on benthic
invertebrates. Additionally, scholars who have primary training in marine
biology/physiology and ocean acidification with an interest in
incorporating cross-disciplinary tools from geochemistry and
paleoceanography are encouraged to apply. The Doherty Scholar will maintain
an active research program that synergizes with a 1/3 time commitment to a
collaborative ocean acidification project with marine biologists, marine
geochemists and paleoceaongraphers funded by Maine Sea Grant. The teaching
responsibilities include a course module in the fall Marine Science
Semester and the supervision of undergraduate research in the applicant’s
specialty during the summer and academic year.

The annual stipend for this benefits-eligible position is $50,000.
Applicants must have received, or anticipate receiving, their Ph.D. between
June 1, 2012 and June 1, 2018.

We welcome applications from candidates committed to the instruction and
support of a diverse student population and those who will enrich and
contribute to the College’s ethnic and cultural diversity. We value a
community in which students of all backgrounds are warmly welcomed and
encouraged to succeed. In your application materials, we encourage you to
address how your teaching, scholarship, and/or mentorship may support our
commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Bowdoin College accepts only electronic submissions. Please submit letter
of application, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching
interests, and the names and contact information for three references who
have agreed to provide a recommendation.

Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the
position is filled. Applications received by February 1, 2018 will receive
first priority.
