Michigan Technological University is bolstering its strength in
water-related research and educational programs with a new faculty position
that may reside in any academic unit. We solicit applications for a
tenure-track position in oceanography/limnology with specific expertise in
one or more of the following research approaches: laboratory and ship-based
research; remote sensing; policy analysis; or large-scale computational
modeling. The ability to conduct field or laboratory measurements and
experimentation in addition to modeling skills will be viewed positively.
The position is expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but
senior-level candidates with exceptional records will also be considered.

This position complements existing expertise in aquatic sciences,
engineering, economics, and policy at the multidisciplinary Great Lakes
Research Center (GLRC). The GLRC is a 50,000 sq. ft., $25M waterfront
facility with state-of-the-art laboratories, marine facilities, and a
supercomputer facility (see http://greatlakes.mtu.edu
<http://greatlakes.mtu.edu/index.html>). In addition to pursuing and
funding their own research, successful candidates will contribute to
interdisciplinary studies.

Successful candidates must have earned a doctorate at the time of the
application, and postdoctoral experience is strongly preferred. Candidates
must demonstrate prior success in obtaining, or evidence of potential to
secure, external funding, a commitment to excellence in undergraduate and
graduate education, and to a diverse community. The application review
process will begin on 19 March 2018. Full consideration will be given to
applications submitted by 20 April 2018.

Applicants must apply online at https://www.jobs.mtu.edu/postings/6488,
upload a cover letter, curriculum vita, a one-page statement of research
interests and experience in securing extramural support, and a one-page
statement of teaching experience and philosophy. The cover letter should
explain how the applicant will contribute to water-related research and
education pertaining to oceans and/or lakes and how the candidate will
contribute to the well-being and inclusivity of the University community.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted to arrange for three reference
letters. Questions can be addressed to Search Committee Chair, John Gierke (
