The University of New Hampshire (UNH) School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering (SMSOE) of the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) invites applications at the rank of Associate or Full Research Professor in the broad area of Marine Science. The successful applicant can expect to interact with faculty from the life sciences, ocean engineering, Earth sciences, and oceanography as well as the social sciences and humanities to address critical coastal and marine science problems in new and coordinated ways. The successful candidate will have a strong track record of research demonstrating outstanding potential for establishing his or her own independent research program and to raise his/her salary from external grants, be a proven programmatic and organizational leader, and a distinguished scientist with international connections and diverse perspectives. While primarily a research appointment, graduate level teaching and research interaction with diverse students is encouraged.
Minimum requirements are a Ph.D. with 2 years of post-doctoral experience and demonstrated capability to acquire external funding and lead a scientific research program. EOS is largely a soft money research institution and the candidate will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous externally funded research program and to raise his/her salary from external grants. While primarily a research appointment, graduate level teaching and research interaction with students is encouraged.
