The Department of Biology at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invites applications for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions in Coastal Ecology/Biology. We seek broadly-trained, collaborative coastal ecologists/biologists, who focus on coastal upland and/or nearshore (wetland, estuarine, or marine) systems or organisms that reside therein. Potential research areas include, but are not restricted to: biogeochemistry, climate change, population and community ecology, conservation biology, ecosystem ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental physiology, habitat modeling, microbial ecology, phycology, and/or sea-level rise. Researchers who use innovative combinations of field, experimental, genomic and theoretical approaches are encouraged to apply. We strongly prefer candidates who can build within-department and interdisciplinary collaborations (e.g., with civil and environmental engineers, environmental chemists, mathematical modelers, etc).

The University of Central Florida is strategically investing in interdisciplinary studies of Coastal Systems. This year we are searching for a cluster of five tenure-track faculty in Biology (2), Chemistry (1), and Civil Engineering (2). Those who are hired should be strongly rooted in one of these disciplines and, ideally, also be interested in interdisciplinary collaborative research, and possibly teaching, in one or more of the other fields. These hires are part of 200 new faculty positions to be hired university-wide in 2015-16, with more hires anticipated in coming years.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. from an accredited institution in a relevant field, appropriate postdoctoral training and a demonstrated ability or strong potential to establish and maintain a vigorous, extramurally funded research program. Successful candidates will contribute to teaching and mentoring students in our undergraduate and graduate programs (see http://biology.cos.ucf.edu for departmental details) and may be considered for secondary joint appointments in either the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering or the Department of Chemistry. UCF provides competitive startup funds and teaching loads; it is designated as a research university of very high activity (RU/VH) by the Carnegie Foundation and as an ‘Up-and-Coming School’ by U.S. News and World Report.
Applicants must complete a job application at http://www.jobswithucf.com/postings/39605 which will link to both position #34009 and #34010. Separately, applicants must e-mail a single PDF document that includes a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, statements of research interests and teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references to: bio-search at ucf.edu<mailto:bio-search at ucf.edu>.

Review of applicants will be ongoing and will continue until suitable candidates are found with an anticipated start date of August 2015. The University of Central Florida is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply, including minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities. As a Florida public university, UCF makes all application materials and selection procedures available to the public upon request.
