FACULTY POSITION IN FISHERIES BIOLOGY
The Northeastern University Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to start as early as September 2011.
While we seek a junior faculty member at the Assistant Professor level, exceptionally qualified candidates could be considered at a higher level. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in Marine Biology or a related discipline, postdoctoral/professional experience, and evidence of outstanding research and academic potential.
Candidates are expected to have or to develop an independently funded research program of national caliber and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Expertise in all areas of biology will be considered, especially those in molecular biology, physiology, ecology and evolution. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research involves economically important fisheries species, including resource management, sustainability, conservation and policy. Although the successful candidate’s appointment is within the Department of Biology, the primary office and laboratory space will be at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center (MSC) located in Nahant, Massachusetts. Hence, the successful candidate is expected to complement and strengthen existing research and teaching efforts within the MSC and the Department of Biology.
