Marine Chemistry

The University of Southern Mississippi’s Department of Marine Science at the Stennis Space Center is offering a position in hydrographic science at the tenure-track, assistant or associate professor level. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a hydrographic science, marine science, ocean engineering or closely related field and have demonstrated field and research experience in acoustics, acoustic and LIDAR-based hydrographic and bathymetric surveying, and precise positioning at sea, and proficiency in commercial software packages used to collect and process hydrographic data. Also desirable is the application of hydrographic technologies including acoustics and LIDAR to collaborative opportunities in marine science fields such as fisheries and biological oceanography, marine geology and physical oceanography. A nationally recognized record of publication, demonstrated successful grantsmanship, and at least five years of service at a degree-granting institution or equivalent service at a non-degree-granting institution are needed at the associate level.   A successful candidate is expected to conduct an active research program and participate in the hydrographic science master’s program, which is recognized at the Category-A (Cat-A) level by the International Hydrographic Organization. The latter efforts include curricula review, delivery and development of the program, and faculty experience in delivering a Cat-A hydrographic science curricula is highly desirable. The development of courses for an interdisciplinary academic program for undergraduate students is also expected. The successful candidate must demonstrate a commitment to collaborative research and teaching. The position offers opportunities to collaborate with biological, physical, geological and chemical oceanographers, and modelers, to address complex coastal problems.
