We seek to recruit a computational and experimental marine microbiome researcher to complement research strengths at UGA in bioinformatics and marine sciences. Possible areas of research include ocean productivity, global carbon and nutrient cycling, diseases of aquatic organisms, or intersections with public health. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor depending on credentials and accomplishments. This is an interdisciplinary position, with the appointment being split between the Department of Marine Sciences and the Institute of Bioinformatics. A strong record of innovation and ability to develop and apply new computational tools (simulations, flux analyses, data integration and visualization, among others) and microbial ecology approaches to marine microbiome research is preferred. Teaching responsibilities will be in undergraduate and graduate programs and include both bioinformatics and marine science microbiome components. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
The Univeristy of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the Department of Marine Sciences in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences invite applications for two nine-month, tenure-track faculty positions resident at the coastal campus in Savannah, GA. Successful candidates will be interdisciplinary, self-motivated and interested in pursuing innovative research and education in a highly supportive academic environment. We are particularly interested in applicants engaging in interdisciplinary research that advances the understanding of fundamental oceanographic questions in the following areas: Chemical Oceanography—We seek candidates whose area of expertise could include (but are not limited to) organic geochemistry, sedimentary or water column biogeochemistry, or carbon and coupled elemental cycles. Geological Oceanography—We seek candidates who examine coastal and marine sedimentary systems using field-based or modeling approaches. Applicants with expertise in any sub-discipline of marine geology will be considered, although specializations in sediment dynamics, impacts of climate change, or who work at the interface between geology and engineering are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications received by January 8, 2018 are assured full consideration.
