Marine Environmental Biologist – Endowed Professorship

Applications are invited for an endowed professorship in Marine Environmental Biology at the College of Charleston. We seek an environmental biologist who studies the impacts of environmental variation or change on marine organisms with a research program that involves omics and/or bioinformatics. Rank for this position is open, but it is anticipated that the appointment will be made at the level of Associate Professor in the Department of Biology (see biology.cofc.edu). The appointee will maintain a modest teaching load (2 to 3 courses per year) that includes undergraduate and graduate courses in an area of expertise and service courses such as introductory biology. 

This position is one of two endowed appointments that are part of the SmartState South Carolina Centers of Economic Excellence (smartstatesc.org/) in the Marine Genomics program, and will include a joint appointment with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). The other endowed appointment will be at MUSC. Ideally, we seek a colleague who could potentially collaborate with their MUSC counterpart (whose research will focus on the linkage between marine and human health). The appointee will be expected to mentor graduate students, teach courses in an area of expertise, and interact with students and staff from the College of Charleston, MUSC, and their three other partners at the Fort Johnson marine campus (the SC Department of Natural Resources, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Institute of Standards and Technology).

The successful applicant will have a demonstrated track record as a scholar and a strong commitment to teaching at all levels and to mentoring both graduate and undergraduate students. Historic Charleston, SC provides a beautiful and culturally rich setting for developing a global perspective on marine environmental problems and solutions.

Applicants should submit electronic (pdf) copies of their cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, up to three relevant publications, and names and contact information for three colleagues capable of providing a recommendation to http://jobs.cofc.edu/postings/6721.  Additional information about this position can be obtained from Seth Pritchard, chair of the Biology Department (pritchards@cofc.edu) or Matt Rutter, chair of the search committee (rutterm@cofc.edu). Review of applications will begin December 7, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.  The College of Charleston is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate against any individual or group on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, race, color, religion, national origin, veteran status, genetic information, or disability.   

Marine Physiologist

The Department of Biology at the College of Charleston invites applications for a tenure-track position in Marine Biology at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2018.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biology, marine biology, marine science or a related field and a strong commitment to teaching and maintaining an active research program involving undergraduate and graduate students.  The area of research is open but we seek candidates who would examine the physiological mechanisms underlying organism-environment interactions of marine animals.  Primary teaching responsibilities would include a graduate-level course in comparative marine physiology in addition to undergraduate courses in comparative physiology and introductory biology and/or human anatomy and physiology.  The College of Charleston, located in Charleston, SC, is a public liberal arts and sciences institution of 12,000 students, with MS programs in Marine Biology and Environmental Studies, the Grice Marine Laboratory close to the downtown campus, and a commitment to excellence in teaching and research.  Information about the department is available at http://biology.cofc.edu/.   Applicants should submit electronic (pdf) copies of their cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, up to three relevant publications, and unofficial graduate transcripts to http://jobs.cofc.edu/postings/6769.  Questions regarding this position can be directed to Dr. Antony Harold search committee chair, at harolda@cofc.edu.  This is a nine-month appointment; salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications.
