[ECOLOG-L] Cluster Hire in Limnology


Bowling Green State University is pleased to announce a cluster hire in the area of environmental problems of watersheds in our Department of Biological Sciences and School of Earth, Environment, and Society (SEES).  The first two positions in this cluster hire are a biological limnologist and a physical limnologist.  Applicants are expected to develop a highly productive, collaborative, and externally funded research program, and contribute to the teaching/service missions of our undergraduate and graduate programs.

Biological Limnologist:  Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences.  The successful candidate will conduct innovative research that addresses questions at break-through spatial and temporal scales. The biological limnologist will develop a research program that addresses biological processes in freshwater, especially research relatable to pressing aquatic issues in the lower Great Lakes such as harmful algal blooms, invasive species, water quality, and climate change.   

Physical Limnologist:  Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in SEES.  We seek candidates with research expertise in physical aspects of lake systems (including the watershed) with potential applications to environmental problems in the Great Lakes, including but not limited to hydrologic modeling, environmental sedimentology, anthropogenic tracers, and coastal processes.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statements of research and teaching interest/experience, and representative publications in one electronic file (pdf) by January 4, 2016 to:  Biological Limnologist Search, Kelly Stewart (kstewart@bgsu.edu) or Physical Limnologist Search, Pat Wilhelm (pwilhel@bgsu.edu). If you have any questions, please email the Search Chairs, George Bullerjahn (biological) at bullerj@bgsu.edu or James Evans (physical) at evansje@bgsu.edu.  Applicants should arrange for three reference letters to be delivered by the same date.  Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment, and post-doctoral experience is preferred.  Start date is August 2016.
