[ES_JOBS_NET] TWO FACULTY POSITIONS IN LIMNOLOGY, Bowling Green State University

http://ift.tt/1leCluk

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.   

Biological Sciences offers BS/MS/PhD,
with 26
graduate faculty, 70+ graduate students, and 700 undergraduate
majors.  Biological
Sciences has research emphases in
Ecology and Molecular Biology, featuring a strong environmental
microbiology
program that spans these areas. 

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 hydrological modeling,
environmental
sedimentology, anthropogenic tracers, and coastal processes.

SEES offers undergraduate degrees in
Environmental
Science/Policy, Geology, and Geography and MS degrees in Geology
and Applied
Geospatial Sciences with 18 graduate faculty, 25+ graduate
students, and 200
undergraduate majors.  SEES
has a
research emphasis in environmental sciences with related strengths
in
hydrology, geochemistry, and geospatial technology. 

BGSU is in close proximity to Lake
Erie where
field studies are supported through partnerships with our
Firelands College and
laboratory space provided by the city of Sandusky.  Existing interactions with
many federal (NOAA
GLERL, USGS, Sea Grant) and state/provincial agencies (MDNR, ODNR,
PA F&BC,
NYDEC, OMNR), as well as universities (e.g., Ohio State, Purdue,
Mich. State, U
of Mich., University of Windsor, Kent State, University of Toledo)
can help
promote new opportunities for collaboration in the Great Lakes.

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
Chair, George
Bullerjahn (bullerj@bgsu.edu)
or Physical
Limnologist Search Chair, James Evans (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
