The Department of Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion
University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position to
begin by fall 2016 in the area of coastal systems and processes.
Specific areas of research we are most interested include:

• Processes and histories of sedimentary systems in the coastal zone,
including the effects of sea level rise on estuaries, lagoons, marshes,
tidal wetlands or barrier islands;

• The impacts of climate (past and future) on hydrologic processes in
coastal environments;

• Coastal zone hydrogeology, including the effects of sea level rise on
coastal aquifers, and the interactions of groundwater discharge with
coastal aquatic systems.

The successful candidate will have expertise in quantitative
investigations of coastal dynamics and those with field oriented
interests are particularly encouraged to apply. We also welcome
applications from candidates employing modeling, remote sensing and/or
laboratory approaches.

It is anticipated that this position will be filled at the Assistant
Professor level, but exceptional candidates at the Associate level will
be considered. Candidates at the Associate Professor level must
demonstrate substantial research accomplishments of peer-reviewed
publications, a consistent record of peer-reviewed funding as a PI,
current active competitive grants, and a strong and successful graduate
and undergraduate teaching and mentoring record. Applicants must hold a
Ph.D. degree in ocean or earth sciences or a related science discipline
and postdoctoral experience is preferred. The successful candidate will
demonstrate strong potential for outstanding accomplishments in research
and teaching as an individual and as a member of collaborative teams.

The department has a robust undergraduate and graduate program with
students pursuing BS, MS and PhD degrees and the successful applicant
will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses that
support our existing curricula in ocean and earth sciences as well as
graduate courses in his/her area of specialty. Many opportunities exist
for disciplinary and interdisciplinary interactions with more than 25
other faculty in OEAS, its Centers for Coastal Physical Oceanography and
Quantitative Fisheries Ecology and other centers and departments within
the university. Information about the Department and its facilities can
be found at: h<ttp://>.

Applications should contain a cover letter, CV, succinct teaching and
research statements, copies of three relevant publications published in
the last five years and contact information for three professional
references. Complete applications must be submitted electronically as a
single PDF file at <>. Please submit this PDF file
under the category “Media Portfolio”.

Applications received by September 1, 2015 will be given preference in
review with the position open until filled. Old Dominion University
welcomes the opportunity to work with candidates to identify suitable
employment opportunities for spouses.

Old Dominion University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action
institution. Minorities, women, veterans, and
individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply
