The candidate will be expected to: (1) develop a strong, nationally recognized and externally funded research program; (2) publish in peer-reviewed literature; (3) mentor graduate students; and (4) participate in graduate and undergraduate instruction in the Division of Coastal Sciences and School of Ocean Science and Engineering. The standard distribution of effort for tenure-track faculty members in the Division of Coastal Sciences is 70% research, 20% teaching, and 10% service pre-tenure and 65% research, 20% teaching, and 15% service post-tenure. Evaluation of applications will consider the potential of candidates to develop collaboration with other USM academic units including the Division of Marine Science.
