Three Oceanography Faculty Positions at LSU

Ecologist, Ecological Modeler, & Fisheries Stock Assessment: The Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS) within the College of the Coast and the Environment at Louisiana State University (LSU) is seeking outstanding applicants to fill up to 3 tenure- track faculty positions. Successful candidates must possess a Ph.D. within their discipline and a strong record of research accomplishments and publications, or the capacity to build the same in the case of emerging scholars. A history or potential to attract extramural funding and to work with interdisciplinary teams that include doctoral students, post-docs, and research associates is expected. An individual candidate may apply for a position in one or more of the three core areas listed below:

Fisheries Stock Assessment Scientist (Assistant or Associate Professor): Seeking candidates from the fisheries sciences including expertise in stock assessment, computational ecology, population dynamics modeling, quantitative fisheries science, mathematics, and/or statistics. A successful candidate will be expected to use quantitative approaches to study fish population dynamics and to advance the science of fisheries stock assessment. He/she must be capable of teaching/developing a course in stock assessment in support of the Graduate Certificate in Fisheries Science and Assessment offered by DOCS and the LSU Graduate School.

Ecological Modeler (Assistant Professor): Seeking candidates that use mathematical and simulation methods for understanding and predicting population, multispecies, community, and food web dynamics, including classical and agent-based approaches. We encourage applications from those who combine modeling and empirical research that may extend to coastal, estuarine, and/or marine fish population ecology and trophic dynamics.

Ecologist (Assistant Professor): Seeking candidates from academic backgrounds in ecology, including, but not limited to feeding relationships, environmental drivers, resource supply and demand and population, community and ecosystem level processes. Candidates who conduct empirical research related to spatial management, coastal, estuarine or marine ecosystem dynamics at spatial scales ranging from estuaries to the deep ocean are encouraged to apply. Duties of the positions include developing and maintaining a rigorous, externally-funded research program in the related area of discipline; teaching courses in a relevant area of specialty and courses based on departmental needs; collaborating on multidisciplinary research projects; mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and providing service to DOCS, LSU, and the State of Louisiana.

Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in science field. Preferred Qualifications: Ph.D. in fishery science, quantitative ecology, marine science, or related field. Postdoctoral experience is encouraged. Please provide three professional references including name, title, phone number and e-mail address. Attach a Statement of Research and Statement of Teaching on your application. Applications that arrive before March 31 will get full consideration.
