Job Description Summary
Michigan Technological University is bolstering its strength in water-related research and educational programs with a new faculty position that may reside in any academic unit. We solicit applications for a tenure-track position in oceanography/limnology with specific expertise in one or more of the following research approaches: laboratory and ship-based research; remote sensing; policy analysis; or large-scale computational modeling. The ability to conduct field or laboratory measurements and experimentation in addition to modeling skills will be viewed positively. The position is expected to be filled at the Assistant Professor level, but senior-level candidates with exceptional records will also be considered.

The GLRC is a 50,000 sq. ft., $25M waterfront facility with state-of-the-art laboratories, marine facilities, and a supercomputer facility (see http://greatlakes.mtu.edu). In addition to pursuing and funding their own research, successful candidates will contribute to interdisciplinary studies.
