The George Washington University is accepting applications for a tenure-track position in Marine Ecology at the rank of Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences. We are looking for a marine or estuarine ecologist working at the ecosystem or community level. Organismal emphasis is open, and individuals with established research questions that would benefit from the universitys proximity to the Chesapeake Bay area are particularly encouraged to apply.

Teaching responsibilities will include an undergraduate course in Marine Biology (with a lab), and a graduate course in biology in the Environmental Resource Policy Program. Office and laboratory space will be located in the GWU Science and Engineering Hall that opened in January 2015 (http://seh.gwu.edu/about-science-and-engineering-hall). The Department of Biological Sciences offers a wide range of opportunities for collaboration, including a newly expanded ecology group, existing labs working on a range of questions with marine and fresh water organisms, and interaction with the newly created Computational Biology Institute. For further information, please go to http://biology.columbian.gwu.edu. Our location in Washington, D.C. also offers excellent opportunities for collaboration through access to the Smithsonian Institution, including the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center on the Chesapeake Bay, and a consortium of DC-area universities. Required Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD in an appropriate discipline, postdoctoral experience, and research accomplishments as demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications in high quality journals. Application Procedure: To be considered, please complete an online faculty application at the following URL http://www.gwu.jobs/postings/29405. Upload a cover letter briefly explaining your interest in the position, a curriculum vitae including a full list of publications, brief research and teaching statements, three recent publications, and the names and addresses of three referees.
