The Marine Science Program at Eckerd College invites applications for one tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level to start September 2025. A Ph.D. in Marine Science, Oceanography or Plant/Algal Biology is required. We seek broadly-trained scientist-educators who are strongly committed to teaching and student/faculty research at the undergraduate level. Although the area of expertise is flexible, preference will be given to applicants with research applying molecular methods (e.g., cellular biology and genetics) to the study of marine plants, micro- or macroalgae. Fields of particular interest include: phytoplankton or macroalgae dynamics, harmful algal blooms, invasive species, and seagrass ecology. The teaching component consists of seven courses per year in a 3-1-3 format. Teaching responsibilities will include contribution to delivery of our regular introductory-level course in Biological Oceanography and an upper-level required course in Marine and Freshwater Botany, as well as a course in the applicant's area of expertise. Additionally, participation in an interdisciplinary, values-oriented general education program is required, including regular rotation in two common Core courses and a first-year seminar program. Eckerd College, the only independent national liberal arts college in Florida, has a tradition of innovative education and teaching/mentoring excellence. The successful applicant will demonstrate a well-developed research plan that is accessible to undergraduate students and will be expected to secure external funding to establish an active research program that complements existing departmental strengths. Employment will require a successful background check.


Submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interests, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and contact information for three references via https://eckerd.hirecentric.com/jobs/ . Letters of recommendation will be requested prior to an on-campus interview. Review will begin on 15 September 2024 and will continue until the position is filled.
