Coastal Process Faculty Position Opening at UMaine

The School of Earth and Climate Sciences (ECS) at the University of Maine campus in Orono seeks an individual who combines computational methods with observations to interpret and predict physical coastal processes and to inform coastal management policy decisions. Observations could include but are not limited to those from paleo reconstructions, geological/geophysical investigations, estuary and wetland morphometric measurements, coastal hydrodynamic evaluations, and/or remote sensing. The successful applicant should have strong interests related to dynamic processes at the land-sea interface, coastal sediment transport, erosion hazards, beach dynamics, and/or the impact of climate change and sea-level rise on coastal communities. This position is a part of a cluster titled Coastal Community Resilience that will integrate social, biological, and physical science research dimensions. They will serve as a core faculty member in ECS with responsibilities distributed as 50% Research and 50% Teaching. They will be expected to teach courses related to coastal processes and coastal/marine geology at the introductory, advanced, and graduate levels.
