Multiple Tenure-Track Positions Announcement - Assistant to Full Professor
Coastal Ecosystem Dynamics Group
University of Florida

The Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment (ESSIE) at 
the University of Florida invites applications for multiple tenure-track 
faculty positions at Ast/Aso/Full Professor levels. Candidates must hold a 
doctoral degree in an appropriate field of science or engineering. We seek 
creative, highly productive scientists who have demonstrated innovative 
research in the areas of coastal hydrodynamics, coastal geotechnical 
engineering, coastal ecosystem ecology, and/or coastal ecological engineering. 
The successful candidates will complement an existing group of faculty that is 
developing the ESSIE Coastal Ecosystem Dynamics Center and graduate program to 
investigate the complex dynamics of natural and manmade coastal systems. The 
review of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until all 
positions are filled.

Coastal ecosystems sit at the interface between marine and terrestrial 
environments, and their structure and function are controlled by complicated 
interactions between hydrodynamic forces, geotechnics of natural and man-made 
systems, and organisms that biogenically build coastal reefs and wetlands. The 
mission of the Coastal Ecosystem Dynamics program is to conduct research into 
the diverse challenges facing coastal ecosystems, infrastructure and 
communities, while preparing graduate students to be leading engineers, 
scientists, and scholars in the face of coastal change. More information about 
the CED program can be found at:

Preference will be given to candidates with a research focus in one of three 
areas: 1) coastal turbulence and transport processes, 2) coastal ecohydrology, 
ecological engineering and ecosystem resilience, and 3) coastal geotechnical 
engineering. Candidates must demonstrate a strong interest in and record of 
interdisciplinary research that aligns with the mission of the Coastal 
Ecosystem Dynamics Center. Research approaches can include theoretical, 
numerical, or experimental methods. The successful candidates will be expected 
to build a strong externally funded research program; provide professional 
service; teach and develop courses at the undergraduate and graduate level; and 
develop research collaborations and synergistic activities with other faculty 
members of ESSIE, the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, and the 
University of Florida.

To be considered, interested candidates should apply through the University of 
Florida by visiting, referencing 
requisition number 495161, and attaching:
- Current CV
- Statements of teaching and research plans (2-3 pages each) with a focus on 
how those plans will support college, school, and Coastal Ecosystem Dynamics 
Center initiatives,
- Up to three representative journal articles (co-) authored by the applicant,
- Names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of five references.

The University of Florida is an equal opportunity employer, women and 
minorities are encouraged to apply. The "government in the sunshine" laws of 
Florida require that all documents relating to the search process, including 
letters of application/nomination and reference, be available for public
