Assistant Professor-Coastal and Estuarine Hydrologist/Sedimentologist | The University of Southern Mississippi

The Division of Coastal Sciences in the School of Ocean Science and Engineering (SOSE) at The University of Southern Mississippi invites qualified applicants for a full-time, 9-month, tenure-track faculty position in Coastal and Estuarine Hydrology or Sedimentology at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level to begin in Fall 2022. We seek a Coastal and Estuarine Hydrologist or Sedimentologist to focus on the hydrological dynamics of transitional coastal and estuarine systems and associated watershed/upland habitats. Areas of research include but are not limited to study of the interaction between and among the hydrological, ecological, geological, and physical components of nearshore systems. We seek a scientist with an interest in developing research in tides, waves, and mixing of freshwater and saltwater, sediment/particle transport processes, and watershed modeling and climate forcing impacts on these areas of research. The candidate will employ measurements in the field, simulation and mathematical modeling, laboratory experimentation, and/or remote data acquisition and analysis. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong, externally funded research program, publish in peer-reviewed literature, mentor students, participate in graduate instruction, develop courses in their area of study, and participate in University and extramural service activities. Applications currently ongoing.
