The Department of Environmental Sciences and the Marine and Coastal Science (MACS) program at Western Washington University (WWU) invite applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor position in Marine and Coastal Science, beginning Fall 2021.
The Marine and Coastal Science program brings together faculty, staff, and students from four academic departments housed in two colleges, in addition to Western’s marine laboratory, the Shannon Point Marine Center. The campus is located in Bellingham, Washington, a coastal community overlooking Bellingham Bay, the San Juan Islands and the Cascade mountain range.
The department is seeking applicants whose research and teaching focus on physical oceanography and transport, examining circulation and ocean transport processes including tides, currents, hydrodynamics (small and/or large scale), freshwater input, winds, and coastal processes. Candidates should be committed to a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to scholarship and teaching, and who can contribute to upper-level core classes in the MACS program (e.g., team teaching marine physical processes with biologists, chemists, geologists).
Application review begins March 1, 2021; position is open until filled.
