Subject: Faculty Position in Marine Science

The University of Southern Mississippi's Department of Marine Science (DMS) announces the availability of a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning July 1, 2006 (beginning of the 2006 academic year). A Ph.D. is required in an appropriate area of expertise. We seek applications in the area of remote sensing of oceanic and coastal waters. The successful candidate is expected to have a research program that includes a strong focus on coastal and oceanic variability using various sensors and platforms (e.g., SeaWiFS, MODIS, hyperspectral sensors, LIDAR). Demonstrated expertise and familiarity with radiative transfer and optical theory is a requirement. Teaching duties will include a graduate level course in ocean remote sensing. Individuals who can complement the department's existing strengths, collaborate with other research institutions at the Stennis Space Center , and take advantage of the growing community of expertise on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in LIDAR coastal surveying and LIDAR/Hyperspectral data fusion are especially encouraged to apply. DMS is a vibrant, rapidly developing, multidisciplinary academic unit with research and teaching programs in biological, geological, and physical oceanography, marine chemistry, and hydrographic science. The department is located at the John C. Stennis Space Center on the Mississippi Gulf Coast , which home to more oceanographers and hydrographers than any other location in the world. In addition to NASA research activities, the Stennis Space Center is also home to the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL-SSC), the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, NOAA's National Data Buoy Center , the NOAA Coastal Data Development Center , and the Maury Oceanographic Library, one of the country's premier oceanographic libraries. Detailed information about the department is available on the Internet at .

    Applicants must submit, preferably by electronic mail, a curriculum vita with a research plan; a statement of teaching philosophy; and names, mailing addresses, and e-mail addresses of four references to the Chair of the Remote Sensing Faculty Search Committee Stephan D. Howden at .
