Full Text of JOE Listing:
As part of a new interdisciplinary initiative in coastal zone management and engineering, Stony Brook University invites applications for two, tenure-track positions at the level of assistant professor, one in coastal engineering and one in environmental economics or closely related fields. Candidates for the position of coastal engineering are expected to have engineering and scientific expertise in nearshore waves; sediment transport; shore processes; wave-structure interactions; coastal structures; coastal hazards; or wind, tidal and wave energy. A professional engineer's license, or the potential to obtain one, is preferred.

The successful candidate in environmental economics should have expertise that cuts across the traditional boundaries of academic disciplines with experience applying the tools of economics to address environmental problems in the coastal zone. Candidates who have a focus on the costs and benefits of environmental policies, their human impacts and the economic impacts on ecosystem services will be preferred.

These positions are part of an interdisciplinary faculty cluster aimed at addressing some of society's most vexing challenges in the coastal zone through collaboration of natural and social sciences. Successful candidates are expected to develop an independent, internationally recognized research program, supervise student research and teach courses related to their field. Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant field by the beginning of the appointment. Applicants must have demonstrated: outstanding research strength, and have a strong disciplinary background; and strong experimental and/or theoretical skills. Candidates with exceptional qualifications may be considered at a higher academic rank.

Application review will begin on April 1, 2013, and continue until the positions are filled.

Electronic submission of materials is highly preferred. For a full position description and/or application procedures, visit (Ref. # F-7733-13-01).

Stony Brook University/SUNY is an affirmative action, equal opportunity educator and employer.
