The University of Maine invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Marine Science and Economics, to start August 1, 2013. The position will be split evenly between the School of Economics and the School of Marine Sciences. The University of Maine is a distinguished leader in marine resource economics and policy research. The successful applicant will be expected to develop and maintain a rigorous interdisciplinary research program, to obtain external research support, to engage actively in the education of graduate and undergraduate students, and to participate in public and University service. The applicant will work collaboratively with faculty from the social and natural sciences, supplementing existing research and teaching programs. Current research tends to emphasize computational modeling of coupled natural and human systems in fisheries and other marine resources, institutional approaches to the study of the commons and complex adaptive systems. The applicant will teach in the academic programs of the School of Economics (www.umaine.edu/soe) and the Marine Policy/Dual Degree program within the School of Marine Sciences (www.umaine.edu/marine). Both schools place a strong emphasis on good teaching and, in addition, expect research to be brought into the classroom. The applicant will be expected to develop active professional relationships with academics, industry, government and other stakeholders in the marine area.
Minimum Qualifications: Qualified applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in economics, resource economics, or a closely related field. The successful applicant will have experience and training in the application of quantative and qualitative approaches to economic and social aspects of marine resource issues. Areas of experience and training appropriate for the position include bioeconomic or coupled systems modeling, institutional analysis especially with regard to the commons, economic impact assessment, and non-market valuation methods and agent-based and spatial modeling. A working knowledge of evolution, ecology and population biology will be considered very helpful but not essential.
To Apply: Applications should include a full CV, a selection of up to five reprints, a list of four references, and statements of research, service and teaching goals that demonstrate capacity to perform the above functions.
