Alumni Job: Assistant Professor of Bio/ Kent Island Field Station Director

Assistant Professor of Biology and Director of the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island

Bowdoin College, located along the coast in Brunswick, Maine, invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor of Biology and Director, Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island beginning Fall 2017. The successful candidate will play a leadership role in fostering a thriving intellectual environment at Bowdoin College’s Scientific Station on Kent Island (https://www.bowdoin.edu/kent-island/). The station, located on Kent Island, New Brunswick, Canada (44 35’N, 66 45’W), was established in 1935 as a research facility and sanctuary for nesting seabirds, and has been a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations since 1988. Population, community and behavioral ecologists are encouraged to apply and applicants should demonstrate that their research takes advantage of this unique island setting.

We are particularly interested in candidates who are committed to the instruction and support of a diverse student population and who will enrich and contribute to the ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic diversity of the Department and College faculty.

The summer research season typically includes 6-10 fellowship students conducting research during the summer months under the guidance of the Director, an Assistant Director  – the search for whom will be led by the successful candidate – and a vibrant community of international researchers. We especially welcome applications from those with quantitative strengths in, for example, statistical analyses, demographic modeling, or the use of genomic and bioinformatic approaches to ecological questions. The yearly teaching load on the main campus includes a core course in general ecology, participation in introductory biology or non-majors biology and an upper level course in Biology. Bowdoin faculty are committed to providing research opportunities for undergraduate students and the successful candidate will be expected to mentor student-led independent projects and to actively encourage student involvement in research.

Excellent opportunities exist for disciplinary and interdisciplinary interactions and collaborations with Bowdoin faculty in Biology, Earth and Oceanographic Science, and Environmental Studies along with other departments and programs at the College, and for synergies with Bowdoin’s Marine Lab and Coastal Studies Center on Orr’s Island ME. The Coastal Studies Center, a 20-minute drive from main campus, is a 114 acre facility that includes over 100 acres of coastal forest, a marine laboratory with flowing seawater, access to 5 miles of coastline, and a small boat fleet to access Casco Bay and the greater Gulf of Maine.

Ph.D. required; postdoctoral experience preferred. Bowdoin College offers strong support for faculty research and teaching. We recognize that recruiting and retaining faculty may involve considerations of spouses and domestic partners. To that end, where possible, the College will attempt to accommodate and respond creatively to the needs of spouses and partners of members of the faculty.
