Marine Biologist Job Description
Department of Biological Sciences at Old Dominion University invites applications for a full-time, ten month tenure-track, Assistant Professor with expertise in Marine Megafauna.
They seek candidates working on the biology, physiology, behavior, ecology, and/or evolution of megafauna inhabiting the world’s oceans, including large fishes, marine mammals, sea turtles, and seabirds. The successful candidate is expected to have strong quantitative skills and play a key role in the very popular Marine Biology Concentration Program for undergraduates. ODU borders the largest estuary in North America and is near oceanic migratory routes of many marine megafauna, with numerous research opportunities within close proximity, including the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center and Virginia Sea Grant

The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain active research programs that are externally funded, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and contribute to service in the department. Candidates who are prepared to engage in interdisciplinary research will be especially welcome. Potential teaching responsibilities include vertebrate zoology; marine vertebrate ecology, management, and conservation; and/or graduate-level courses related to the candidate’s research discipline.

Candidates must have a doctorate (Ph.D. or equivalent) in biology or related discipline. Candidates must have a strong scholarship record commensurate with experience, demonstrated potential to establish an externally funded active research program, evidence of excellence in teaching, and strong communication skills. Postdoctoral or equivalent experience is required. We are seeking candidates who share ODU’s commitment to the principle that diversity and inclusion are critical to maintaining excellence.
