The Division of Science & Environmental Policy (SEP) at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant/associate professor level to begin in Fall 2014. We seek applicants with a demonstrated commitment to teaching and research, interdisciplinary training in marine conservation biology, and a record of successful research grant proposal writing.

CSUMB is a comprehensive public university committed to serving the diverse people of California, especially the working class, historically under-served, and low-income populations. The university values an educational environment of cultural and linguistic diversity and gender equity; ethical reflection and practice; effective and experimental use of technologies as resources for people and catalysts for learning; and the integration of cross-disciplinary models enabling students, faculty and staff to engage in innovative instruction and coordinated service learning. The curriculum is organized around student learning outcomes. The campus is located on Monterey Bay, 100 miles south of San Francisco.

The Division of Science & Environmental Policy at CSUMB now offers B.S. degrees in Marine Science, Biology, and Environmental Science, Technology and Policy, as well as a B.A. in Environmental Studies. An M.S. is also offered in Applied Marine and Watershed Science, with a M.S. in Marine Science available through nearby Moss Landing Marine Laboratories. These programs all emphasize the critical thinking and technical skills necessary to develop workable solutions for complex environmental problems. Unique in their approach to linking marine science to management and decision-making, the B.S. in Marine Science and the M.S. in Applied Marine and Watershed Science provide students with active learning and applied research in a wide variety of marine systems. Students evaluate and solve environmental problems using scientific, technical, and analytical skills in preparation for leadership roles in which they contribute to effective policy solutions based on an understanding of the interactions between humans and their biological and physical surroundings.

Though young, the CSUMB Marine Science Program is well equipped to support teaching and field research with a variety of assets including research vessels, small boats, scientific diving and a wide array of instrumentation. These capabilities and the great diversity of marine habitats within minutes of campus, have made Monterey Bay an ideal living laboratory for CSUMB faculty and student research.
