The College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (CFOS) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks invites applications for an assistant professor in mariculture. This tenure-track position will be located in Kodiak, Alaska.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach core courses and/or develop specialty mariculture-related courses for the graduate and undergraduate academic programs, develop a vigorous externally-funded mariculture-related research program, and mentor graduate students.

  • A curriculum vitae, and
  • Contact information for at least three professional references, including address, email, and phone number.
