Assistant Professorship in Oceans, Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability

Stanford University invites applications in the broad area of Oceans for a tenure-track Assistant Professor level appointment. We are searching for pioneering scholars with a demonstrated record of high-impact research and a commitment to contribute to a strong interdisciplinary university community in ocean research, education, and external impact. We invite candidates in any area of ocean science, sustainability, technology, and human dimensions to apply. Examples of areas of scholarship could include scalable ocean observing, ocean-based climate solutions, sustainable blue food systems, ocean genomics, conservation physiology, ocean data science, marine biodiversity, blue justice, and coastal social-ecological systems dynamics and adaptation, among many others.

Ideal candidates will work at the intersection of different disciplines or be interested in collaboratively combining their fundamental knowledge and expertise with those of others to carry out research that could include the fundamental discovery of ocean biodiversity and processes, understanding the role oceans play in a thriving planet, including the interaction of humans and the ocean, as well as the development of solutions for ocean health and sustainability. The candidates will be expected to contribute to and foster diversity and inclusion and will share a vision of science in service of society and planetary stewardship.

This hire contributes to the growth of the new Oceans Department within the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability (SDSS) and to the broader growth of the SDSS and scholarship in climate and sustainability across Stanford University. The Oceans Department is formed jointly by the faculty, staff and students on Stanford’s main campus and Hopkins Marine Station, in Pacific Grove. Faculty could be primarily based on either campus, with access to facilities at both locations. The primary home of new faculty will depend on faculty needs and will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
