Dear Madam/Sir,

Please be so kind as to post the following job announcement to any
appropriate electronic listings.

Many thanks, Jeff McKinnon, Assistant Professor

Announcement of Faculty Position

Appointment:    Full-time tenure-track; Assistant Professor
Starting Date:  23 August 1998

DEADLINE:  19 December 1997


The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of
Wisconsin-Whitewater invites applications for a full-time tenure-track
appointment in Aquatic Biology.  Teaching responsibilities will include an
upper division course in aquatic biology, introductory biology for
non-science majors, a core course in science and technology in society, and
possible assignment to introductory botany or zoology for biology majors;
typical teaching load is some combination of two of these courses per
semester.   In addition, the candidate is expected to establish a research
program compatible with the facilities available at UW-Whitewater, and
which can involve undergraduates.  Grant-writing to secure extramural
funding for research is expected.


A Ph.D. must be completed by starting date. The successful candidate will
have expertise in aquatic systems at the ecosystem or community level,
although specialization in other areas of aquatic biology may be
considered.  Our aquatic biologist will be an excellent teacher whose
enthusiasm in the classroom is matched by enthusiasm for involving
undergraduate students in a high-quality research program that can attract
significant extramural funding.
