Apologies for any cross-postings. Please forward this message to any
qualified job-seekers you may know.
Thanks - Mark Tupper

Dear Colleagues,

A few months ago I circulated a position announcement for a Marine Resource
Manager at the Center for Marine Resource Studies on South Caicos, Turks &
Caicos Islands. We have filled this position and are now searching for a
marine ecologist to replace myself (I am moving to a position in Florida).
If you know any qualified people who fit the position description below,
please pass this on to them.

The School for Field Studies' Center for Marine Resource Studies (CMRS) is
currently advertising a position for a Resident Faculty to teach a course in
Tropical Marine Ecology and to conduct undergraduate research in marine
ecology and fisheries issues. SFS courses are accredited by Boston
University, and the academic rigor is what you would expect from upper level
undergraduate courses at Boston U. The opportunities for publishable
research here are excellent, and SFS faculty are eligible to apply for
external funding (I am currently the PI on a grant from the Darden
Environmental Trust). The fisheries here revolve around spiny lobster,
conch, and reef fish. The overall ecosystem health is very good, with
pristine reef habitats a few minutes from the Center. For more information
on the Center and the School, check out

Having been here nearly 18 months, I can say that this is a great job
opportunity, particularly for someone who has a few years postdoctoral
teaching and research experience. The salary range is $26,000-29,000 per
year (DOE) and all your living expenses are paid (you get room, board,
personal travel allowance, conference travel for presentations, and 80% of
your health insurance, plus some other useful perks). Other niceties
include the climate and some of the very best wall diving in the world,
right off your doorstep.

The full job announcement appears below. Please pass this message on to
anyone whom you feel would be interested in and qualified for this position.
Feel free to contact me for specific information on the academic program,
but please direct all application materials to the address indicated in the
position announcement. Thank you very much!
