The School for Field Studies, Center for Marine Resource Studies at the
Turks and Caicos has the 2 following resident faculty positions open the
(2nd position follows the first listing below):

Marine Resource Management Resident Faculty
CENTER OBJECTIVE: The SFS Center for Marine Resource Studies is dedicated
to developing scientifically sound, culturally and politically acceptable
and economically feasible  recommendations that will lead to the
sustainable use, development and stewardship of the marine and terrestrial
resources of the Turks and Caicos Islands, with specific focus on South
Caicos. Our academic program is taught within a case study format and
includes three field lecture courses namely marine ecology, resource
management and policy and socio-economics.  A fourth course covers an
introduction to the planning and conduct of  field research.
POSITION RATIONALE/SUMMARY: The purpose of this residential field position
is to teach critical environmental issues through a problem-solving
approach, to participate in the development and implementation of an
interdisciplinary curriculum, to participate in the Centerís 5-year
research program, to oversee faculty-designed student research projects
that address the resource management needs of local clients and partners
and the 5-year research program, and to ensure the expeditious publication
of research results.  This position is lead faculty for the course:
Principles of Resource Management, which examines the various principles,
practices, disciplines, tools and information required to understand and
manage natural resources. This component of the academic program makes the
link between Environmental Policy and Socio-economic Values and Marine
Ecology. This course covers a wide range of disciplines but focuses on the
management of exploited marine resources in the TCI, specifically the
sustainable harvesting  of lobster, conch, reef fish and the conservation
of coral reefs that play a key role in an expanding tourism industry.
Because Center staff and students live on site, our faculty get to know
both the staff and students on a level not often achieved in a conventional
university setting.
POSITION REQUIREMENTS: Scientifically relevant Ph.D. in Marine Resources
Management, Stock Assessment, Fisheries Management.
Applied/Field research experience in Marine Protected Areas, Stock
Assessment and Monitoring, Harvest Monitoring, Policy Development and
Improvement, Community Involvement.  Familiarity with: Coral Reef
Conservation, Marine Fish and Invertebrate Populations, Artificial Reef and
Habitat Enhancement, Environmental Impact Assessments.
University-level teaching experience in Population Dynamics, Resource
MISC. REQUIREMENTS: Experience living/working in the Caribbean, Certified
diver with underwater research experience.

Tropical Marine Ecology Resident Faculty
CENTER OBJECTIVE: To develop scientifically and environmentally sound,
culturally and politically acceptable and economically feasible policy
recommendations that will lead to the sustainable use, development and
stewardship of the marine and coastal resources of the Turks and Caicos
Islands, in particular for South Caicos in the light of a possible increase
in tourism to the island.
POSITION SUMMARY: The purpose of this fulltime, year round, residential
position is to provide high quality, modern and experiential teaching in
critical environmental issues in an interdisciplinary curriculum and to
participate fully  in the  implementation of an interdisciplinary  multi-
year research plan that addresses these issues. The publication of research
results is promoted. This position is lead faculty for the course: Tropical
Marine Ecology, which examines the interactions of living and non-living
components of tropical marine environments and how these shape/form
different ecosystems. This course focuses mainly on the marine  environment
from the intertidal areas of South Caicos to its shelf edge, but will have
some coastal zone ecology and planning in respect of tourism development.
Basic ecological principles will be used to explain the interdependencies
of species, populations, communities and ecosystems. Emphasis will be
placed on the nutrient flow and energy cycles within and between ecosystems
with references to the potential consequences of human alterations of the
environment. Today's problems surrounding marine resource exploitation will
be addressed by looking at the limiting factors of biological productivity.
The impacts of onshore tourism development on the coastal and reef
environments, and on exploited marine resources, will also form part of the
teaching and research agendas.
POSITION REQUIREMENTS: Scientifically relevant Ph.D.(preferred) or Masters
and University-level teaching experience in Tropical Marine Ecology,
Tropical Fisheries, Reef Fish Ecology, Conservation Biology, Tropical Reef
Biology, Ecology
Applied research in Queen Conch/Spiny Lobster/Bonefish Ecology; Tropical
Coastal Zone Ecology; Policy Formulation
Misc. Requirements: Experience living/working in the Caribbean region, GIS
experience and Certified diver with underwater research experience.
