Position Announcement:
Tropical Marine Ecology Resident Faculty
The School for Field Studies
Center for Marine Resource Studies
Turks and Caicos Islands
Anticipated Start Date: September 2002
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. 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 Summary: The purpose of this fulltime, year round, residential
position is to provide high quality, modern and experiential teaching in
critical environmental and resource 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 inter-tidal 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 and management 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) and
University-level teaching experience in Tropical Marine Ecology, Tropical
Marine Resources , Reef Fish Ecology, Conservation Biology, Tropical Reef
Applied research in Queen Conch/Spiny Lobster/Bonefish Ecology; Fish and
