Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (see www.oist.jp) offers a world-class research environment with an international research community and opportunities for interdisciplinary research. Research and teaching are conducted in English. The campus is situated in a beautiful subtropical setting in Okinawa, Japan, providing opportunities to work on a range of interesting ecosystems on the island and more broadly in the Asia-Pacific region.
OIST invites applications for at least 2 new faculty positions in ecology, evolution, and related disciplines as part of its planned expansion. Scientists using theoretical or empirical approaches, and working on any system/geographic region will be considered. Excellent scholarship and creativity will be the main criteria. We are particularly interested in scholars who complement and extend existing strengths at OIST and have the potential to interact broadly with the interdisciplinary OIST community.
Successful candidates are expected to establish an active and independent program of research, to supervise Ph.D. students, to teach in the graduate program, and perform service tasks. Generous and sustained research resources will be provided, which may be supplemented with external grants. Starting date is flexible. There are also Open Faculty Positions advertised in Marine Science at OIST, applications via either route will be shared, please apply only once.
