Mary Derrickson McCurdy Visiting Scholar

MARY DERRICKSON
McCURDY VISITING SCHOLAR
AT THE DUKE UNIVERSITY MARINE LABORATORY, BEAUFORT, NC

Recharge while on sabbatical at the Duke Marine Laboratory.  The Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University invites you to apply to become the Mary Derrickson McCurdy Visiting Scholar resident at the Marine Laboratory in Beaufort, on the North Carolina coast. The McCurdy Scholar will engage in the intellectual life of the Marine Laboratory, including research, teaching, and mentoring in an intimate world-class multidisciplinary research and teaching environment.   Our ideal candidate for the position is a gregarious natural or social science scholar in the field of Ocean Science, broadly construed. We strive to understand environmental processes and human behavior broadly framed (e.g., social-ecological systems, human dimensions of natural resource management, human-environment interactions). We are particularly interested in individuals with insights or new perspectives on conservation and enhancement of the environment and its natural resources and especially with clear or potential applications to society. The McCurdy Scholar carries an appointment as Visiting Research Professor appropriate to the rank of the successful applicant. The term of the appointment is for one or two semesters (preferably the nine-month academic year), with the possibility of expansion to one full year. The appointment includes funds that may be used to augment salary, offset living expenses and enable research.   

Interested individuals should submit a single file with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, summary of research interests, reprints of three recent papers and names of three references.   Send to:
