Robert Nathan Ginsburg Endowed Chair in Marine Geosciences

The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences requests applications for the Robert Nathan Ginsburg Endowed Chair in Marine Geology. Although applicants are encouraged in all fields of the Marine Geology, we are particularly interested in scientists in the field of sedimentology, conducting research in the modern to unravel processes in forming or distributing carbonate sediments. Candidates for this position are expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded field and laboratory research program, supervise graduate students, and participate in the teaching mission of the Department and the School at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and interact with current faculty. In particular, the candidate will play a major role in the Comparative Sedimentology Laboratory Center for Carbonate Research established by Robert Ginsburg. The appointment is expected to be made at the Professor level, but we will consider applications from motivated and energetic younger scientists for appointment at the rank of Associate Professor.

The University of Miami offers a unique tropical location adjacent to major modern carbonate environments and the opportunity to integrate biological and physical oceanographic expertise into process-oriented sedimentological research through collaboration with faculty in the Departments of Marine Biology and Ecology and Ocean Sciences. More details of the faculty and opportunities within the Department of Marine Geosciences can be found at

Interested applicants should contact Professor Peter K. Swart, Department of Marine Geosciences, RSMAS/University of Miami, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami Fl, 33149 ( for additional information.

Applications will only be accepted electronically to Requisition #R100035651. The position will remain open until filled. Ideally, we would like the successful candidate to be in place by September 2020.
