The University of Mississippi’s National Center for Computational Hydroscience and Engineering invites applications for a Research Scientist whose primary responsibility is to conduct basic and applied research, supervised or done independently, without the obligation of lecturing classes. The incumbent is expected to supervise Research Associates and Post-Doctoral Research Associates, which may include training and guidance in defining a research problem and advising research approaches. The incumbent is also expected to seek funding opportunities by submitting proposals in collaboration with a higher ranking research faculty or scientist and to serve, if appropriate, as Co-P.I. of research projects. Publish journal and conference papers, and perform some basic duties in grant administration is also a part of this position. Visit careers.olemiss.edu for more information.
