LABORDE CHAIR APPLICATION GUIDELINES

The Office of Sea Grant Development at Louisiana State University is accepting nominations for the John P. Laborde Endowed Chair for Sea Grant Research and Technology Transfer and Visiting Professor for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. Nominees should be either nationally or internationally recognized for contributions in an area of marine/coastal research, technology transfer, education, or business development. Academically affiliated nominees must hold either the rank of full professor or its equivalent and they will carry similar faculty rank with the Chair appointment. Appointment duration can vary from as few as six months to a maximum of one year; we particularly encourage nominations of individuals eligible for either one-half or full year sabbatical from their institutions.

The appointee will perform research at Louisiana State University that either directly supplements or complements the activities of the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program or other sponsored research, technology transfer, or education projects administered by the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program. Scholarly work in either research or teaching would also be encouraged within appropriate discipline-based academic departments at Louisiana State University.

Those interested in nominating individuals to the Chair should confirm a nominee’s interest and submit a packet including a nomination letter, the nominee’s curriculum vitae, a summary of nominee’s expertise/interests, an outline of proposed research activity, preferred appointment dates, and salary requirements. Although this opportunity is open until filled, we plan to review nominations after 1 November 2008.

Nominations should be submitted to:

Dr. Charles “Chuck” Wilson, Executive Director
Office of Sea Grant Development
239 Sea Grant Building
Louisiana State University
Baton Rouge, LA 70803
