Overview – The Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences has formed a 15-month Masters of Operational Oceanography. The new program is anchored by 8 new graduate courses that were approved by the Graduate School in Fall of 2017. The Masters program will welcome its first cohort in the summer of 2019. The course is slated to target 20 students in the initial years and then grow to a cohort of 20. We are seeking an Assistant Teaching Professor, non-tenure track, to provide an anchor teacher for the effort. Currently institutions in Indonesia have expressed interest in the program. We are seeking to fill that teaching faculty position, before the program begins to assist in development of the program and course materials.
