Faculty Position – Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at the University of California San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invites faculty applications for the positions listed below. We seek motivated, broad-thinking scientist-educators to establish vigorous research programs and provide intellectual leadership in their field while complementing existing expertise at Scripps, other UCSD departments, and nearby institutions. SIO is a world renowned center of marine research with approximately 200 principal investigators leading research programs on all aspects of earth, ocean, biological and atmospheric sciences. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The department is interested in candidates who have demonstrated commitment to excellence by providing leadership in teaching, research or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

Observational Physical Oceanography: We seek outstanding candidates with interests in Observational Physical Oceanography on the basin and global scale. Topics of interest include but are not limited to ocean circulation, the distributions and transport of heat and salt, and the role of the oceans in climate. The revolutionary impact and future potential of autonomous ocean observing systems is a particular focus. The successful candidate may be interested in large-scale observational programs, such as Argo and the Global Drifter Program, which have been created and grown under Scripps leadership.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach classes, supervise research at both the graduate and undergraduate level and contribute to leadership on issues of equity and diversity. The position requires a PhD degree in a relevant field and a competitive record of publication, as well as evidence of the ability to conduct and fund an active research program consistent with the opportunity to have done so at this career level. The successful candidate will also demonstrate the highest standards of scholarship and professional activity, or for junior scholars to have the potential thereof. Applicants for non-tenured positions are expected to have potential for excellence in research, teaching, mentoring and service.
