Tenure-track position – WHOI

Physical Oceanography Department – Assistant or Associate Scientist

The Physical Oceanography Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (http://www.whoi.edu/main/PO) invites exceptional candidates to apply for a tenure-track position (Assistant or Associate Scientist) on our scientific staff. The successful candidate will join a collaborative group of scientists who address a wide range of fundamental problems in ocean and climate dynamics, as well as interdisciplinary research questions, using observations, modeling, theory, and laboratory experiments. Applicants in all areas of Physical Oceanography are welcome but scientists with an interest in collection and/or interpretation of observations are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in physical oceanography or a related field, postdoctoral experience, and a record of scientific research publications in scholarly journals. We expect to hire at the untenured level but exceptionally well qualified candidates at other levels will be considered. WHOI scientific staff members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program. They have the opportunity to advise graduate students and teach courses in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program. Members of WHOI’s Scientific Staff are expected to provide for their salaries from grants and contracts, but the Institution provides salary support when no other funding is available. Women and minority applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
