Tenure Track Scientists – Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering
The Department of Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution – www.whoi.edu/aope – invites exceptional candidates to apply for one or more tenure track or tenured scientific-staff positions. We have two different opportunities for which we are seeking candidates, both of which are explained below.
Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering is looking to complement and expand existing programs in coastal & ocean fluid dynamics, ocean acoustics, and deep submergence, with core strengths in nearshore, estuarine, and coastal fluid dynamics, sediment transport, and morphodynamics; bio-physical interactions; mixing; acoustical propagation and scattering; vehicles, sensors, and autonomy; and polar processes. Applicants are sought in all supported areas, with particular opportunities in robotics, sensors, coastal remote sensing, and surf zone processes.
We are also looking for qualified candidates to initiate new and expand existing programs in field robotics and machine learning with applications to marine environments. Areas of particular interest include but are not restricted to: marine robotics; machine learning; simultaneous localization and mapping; multi-robot coordination and path planning; adaptive exploration and sampling; data exploration and visualization; underwater manipulation; novel actuation techniques; computer vision; life-long learning and autonomy; and scene understanding.
