The Physical Oceanography Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (http://www.whoi.edu/main/PO) invites applications for a tenure track position 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.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) seeks a Research Engineer who will work as a Principal Investigator (PI) to advance collaborative projects in science and engineering. Desired focal areas include the definition and development of technology to observe and measure biological systems in the ocean. The development of novel analytical methods that advance and synthesize our understanding of the interplay between physical and biological processes in marine ecosystems is also of interest.
The Biology Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) invites applications for two full-time tenure-track positions on their Scientific Staff. WHOI seeks outstanding candidates to complement their existing interdisciplinary strengths in biology, biological oceanography, and marine ecology (www.whoi.edu/biology). WHOI is particularly interested in applicants who conduct research in marine microbiology or harmful algae; however, exceptionally well-qualified candidates in other areas are also welcome to apply.
Applications are now being accepted for the position of Extension Program Leader with the Texas Sea Grant College Program, a non-academic center within the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University. Texas Sea Grant is a partnership between the State of Texas and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Description: The Ocean Sciences Department of the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Physical Oceanography. We seek a physical oceanographer with a research focus on physical processes within the ocean and ocean dynamics. Preferred areas of interest include modeling of coastal problems such as coastal upwelling, cross-shelf transport, shelf/slope exchange, and eastern boundary current processes, although candidates with a broader range of interests will also be considered. Experience with and interest in interdisciplinary problems such as physical influences on ocean biology, biogeochemistry or fisheries, on event or climate-related time-scales, is desirable.
The Middlebury Institute has a new opening for a full-time faculty position in Marine Science and Policy. The successful candidate will work closely with the Center for the Blue Economy and teach graduate students in the International Environmental Policy Program.
The Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts Amherst seeks talented applicants for a 12-month, non-tenure-track appointment as Extension Assistant Professor in Sustainable Fisheries & Coastal Resilience. This faculty will be based at the UMass Gloucester Marine Station in close proximity to North Shore communities and state, federal and non-governmental collaborators. Earliest appointment date is January 1, 2017.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead a well-respected environmental protection and regulatory agency charged with implementing the California Coastal Act of 1976. The Commission is seeking a dynamic leader dedicated to public service, energized by hard-work and motivated by the complex and interesting challenges encountered in protecting California’s treasured coast.
The Physical and Biological Sciences and Social Sciences Divisions at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) jointly invite applications for a tenured level professorial position shared between the two divisions working in one of the research and teaching areas listed below, with the home departments and appointment percentages dependent upon research and teaching emphases. In addition, the selected candidate will also serve as the inaugural Director of the Coastal Science and Policy Graduate Program (CSPGP).
The participant will collaborate with a team of EPA scientists on several papers and laboratory-based research efforts investigating the effects of ocean and nutrient-enhanced coastal acidification on marine and estuarine organisms, including coral, invertebrates, and fish. The research includes laboratory investigations of the interactive effects of acidification and hypoxia on a range of species and life stages of estuarine organisms. The participant may measure a variety of organism responses to acidification and other stressors, including molecular, genomic, biochemical, cellular and organism level endpoints to better understand adverse effects on biological systems and processes such as calcification. Multiple stressor effects, including nutrients, dissolved oxygen, temperature, contaminants, or sediment may be investigated.
The Institute on Research and Education in Energy, Environment, and Water (RENEW) at the University at Buffalo (UB) seeks to hire new faculty in the areas of climate change modeling including application to ice-sheet modeling and atmosphere/ocean/ice multi-physics geophysical modeling.
The Monmouth University School of Science invites outstanding applicants for the position of Endowed Professor of Marine Science. This is a position at the Associate Professor or Professor level in the Department of Biology.
