*Scientific Staff Positions*

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic 
Institution (www.whoi.edu/gg <http://www.whoi.edu/gg>) invites 
applications for two tenure-track scientific-staff positions - one in 
*marine geophysics* and one in *climate/paleoclimate* studies. In 
*marine geophysics* we seek to complement and expand existing 
departmental strengths in geophysics (seismology, EM/MT, potential 
fields, and geodynamics), tectonics, and geochemistry; our particular 
interest is in Fluid Flow / Fluid-Mediated Mechanical Processes in 
Geologic Systems. In *climate/paleoclimate*, we seek to complement and 
expand existing departmental strengths in deep-water paleoceanography, 
high-resolution paleoclimate records, glaciology, and climate change 
impacts on coastal environments and modern ecosystems; our particular 
interests include Climate Dynamics, and Marine/Terrestrial/Cryosphere 
Climate Linkages. We seek to hire at the Assistant Scientist level but 
exceptional candidates will be considered for appointment at more senior

interdisciplinary research exist through collaborations within the 
department of Geology and Geophysics, and with colleagues in the other 
science departments, centers, and labs at WHOI
