*Scientific Staff Positions*

The Physical Oceanography Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic 
Institution (http://www.whoi.edu/main/PO) invites applications for one 
or more tenure track positions 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. World-class technical 
support personnel facilitate the use of a broad mix of traditional and 
innovative instruments and observational techniques to make measurements 
on all scales from microstructure up to global, and in all ocean domains 
including open-ocean and coastal regions at polar, temperate and 
tropical latitudes.We specifically seek individuals with expertise in 
these areas: 1) coastal dynamics, 2) high-latitude processes, 3) 
decadal-scale climate variability, and 4) air-sea interaction.We seek a 
balance of observational, modeling, and theoretical approaches, as well 
as interdisciplinary scientists with interests in the interplay between 
ocean dynamics and biological or geochemical processes, or in the 
interaction of the ocean with the atmosphere, the land, and the 
cryosphere. We expect to hire at the Assistant Scientist level, but 
exceptional candidates at more senior levels will be considered.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree, postdoctoral experience, anda 
strong publication record. Scientific staff members are expected to 
develop independent, externally funded, and internationally recognized 
research programs. They also have the option of advising graduate 
students and teaching courses through the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in 
Oceanography and Oceanographic Engineering 
(http://www.whoi.edu/jointprogram/). Opportunities for interdisciplinary 
research exist through collaborations with colleagues in the other 
science departments, centers, and labs at WHOI 
<http://www.whoi.edu/main/ocean-institutes>). 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, as well as significant internal funding 
opportunities for developing innovative research projects. Candidates 
hired at the junior level will receive an initial appointment for four 
years with salary guaranteed. Women and minority applicants are 
particularly encouraged to apply. WHOI is sensitive to the issues of 
dual career families and will work with applicants to address these. Our 
benefits include vacation time, flexible scheduling, family illness 
days, medical and dental plans, child care subsidy, and an employer 
contribution retirement plan.

WHOI is the largest private, non-profit oceanographic institution in the 
world, with staff and students numbering approximately 1,000.Its mission 
is to advance our understanding of the ocean and its interaction with 
the Earth system, and to communicate this understanding for the benefit 
of society.The Institution is located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a 
world-renowned center of excellence in marine, biomedical, and 
environmental science.
