Tenure-track Research Scientist
Physical Oceanography Department

The Physical Oceanography Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic 
Institution (WHOI) invites exceptional candidates to apply for a full-time 
exempt tenure track position on our scientific staff.  We seek to hire at the 
Assistant Scientist level; however, extraordinary candidates may be considered 
at Associate Scientist without Tenure, Associate Scientist with Tenure, or 
Senior Scientist levels.  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 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) climate variability, and 4) 
submesoscale phenomena and mixing.  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. We also seek candidates interested in the interactions 
among the ocean, the atmosphere, the land, and the cryosphere.  Candidates with 
expertise in theoretical/dynamical approaches are particularly encouraged to 
Applicants should have a doctoral degree, postdoctoral experience, and a record 
of scientific research publications in scholarly journals. 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, 

Opportunities for interdisciplinary research exist through collaborations with 
colleagues in the other science departments, centers, and labs as well as with 
researchers in the broader Woods Hole scientific community.  WHOI’s Scientific 
Staff is expected to provide for their salaries from grants and contracts.  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.  

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.  An additional 500 
affiliates are associated with the scientific endeavors of the Institution, 
many of whom are foreign nationals from the international community.  
WHOI supports a diverse and inclusive workforce, and we encourage females, 
minorities, veterans and those with disabilities to apply.  WHOI offers a
