The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) seeks a founding 
Director for its new Center for Marine Robotics (CMR). WHOI is a world 
leader in marine robotics, including research, development, and 
operations of all types of advanced vehicles and sensors and is now 
creating a new Center for Marine Robotics to advance its research in 
robotics and autonomous systems for science, security, and industry. The 
WHOI Center for Marine Robotics will establish a vision of the future of 
marine robotics through world class research and development, create new 
technologies, prove them in real-world operations, and apply them to 
societal problems and economic development through new private-sector 

The founding Director will build and establish the center’s research 
activities and reputation and foster partnerships with other academic 
institutions, industry and government to advance the basic knowledge of 
marine robotics and speed its application to a broad range of uses in 
the coming decades. The Center Director will report to the WHOI 
President and will work with internal and external advisory groups for 
guidance of the Center. The Director will represent the Center to its 
external partners and constituencies and convene them regularly to 
report on progress and develop new activities.
