The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) invites candidates to apply
for tenure-track or tenured scientific staff within the Department of
Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering.  We're seeking candidates in
sensors, vehicles, and autonomy including machine learning and manipulation

opportunity for researchers seeking to research and develop new
technologies for use in understanding the world's oceans.  Scientific
staff have
the opportunity to advise graduate students and teach courses in the
MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography and Oceanographic Engineering (
http://www.whoi.edu/jointprogram) as well as opportunities for
interdisciplinary research exist through collaboration with the other
science departments at WHOI.
