The University of Rhode Island is seeking to hire *two* new tenure track
faculty members specializing in marine robotics.  The positions are within
the Graduate School of Oceanography and the Department of Ocean Engineering. 
Both groups are co-located on the URI Narragansett Bay Campus.  

*Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Oceanography*
The Graduate School of Oceanography seeks researchers who will contribute to
the development of vehicle platforms, sensors, or software for automated
data acquisition and intelligent processing, sampling and sensing. Potential
application areas may include, but are not limited to, adaptive seafloor
classification and mapping, water column sampling strategies, collaborative
vehicle exploration, novel platform or sensor development, situational
awareness in complex environments, real time processing and planning with
visual or acoustic data.  The successful candidate will develop
interdisciplinary courses of interest to students at GSO and within the
Ocean Engineering Department. The successful candidate will be expected to
contribute to the graduate programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) by advising students
specializing in his/her area of study. In general, we invite individuals
with a strong commitment to research, to excellent teaching and mentorship
at the undergraduate and graduate levels. 

Visit the URI jobs website at: https://jobs.uri.edu/postings/900 to apply.  
Application review will begin Jan 7, 2015.

*Assistant Professor, Ocean Engineering*
The Department of Ocean Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track
faculty position at the Assistant Professor level.The department seeks to
add an outstanding faculty member focused on autonomous marine robotics. 
Potential applications include but are not limited to platform and/or
software development to enable sensor  driven behaviors; collaborative
autonomy; operations with heterogeneous platforms and/or payloads; long
duration deployment and autonomous underwater intervention.   The successful
candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses within the College
of Engineering; advise graduate students; develop a strong externally funded
research program; and publish refereed journal articles. The appointment is
to expected to start by September, 2016.

Visit the URI jobs website at: https://jobs.uri.edu/postings/1045 to apply.
First consideration will be given to applications received by February 12,
For more information contact the search committee chair Stephen Licht at
slicht at egr.uri.edu

The new hires will broaden URI's marine robotics program and have the
opportunity to participate in the active sea-going community of URI and the
Ocean Exploration Trust (http://www.oceanexplorationtrust.org/).  We
anticipate these hires will utilize platforms such as R/V Endeavor, E/V
Nautilus and ROV Hercules for research and technical development; and
develop outreach activities through the URI Inner Space Center
(http://www.innerspacecenter.org/) and ship-to-shore telepresence.  These
individuals will also play an important role in a newly developed Robotic
Engineering Minor in the College of Engineering.
