invites exceptional candidates to apply for one or more tenure-track or
tenured scientific staff positions to complement and expand existing
programs in field robotics and machine learning with applications to marine
environments. Areas of particular interest include (but are not restricted
to):
- marine robots
- multi-robot coordination
- adaptive sampling
- data exploration
- underwater manipulation
- novel actuation techniques
- simultaneous localization and  mapping
- deep learning
- computer vision
- life-long autonomy

An ideal candidate will have demonstrated research experience in marine
environments or challenging aerial and terrestrial environments. WHOI
operates sea-going vessels and a coastal research vessel, in addition to a
variety of moored, towed, remotely operated, and autonomous platforms and
vehicles. Our facilities support rapid prototyping of new instruments and
robotic systems from the laboratory to the field. In addition, the
department has active programs in coastal & ocean fluid dynamics, ocean
acoustics and polar processes.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree, postdoctoral experience, and a
record of scientific research publications in scholarly journals. WHOI
scientific staff members are expected to develop an internationally
recognized and externally funded research program. They have the
opportunity to advise graduate students and teach courses in the MIT/WHOI
Joint Program in Oceanography and Oceanographic Engineering (

Opportunities for interdisciplinary research exist through collaboration
with the other science departments (Biology, Marine Chemistry and
Geochemistry, Marine Geology and Geophysics, and Physical Oceanography; see

as well as with researchers in the broader Woods Hole scientific community.
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 for developing innovative research. Candidates hired at the junior
level will receive an initial appointment for four years with salary
guaranteed. Female and minority applicants are particularly encouraged to
apply. WHOI is sensitive to the issues of dual career families and will
work with applicants to identify and explore available options. WHOI’s
benefits package includes vacation time, an employer contribution
retirement plan, medical and dental plans, child care subsidy, flexible
scheduling, and family illness days.

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.
