The Department of Ocean Engineering and the Graduate School of Oceanography
at the University of Rhode Island are inviting applications for two tenure
track assistant professor positions, with anticipated start dates in Sept.

The Ocean Engineering Department is searching for applicants with a
specialty in marine robotics, autonomous systems, multi-agent systems,
navigation and machine learning, or a related field.

The Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) is searching for researchers who
will contribute to the development of vehicle platforms, sensors, or
software for automated data acquisition and intelligent processing,
sampling and sensing.

The new hires will have the unique opportunity to participate in the active
sea-going community at URI's Narragansett Bay Campus, using platforms such
as the 185-ft research ship R/V Endeavor, the exploration ship E/V
Nautilus, and the 4000m-rate ROV Hercules, and to take part in novel
telepresence outreach programs distributed by the Inner Space Center.

For application details, please see the postings at URI's job site.

Located on the east coast of the U.S. between Boston and New York, URI's
Bay Campus houses one of only six dedicated Ocean Engineering departments
in the U.S., with ongoing research in robotics, acoustics, marine
geotechnical and structural engineering, ocean renewable energy, and
coastal resilience.  The Graduate School of Oceanography's researchers at
the Bay Campus investigate local to global-scale phenomena, providing
greater breadth and depth of scientific understanding through innovative
laboratory- and field-based projects, while employing advanced real-time
communications to support ship-based ocean exploration throughout the
