Tenure-track Research Scientist
Biology Department, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)


The Biology Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)
invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position on our Scientific
Staff. We seek exceptional candidates to complement our existing
interdisciplinary strengths in oceanography and marine ecology
(http://www.whoi.edu/biology).

Candidates in all areas are welcome to apply but we are particularly interested
in candidates who conduct research on the ecology and biological oceanography
of polar ecosystems, and particularly polar sea ice, including
biological-physical and biological-chemical interactions.  Areas of expertise
may focus on one or more trophic levels from microbial communities to
invertebrates (e.g., copepods, amphipods, krill) to vertebrates (e.g.,
ice-associated fish, mammals). Opportunities exist for collaboration with
faculty across the Institution working on climate change, sea ice physics, and
polar oceanography.

We expect to hire at the junior, untenured level. The successful candidate will
be expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded
research program and also will have  the opportunity to advise graduate
students and teach courses in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography
(http://www.whoi.edu/jointprogram/). While members of the Institution’s
Scientific Staff are expected to provide for their salaries from grants and
contracts, the Institution provides salary support when no other funding is
available. Candidates hired at the junior level will receive an initial
appointment for four years with salary guaranteed.

Our benefits package includes generous vacation time, a retirement dental plans,
child care subsidy, flexible scheduling, family illness days and much more.

WHOI is the largest private, non-profit oceanographic institution in the world,
with staff and students numbering about 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 the community of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a world renowned center
for marine, biomedical, and environmental science.

Applications should include a 3-page research statement, a CV with the names and
addresses of four references, and copies of up to three relevant publications.

statement, CV and relevant publications should be sent by email as pdf files to
the chair of the Biology Department at biologychair at whoi.edu. The application
review process will begin on January 2, 2012. Female and minority applicants

career scientists and will work with applicants to address them.
