Thank you!

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

The Biology Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution 
(WHOI) invites
applications for one or more full-time tenure-track positions on our 
Scientific Staff. We seek
exceptional candidates to complement our existing interdisciplinary 
strengths in biology,
biological oceanography, and marine ecology 
(http://www.whoi.edu/biology). Candidates in all
areas are welcome to apply, but we are particularly interested in 
applicants who conduct
research in coastal ecosystem processes and dynamics. Areas of expertise 
can encompass
any aspect of marine biology, physiology, or ecology, and would ideally 
focus on both
characterizing long-term forcing on the coastal ecosystem (e.g., climate 
change, ocean
acidification, sea level rise, persistent human perturbation) and 
understanding/predicting the
biological response (e.g., acclimation, adaptation, distribution shift). 
We seek to hire at the
Assistant Scientist level, but exceptionally well qualified candidates 
at other levels also will be
considered.

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 
(http://www.whoi.edu/jointprogram/).
Opportunities for interdisciplinary research exist through collaboration 
with the other science
departments (Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering, Marine Chemistry and 
Geochemistry,
Marine Geology and Geophysics, and Physical Oceanography;
www.whoi.edu/main/departments-centers-labs), WHOI’s Marine Policy Center
(http://www.whoi.edu/main/mpc), and the WHOI Ocean Institutes 
(www.whoi.edu/main/oceaninstitutes),
as well as with researchers in the broader Woods Hole scientific community.
Members of the 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 scientists 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.

HOW TO APPLY:
Apply online; please visit http://jobs.whoi.edu and respond to Job 
Reference 15-12-05.
Applications should include, as a single pdf document, a cover letter, 
CV, 3-page research
statement that clearly describes your research interests, names and 
contact information for four
references, and copies of up to three relevant publications. The package 
should also be sent
separately to the chair of the Biology Department at biologychair at whoi.edu.
Review of applications will begin on 15 January 2016.
WHOI is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, M/F/D/V/EOE; 
it is also a member
of the New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (NEHERC).
