Tenure Track Scientist – Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry

The Department of Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry (MC&G) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) invites candidates to apply to the open full-time tenure track position(s) on our scientific staff. We seek to hire one or more scientists at the Assistant Scientist level; however, qualified candidates will be considered at Associate Scientist without Tenure, Associate Scientist with Tenure, or Senior Scientist levels.*

As one of the largest and thematically diverse marine chemistry/geochemistry departments in the United States, MC&G scientists conduct research throughout the world’s open ocean, deep sea, coastal and inland environments, develop novel sensors for in-situ measurements, advance state-of-the-art analytical approaches, carry out laboratory-based experimental studies, and develop and apply computer models and remote sensing techniques. The successful candidate(s) will conduct research in any area of marine chemistry and geochemistry that complements, diversifies, and strengthens existing programs on the chemistry of the ocean and its interactions with the Earth as a whole, particularly those areas addressing the ocean’s response to anthropogenic stressors, the development of innovative ocean observing approaches, large-scale ocean chemical cycles, high-temperature geochemistry/petrology, and microbial drivers of ocean chemistry. This includes both purely fundamental scientific inquiry and applied or solutions-driven research targeting pressing societal issues related specifically or broadly to the ocean.

WHOI is located on Cape Cod in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a world-renowned center of excellence in marine, biomedical, and environmental science, with proximity to the research hubs of Boston, MA and Providence, RI. 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. WHOI is the largest private, non-profit oceanographic institution in the world, with staff and students numbering approximately 1,000. Together with an additional ~500 affiliated personnel associated with the scientific endeavors of the Institution, WHOI is home to a vibrant scientific community that has a strong international component.

WHOI offers a comprehensive benefit package that includes but is not limited to relocation assistance, medical and dental plans, childcare subsidy, housing assistance, tuition assistance, an employer contribution retirement plan, vacation time, flexible scheduling, and family illness days. The Institution also provides dual career services for assisting the applicant’s spouse or partner should they be impacted by your career decision. We have a dedicated team who will work with applicants to identify and explore available options within WHOI and the broader Woods Hole community, as well as in Boston and Providence.

*Tenure-track staff are positions equivalent to ladder-rank professorial posts.

Endowed Research Professorship in Marine Mammal Conservation

The Robert K. Johnson Center for Marine Conservation in the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science is seeking applicants for an endowed research faculty position focused on marine mammal conservation. This is a non-tenure track position targeting candidates at the Research Assistant Professor level, with the possibility of Research Associate Professor or Research Full Professor appointments for exceptional candidates. The position emphasizes research and outreach/engagement, with some teaching and advising responsibilities. Candidates will be provided 9 months of salary for their first year, after which they will be expected to raise a portion of their salary from external funding sources (research grants and/or philanthropic gifts).
Established in 2023, the Robert K. Johnson Center for Marine Conservation is a new hub for interdisciplinary, solutions-oriented marine conservation research, education, engagement, and science communication within the Rosenstiel School. This position is part of a cluster hire for endowed research professors who will help launch the new Center and accelerate its growth and impact. Our current faculty are leading scholars whose work addresses pressing marine conservation challenges to advance ocean health, human well-being, and ocean justice in the South Florida region and globally.

We seek rising leaders in marine mammal conservation, broadly defined. Candidates may draw from diverse backgrounds in the natural, social, and/or Indigenous sciences and methodologies, including but not limited to: environmental physiology, marine ecology, conservation biology, governance, law, policy, anthropology, geography, economics, or other areas. Areas of focus may include, for example: human-wildlife interactions; human/cultural uses and values; novel uses of technology, such as biologging and remote sensing; physiology; impacts of climate change, fisheries, or offshore energy exploration and development; acoustics; disease/toxicology; genetics; ethics; governance, policy, or management; highly migratory species; historical ecology; marine mammal sociality.

The successful candidate will lead cutting-edge research on salient contemporary issues with applied links to policy, management, education and/or practice. Candidates must demonstrate strong research productivity and research partnerships, evidence of potential to secure extramural funding, and commitment to teaching and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
