Job description

RESEARCH POSITIONS AT SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY, UCSD
OCEANS & ATMOSPHERE SECTION

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at the University of California San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invites applications for one or more full-time Researcher positions to be funded by extramural research grants and contracts in any of the research areas listed below. The Researcher series at SIO parallels the Professor series in terms of research and service, but it carries no teaching requirements. Researchers receive nine-month appointments with 25% salary support from institutional sources. Researchers are expected to establish an externally funded research program that provides the remainder of their salary support, including an opportunity for summer salary. Researchers at SIO often obtain lecturer appointments in the SIO department and serve as graduate student advisors.

We seek motivated, broad-thinking scientists to develop vigorous research groups and provide intellectual leadership in their fields while complementing existing expertise in the Oceans and Atmosphere Section. We are interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in research as well as service toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Researcher level, but exceptionally well-qualified candidates may be considered for the Associate Researcher or Full Researcher levels.

Observational Ocean Acoustics: We seek outstanding candidates with expertise in passive and/or active ocean acoustics, bio-acoustics, acoustic sensing technology development, acoustic signal processing, environmental parameter inversions, or other closely related fields. 

Observational Oceanography: We seek outstanding candidates with expertise in observing the ocean on local, regional, basin, or global scales involving sea-going oceanography, sustained ocean observations, observational air-sea interactions, satellite oceanography, coastal oceanography, nearshore processes, natural hazards, or other closely related fields. 

The positions require a PhD in a relevant field at time of application and candidates should have a competitive record of publication, as well as evidence of the ability to conduct and fund an active research program consistent with career level. Salary will depend on the experience of the successful applicants and will be based on the UCSD pay scales.
