Postdoc - Marine Chemistry and Engineering (open until filled)

The department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator to join their team. This is a temporary, full-time position and is eligible for benefits. The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of a one-year extension.

Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Investigator position in in-situ sensor engineering and development with a focus on coastal biogeochemical cycling and turbulent transport. The successful candidate will contribute to the development of new technological advancements for the measurement and analysis of benthic fluxes and coastal “blue carbon” cycling. Salary will be commensurate with prior experience and the successful candidate should be able to start before June 2020. There may be field and/or lab work opportunities in Massachusetts and Florida.
The institution has a top-rated postdoctoral program ( that supports a dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance programs. While the primary focus of the work will be in research, the postdoctoral investigator will have an opportunity to participate in educational and outreach activities associated with the project. The position will be based at WHOI.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Matthew Long ( Online application forms should be submitted with a cover letter, complete curriculum vitae, and a list of three references. Applications will be reviewed starting October 1st, 2019 and until the position is filled.

The candidate will have completed a Ph.D. in Oceanography, Engineering, Ecology, or a related discipline. Preference will be given to an applicant who has strong quantitative skills and interdisciplinary expertise in: (1) marine chemistry and benthic biogeochemical cycling, (2) time series and large observational dataset analysis, including a complementary skillset (e.g., programming experience or strong mathematical/statistical training), (3) fluid mechanics and turbulent transport techniques, or (4) chemical sensor and acoustics instrumentation and engineering.
