Research Professors: Marine Biogeochemistry, Physical Oceanography & Marine Robotic Engineering
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University (HBOI) seeks applicants for three leadership Research Professor positions anticipated to begin in 2012. These positions build on HBOI’s history of integrating science, engineering, technology, education, and community engagement to explore and understand our oceans, the opportunities they present, and the issues they face. These positions will have the rank of Research Professor at HBOI, with the successful candidates also eligible for Affiliated Professor appointments in FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Sciences (http://www.science.fau.edu/) and/or College of Engineering and Computer Science (http://www.eng.fau.edu/).
