The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Division of Marine Science (DMS), within the School of Ocean Science and Technology (SOST), invites applications for two tenure-track positions in ocean engineering at the assistant professor level. This newly established Ocean Engineering baccalaureate program creates an opportunity to blend engineering approaches with DMS established expertise in marine and hydrographic sciences, and to develop innovative solutions to the exploration of the oceanographic environment. These positions offer the successful candidates the possibility to contribute to the implementation and future growth of our ocean engineering program. This program is expected to combine strengths in ocean sampling technologies, technology fabrication, and coastal hydrodynamics with innovative application of ocean engineering solutions. The successful candidates should be able to leverage collaborations with SOST marine scientists and hydrographers within DMS and the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, and computer and polymer engineers within USM’s College of Science and Technology. DMS faculty also interact with research scientists of federal agencies at Stennis Space Center, such as the Naval Research Laboratory, the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, and NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center. Applicant review will begin February 1, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
