Assistant Professor (Ocean Acoustics, Acoustical Oceanography) Tenure Track, Naval Postgraduate School, US

The Oceanography (OC) Department in the Graduate School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) invites applications for the position of tenure track Assistant Professor in the fields of ocean acoustics and acoustical oceanography. Appointment at the Associate Professor level may be considered under special circumstances. We are seeking candidates with core strengths in areas such as: observation, theory, and modeling of acoustic propagation and ambient noise in shallow water, deep water, and high latitude environments; Acoustic remote sensing, navigation, and communication; oceanographic, atmospheric, geological, and biological processes relevant to acoustics; and integration of acoustic and oceanographic models and data streams. Because of teaching needs a background in physical oceanography is strongly desired. The successful candidate is expected to develop an externally funded research program that spans basic to applied research areas and involves graduate students. The candidate must have a strong commitment to graduate teaching.

We are seeking a colleague to join our vibrant OC Department, which has a long history of excellence in physical oceanography, ocean acoustics, ocean dynamics, nearshore processes, ocean waves and turbulence, ocean analysis and prediction, and high latitude ocean dynamics. The OC Department has a strong research infrastructure, such as facilities and vessels located in close proximity to Monterey Bay, CA, an experienced group of technical staff, and computational resources. The OC department promotes interdisciplinary research and encourages research collaborations with a number of oceanographic institutions located around the bay, across the country, and around the world. Additional information can be found online at:


Minimum qualifications:

  • An earned doctoral degree in ocean acoustics, physical oceanography or related field that supports the OC Department’s instructional needs
  • Evidence of teaching aptitude
  • Evidence of potential to advise student theses and dissertations
  • Evidence of strong potential for research leading to scholarly publications
  • Must currently hold or be eligible for a Secret clearance
  • U.S. citizenship required

A letter of application including CV, statement of teaching and research interests and philosophy, and the names of three references should be sent by March 31, 2016 to:
