The primary role of the Director of Imaging Technology is to build on WHOI’s existing capabilities and develop new opportunities for leadership in advanced underwater imaging. While WHOI researchers presently develop and deploy a wide variety of cutting-edge imaging technology, our imaging expertise is dispersed across departments throughout the Institution.

We seek a technologist with excellent interpersonal communication skills and high emotional intelligence, as well as broad expertise in diverse imaging technologies, data science, data management, and archiving.
This is a regular, full-time, exempt position and is eligible for full beneﬁts. The final level of the position will be determined commensurate with the selected candidate's level of education & experience.
