Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is currently seeking seasonal Engineering Assistants to join the Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering Department for the 2020 summer period (May - August 2020). These are temporary, casual, non-exempt positions and are not eligible for benefits. The internal working titles for these positions could be Engineering Assistant I/II/III. The final level of these positions will be determined commensurate with the selected candidate's level of education and experience.
Summer hiring positions provide technical assistance to mechanical and electrical design engineers by performing maintenance, testing, and repairs to electrical or mechanical systems.
Engineer Assistant I Level:
With close supervision, uses established procedures to perform prescribed tasks related to the engineering support of oceanographic research.
Engineer Assistant II Level:
With some supervision, applies acquired knowledge of established procedures to the assembly, testing, and use of equipment in support of engineering projects related to oceanographic research.
Engineer Assistant III Level:
With little supervision, applies a broad knowledge of established procedures to the assembly, testing, or calibration of equipment developed and used in support of engineering projects related to oceanographic instrumentation.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is currently searching for two Software Engineers to join the Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering Department. These are regular, full-time, exempt positions and are eligible for benefits. The level of this role will be determined by the selected canddiates level of education and experience. The candidates will be hired into a Engineer I, II or Research Engineer role.
The Deep Submergence Laboratory (DSL) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is looking to hire a software engineer to join our team. DSL designs, builds, and operates underwater robots with unique science-focused capabilities for the ocean sciences community. Our submersibles are used around the world in some of the deepest parts of the ocean to survey and collect scientific samples and data. Our development and operational goals are focused on providing the tools and assets necessary for users to investigate the world’s oceans. More information can be found at: https://ndsf.whoi.edu/
The Software Engineer will work directly with the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Sentry capable of exploring the ocean down to 6,000 meters. The AUV Sentry program requires engineering support for both on-shore engineering and at-sea field operations. At-sea field operations can require significant travel. Candidates will be expected to spend up to 100 days a year in the field, total time away will not be consecutive.
With some supervision to achieve assigned objectives, the Engineer II position identifies and participates in engineering projects in support of scientific and research activities through the demonstration of one or more specialized skills. This position will be expected to work on tasks requiring creativity and independent thinking, along with a proven understanding of fundamental research and engineering principles.
With little supervision, the Research Engineer position will work creatively and independently to establish objectives, meet deadlines, and complete difficult engineering assignments by demonstrating full competency in one or more engineering areas; assists substantively in planning technical aspects of experiments, as well as design, testing, and use of major system components.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) (http://www.whoi.edu/) has announced a new initiative to accelerate the pace of advanced technology development in support of ocean science and exploration. The Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering department is seeking to recruit more of the world’s best to invent and develop cutting edge technology in the service of global ocean science. WHOI provides a superb environment for close collaboration between science and technology, with unparalleled access to the ocean, broad intellectual freedom, and an international reputation for excellence. We are seeking to hire at least one candidate from technology disciplines broadly relevant to ocean science including engineering, chemistry, biology, ocean physics, geology computer science or other relevant fields. We are specifically looking for candidates who will develop and run independent applied research programs that are synergistic with the mission of the Institution, to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is currently searching for an Analog Engineer for our open Engineer I/II or Research Engineer position in the Applied Ocean Physics & Engineering Department in our Advanced Engineering Laboratory. Join our robotics group designing underwater communications systems. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is a world leader in all things subsea, from groundbreaking ocean science and discoveries, to cutting edge subsea technology for the government. Here at WHOI you will work with world class scientist and engineers in a dynamic fast paced environment, to contribute to science and technology that makes a difference in our world.
