geodesy); coastal and/or watershed processes (hydrodynamics, sediment
transport, hazards); and integrating data management and visualization of
ocean observations to yield innovative public products.

Appointments will be at a range of levels (Assistant to Full Professor) and
classifications (Instructional, Research and Specialist) based on the
profile of the very best applicants. Successful candidates will have an
established record of publication in international peer-reviewed scientific
journals, or equivalent patents/products/ programs, recognized high
potential in research funding, superior communication abilities, and the
