Job Description

The Center for Ocean Engineering (COE) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank with starting date of August 25, 2023.

The COE at UNH seeks excellence through diversity among its administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The Center is particularly interested in creative scholars who can contribute to the leadership of COE, and make fundamental research contributions to one or more of the following focus areas: ocean renewable energy, marine structures, ocean sensing, ocean simulations, aquaculture and sustainable seafoods, coastal processes, marine geotechnics, marine robotics, air-sea interactions, and ocean acoustics.

The tenure home in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences for the successful applicant will be one of four departments: Mechanical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or Earth Sciences. Academic duties will be split between the appropriate Department and COE. The Center includes both undergraduate and graduate programs in Ocean Engineering, and oversees the facilities in the Jere A. Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory on UNH’s main campus in Durham.

COE faculty direct the Atlantic Marine Energy Center (AMEC), the Center for Ocean Renewable Energy (CORE), the Center for Sustainable Seafood Systems, the UNH School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering (SMSOE), and the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM). Access to the coastal ocean and estuary (including permitted ocean energy and aquaculture sites) are provided by a variety of research vessels at the SMSOE Judd Gregg Marine Research Complex in Newcastle, NH, and Jackson Estuarine Laboratory at Adam’s Pt. on the Great Bay Estuary, each within close proximity to UNH.

The successful candidate is expected to (1) establish and maintain a productive level of high-quality scholarly work; (2) excel as a teacher at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; (3) successfully mentor graduate research students; and (4) participate in Center, Department, College and University service activities.

Applicants are required to submit the following:
- a letter of interest
- a full curriculum vitae
- a statement of teaching
- a statement of research
- a statement of diversity, equity, and inclusion
- names and contact information of at least three references.
The target date for applications is January 22, 2023, but the search will remain open until the position is filled. Consideration of applications will begin immediately. See https://jobs.usnh.edu/postings/52621 for additional details.
Questions should be addressed to: Thomas Lippmann, Professor, Center for Ocean Engineering and the Department of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH, 03824, t.lippmann@unh.edu.
