The Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington (APL-UW) is seeking Post-doctoral Research Associates with research interests in Oceanography, Polar Science, Remote Sensing, Environmental Acoustics and Ocean Engineering. These are full-time (100% FTE) appointments, with expected terms of two years subject to satisfactory performance and availability of funding.

Positions are not project-specific; each applicant is expected to define his/her research goals within the broad program areas of the participating APL departments: Air-Sea Interaction & Remote Sensing (AIRS), Acoustics Department (AD), Ocean Engineering (OE), Ocean Physics Department (OPD), and the Polar Science Center (PSC). All UW faculty engage in teaching, research, and service. Successful applicants must hold a recent (no more than 4-years) PhD or foreign equivalent in order to assume a post-doctoral position.

A transition to permanent staff following the completion of the post-doc appointment is possible subject to availability of funds and the demonstration of an interest in developing independent research initiatives during the course of the post-doc appointment. Opportunities to collaborate with scientists across the UW campus provide access to a broad range of expertise both during the post-doctoral research and as a permanent member of the staff.

APL-UW serves society by contributing new knowledge and technology to the national defense enterprise, industry, public policy makers, and academia. The Laboratory’s broad and deep experience in undersea science and technology is a significant reason why APL-UW is one of only five Department of Defense-designated University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) having long-term, large-scale, formal connections to the U.S. Navy.

The University of Washington is located in the greater Seattle metropolitan area, with a dynamic, multicultural community of 3.7 million people and a range of ecosystems from mountains to ocean. The University serves a diverse population of 80,000 students, faculty and staff, including 25% first-generation college students, over 25% Pell Grant students, and faculty from over 70 countries. The University promotes diversity and inclusivity among our students, faculty, and staff and the public; we seek applicants who are committed to these principles. Thus, we are strongly seeking applicants whose research, teaching, and/or service have not only prepared them to fulfill our commitment to inclusion, but have also given them the confidence to fully engage audiences in higher education from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.

The position offers salary commensurate with experience, as well as the University’s excellent comprehensive benefits package to include health/vision/dental plans including spouse, domestic partner and/or dependents.
