The SOSE includes two academic divisions, Marine Science, and Coastal Sciences, and several R&D centers including: Hydrographic Science Research Center, Marine Research Center, and Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center. The Division of Marine Science is based at the NASA Stennis Space Center. John C. Stennis Space Center is a “federal city” that boasts the world’s largest concentration of oceanographers and hydrographers. Marine Science faculty benefit from close working relationships with a number of on-site federal agencies, including the Naval Research Laboratory-Stennis Space Center, the Naval Oceanographic Office, the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, the USGS and NOAA, including the National Data Buoy Center, and the National Centers for Environmental Information.

Marine Science graduate and undergraduate programs extend across traditional marine science emphasis areas in biological, physical, chemical and geological oceanography, as well as hydrographic science and undergraduate ocean engineering. Marine Science faculty and graduate programs are housed at Stennis Space Center, where the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Marine Science and the M.S. degree in Hydrographic Science are delivered. The Marine Science and Ocean Engineering B.S. degree programs are delivered at the USM Gulf Coast Campus in Long Beach, MS as well as at USM’s main campus in Hattiesburg, MS.

Three postdoctoral positions at ETH Zürich in the Environmental Physics group of Prof. Nicolas Gruber:

The Environmental Physics Group (www.up.ethz.ch) is a vibrant interdisciplinary team of researchers studying climate and oceans from regional to global scales. We currently have three postdoctoral positions open in the following areas, i.e., i) observational analyses of the ocean carbon cycle with a focus on the uptake of anthropogenic CO2, (ii) Southern Ocean modeling of heat and carbon uptake, and (iii) ocean-atmosphere interactions at the mesoscale. All three positions are guaranteed for two years, with the potential for an extension with a starting date in early 2020. The deadline for the applications is December 15, 2019, although we keep the posts open until filled.
