Position Summary

The Ship Operations unit in the College Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) invites applications for a full-time 1.00 FTE, 12-month, fixed term Port Engineer position. Reappointment is at the discretion of the Dean.

The Port Engineer supports oceanographic research for Oregon State University under the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) in the Ship Operations group. Ship Operations is responsible for the scheduling, operation, maintenance, and repair of two Oceanographic research vessels (R/V), currently the R/V OCEANUS and the R/V ELAKHA, and for the portable scientific support vans in the UNOLS West Coast Van Pool managed by OSU. The vessels and vans are used in support of research and education conducted by the College, and other educational and research institutions, through the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS). Our success is based on an interdisciplinary approach and state-of-the-art technology and facilities. CEOAS is a national leader in the study of coastal zones and ocean processes. Through field experiments, theoretical investigations, and numerical modeling and simulations, we study all aspects of ocean, land, and atmosphere processes and interactions. This position contributes to broadening the knowledge of the marine and atmospheric environments through education and research.

CEOAS is also managing the design and construction of up to three new Regional Class Research Vessels (RCRV) for the National Science Foundation. The first vessel, R/V TAANI, will replace OCEANUS as CEOAS' primary research ship (currently scheduled to begin operations in 2021).

The primary duty of the Port Engineer is managing the material readiness of the Research Vessels operated by OSU Ship Operations, the vans in the van pool, and the Ship Operations Facility in Newport, Oregon. The Port Engineer is a critical part of a small, dedicated team. The Port Engineer will perform a variety of tasks including assisting with the recruiting and selection of vessel and shore-based employees; preparing specifications for shipyard and major repair activities; specifying major vessel equipment for purchase; assisting in the preparation of budgets and proposals; implementing procedures and maintaining documentation to meet a variety of regulatory requirements including the Computer Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for the vessels and shore equipment, Safety Management System (SMS), and US Coast Guard/American Bureau of Shipping inspection and survey. A portion of the incumbent's time is spent out of the office, in hands-on activities such as crane operations and troubleshooting vessel-based engineering issues.

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is an internationally recognized leader in the study of the Earth as an integrated system that includes the human dimension. It operates numerous stateofthe art laboratories, two oceanographic research vessels, the 177foot oceangoing Oceanus, and the 54foot coastal research vessel Elakha; operates the Endurance Array of the Oceans Observing Initiative and is overseeing the construction of three new Regional Class Research Vessels for the Academic Research Fleet. The College has an annual budget of more than $50 million, with support coming from the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and other federal agencies. It has more than 100 faculty, 200 graduate students and 600 undergraduate students. Graduate programs include MS and PhD degrees in Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; Geology; and Geography; and an MS degree in Marine Resource Management. The College has undergraduate programs in Earth Sciences and Environmental Sciences, with several minors and certificate programs.
