Physical Oceanographer

RBR creates instruments to measure the blue planet. From the ocean abyss to the polar ice cap, our sensors track water parameters – temperature, depth, salinity, dissolved gases, pH, and many others. With design and manufacturing centrally located in Ottawa, our team works in a fast-paced, dynamic atmosphere to serve customers from all corners of the globe.

RBR is growing rapidly, and is looking for a physical oceanographer to complement our team. As a customer-facing role within the research and development team at RBR, you will be responsible for “level two” support: queries and discussions that require in depth data analysis, expert product knowledge, and deployment suggestions.  In particular, understanding of physical oceanography, water quality measurements, and CTDs will be critical. Opportunities for science collaboration and fieldwork are also a part of the job, particularly for testing and evaluating new sensors and instruments.

Integrating our products with third-party and first-party platforms (Argo floats, autonomous surface vessels, wire guided profilers, gliders, etc.) is becoming increasingly important for RBR.  Becoming the resident expert in these integrations is a significant part of this role, specifically working with collaborating oceanographic scientists during development and evaluation.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Oceanographic or scientific/technical background, with broad deployment experience
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • Data analysis expertise, particularly for CTD processing (Matlab, R, python)
  • Extensive customer-facing experience
  • Willingness to travel occasionally (scientific meetings, trade shows, customer site visits) primarily within North America

As part of your application, we ask that you please prepare a cover letter that references RBR and why you feel you’d be a fit with us. We offer competitive salaries, generous holidays, a comprehensive health plan, a private RSP fund with matching contributions, and a very flexible work environment.

You’ll have a great set of colleagues and the chance to make a difference to the future of the globe – come join us!
