Oceaneering is a global provider of engineered services and products, primarily to the offshore energy industry. We develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world’s premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also use applied technology expertise to serve the defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries.
Oceaneering Technologies (OTECH) performs a wide range of engineering services and products for unique marine systems for military and commercial customers. OTECH innovates wherever practical rather than inventing making it “faster to field” than others in its industry; the typical development/delivery cycle for complex mechanical, hydraulic, electrical systems is often completed in 12-15 months. Technical capabilities span the entire engineering spectrum. These skills have been demonstrated in successfully delivered systems, including Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs); Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs); saturation diving systems; surface and sub-surface vehicle launch and recovery systems; advanced offshore cranes; and life support systems.

Call for applications for election of one associate into the associate position and corresponding employment position of a postdoctoral researcher, for a limited period of time, in the scientific area of the Humanities, the field of Archaeology, in the Croatian Science Foundation’s project IP-2020-02-3420 „
Numeric Reconstruction in Maritime Archaeology (NEREAS)“, in the Department of Archaeology;
The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), on behalf of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), has a requirement for a study titled “Of National Significance: The Gulf’s 19th-Century Shipwrecks”. The primary purpose of this requirement is to assist BOEM in preparing the materials to nominate twelve (12) 19th-century shipwrecks to the National Register of Historic Places. The estimated period of performance for this requirement is thirty-six (36) months from date of award.
The postdoctoral researcher position is funded by the European project PROCRAFT (PROtection and Conservation of Heritage AirCRAFT. The general objective of this project is to develop innovative procedures and treatments for the protection of WWII planes and/or parts in aluminum alloys (mainly Duralumin).
The aim of this postdoctoral position is to characterize the protective properties of new conservation-restoration coatings by comparing them to the protections currently used in conservation-restoration. It will also require to characterise the original materials (painted aluminium alloys) in order to adapt the experimental method to the different cases encountered.
The work will be carried out mainly by the application of electrochemical techniques usually applied for the evaluation of organic coatings on metals in the presence or absence of corrosion inhibitors, before or after ageing. It will also involve the use of characterization methods (observation and analysis) of metallic materials and original coatings (painting). This part of the work will be carried out on a corpus of ancient aeronautical aluminum materials (WWII).
This work will be carried out in close collaboration with specialists in heritage materials and scientific professionals in conservation-restoration, also directly involved in this project.

Södertörns högskola (Södertörn University) in south Stockholm is a dynamic institute of higher education with a unique profile and high academic standard. A large proportion of the university staff holds doctorates and there is a strong link between undergraduate education and research. Södertörn University has around 11 000 students and 840 employees. Undergraduate and postgraduate education and research are conducted in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Technology and Education. Our site is in Flemingsberg. Södertörn University is an equal opportunities employer.
Archaeology focuses on human beings and their culture and society, from ancient times to the present day. Using material remains as their primary source material, archaeologists interpret what life was like at different times and in different cultural contexts. Archaeology at Södertörn University also emphasises a critical perspective and the importance of relating archaeology to current societal issues. Archaeological research is thus not only about the past, but entails equal emphasis on the understanding of people as cultural beings. One specialisation offered at Södertörn University is maritime archaeology, as the MARIS research institute is able to support new projects in a range of ways.

The Naval History & Heritage Command (NHHC), located on the historic Washington Navy Yard in Washington, DC is the official program of the Depart of the Navy. The NHHC is home to the Underwater Archaeology Branch (UAB) which serves to manage, research, conserve, and interpret the Navy’s collection of sunken and terrestrial military craft. This includes over 2,500 shipwrecks and 17,000 aircraft wrecks dispersed around the globe.
The NHHC Underwater Archaeology Branch serves four main functions:
Public Education & Outreach – Public education and outreach is a fundamental component of NHHC’s mission to promote the Navy’s heritage and preserve its sunken military craft. UAB accomplishes this through disseminating information through social media, publications, reports, presentations, lectures, and tours. Additionally, the Branch maintains a robust internship program for undergraduate and graduate students interested in submerged cultural heritage.
Artifact Conservation & Curation – All historic artifacts recovered from an underwater environment require some form of conservation and a proper curation environment to remain in a stable condition. UAB’s Archaeology & Conservation Laboratory is directly responsible for NHHC’s artifact collections that originate from sunken military craft. In addition to treating and curating artifacts, the Laboratory manages a loan program of over 11,000 artifacts.
Archaeological & Historical Research – Archaeologists at UAB oversee, collaborate, and conduct archaeological and historical research on sunken and terrestrial military craft. Research projects include remote sensing surveys, site identification assessments, excavations, and scientific data analyses. This research extends from the earliest beginnings of the Navy, during the American Revolution to losses from World War II and beyond. Through archaeology, UAB can interpret naval history and further convey the story of the American sailor.
Cultural Resource Management & Policy Development – The Navy’s ship and aircraft wrecks represent a fragile collection of non-renewable resources that, in addition to their historical value, are often considered war graves may contain unexploded ordnance or environmental hazards. To ensure preservation of these sites, UAB develops, coordinates, reviews, and implements related policy on behalf of the NHHC. This includes the maintenance of an archaeological permitting program through the Sunken Military Craft Act, coordination with federal, state, local, and international agencies regarding sites and projects, and formation of a sunken military craft inventory.
Interns can expect to work on tasks such as: Preparing, undertaking, or following up on field investigations; Conducting extensive archaeological and historical research at local and national archives; Preparing, reviewing, editing or preparing reports; Conserving and cataloging artifacts; Assisting with artifact inventory, management, and loan programs; Developing a photo database of past field projects; Participating in public outreach and education initiatives such as tours, lectures, and presentations; Creating public outreach and education materials such as blogs and brochures.
