[Met-jobs] Two positions available in Arctic Ocean modelling at University of Oxford, UK

From Helen Johnson <Helen.Johnson@earth.ox.ac.uk>
To met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Wed, 5 Oct 2011 21:30:29 +0100

We require two post-doctoral researchers in the field of Arctic Ocean modelling.  The closing date is Friday 4 November, and interviews will be held in late November/early December. Please see details below.

--------------------------------

Post-doctoral Research Assistant

Numerical modelling of ocean and sea-ice dynamics in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago

University of Oxford
Department of Earth Sciences
Grade 7 (£29,099 - £35,788)
Full time, fixed term 36 months
Closing date: 4 November 2011
Job reference: DG/011/017

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position focused on ocean and sea-ice processes at high latitudes. The post-holder will investigate the dynamics that govern the flow through a key Arctic Ocean gateway, by conducting a series of numerical modelling experiments.

Candidates should have research experience, including a PhD, in Physical Oceanography or a closely related branch of Physics, Mathematics or Earth Sciences. They should have experience of numerical modelling, combined with an interest in dynamical theory and in ocean and sea-ice observations.

The post is based in the Department of Earth Sciences. The post-holder will also interact with scientists in the sub-department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, and with a wide range of UK and international project partners.

The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), for a period of three years, and is available from 1st January 2012.

Post-doctoral Research Assistant

Arctic Ocean Modelling

University of Oxford
Department of Earth Sciences
Grade 7 (£29,099 - £35,788)
Full time, fixed term 36 months
Closing date: 4 November 2011
Job reference: DG/011/016

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position focused on Arctic ocean dynamics. The post-holder will set up a process model of the Arctic ocean and sea ice system. They will use it to investigate the dynamics that govern the present day Arctic ocean circulation, as well as the mechanisms by and timescales on which a seasonally-ice-free Arctic will respond to surface forcing.

Candidates should have research experience, including a PhD, in Physical Oceanography or a closely related branch of Physics, Mathematics or Earth Sciences. They should have experience of numerical modelling, combined with an interest in dynamical theory and in ocean and sea-ice observations.

The post is based in the Department of Earth Sciences and is closely linked to the sub-department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics. The post-holder will collaborate closely with other members of the TEA-COSI (The Environment of the Arctic: Climate, Ocean and Sea Ice) consortium project as well as with a range of international project partners.

The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), for a period of three years, and is available from 1st January 2012.
