Postdoctoral positions in sea ice and climate dynamics at Scripps Institution of Oceanography One or more postdoctoral positions in sea ice and climate dynamics are available at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California at San Diego. Applications are invited from candidates with a recent or expected Ph.D. in atmospheric dynamics, physical oceanography, climate science, applied mathematics, or a related field. Strong mathematical skills and experience with climate models is desirable. Successful applicants will be involved in research projects related to the observed expansion of the Southern Ocean sea ice cover during recent decades, the possibility of bifurcations during the evolution of the sea ice cover at either pole, methods to reduce the uncertainty in projections of Arctic sea ice retreat during the coming century, etc. The research will make use of mathematical and physical analyses of idealized models of the atmosphere-ocean-sea ice system and more comprehensive climate models, as well as drawing on observations. See http://eisenman.ucsd.edu for further details about the group, which also conducts research in paleoclimate and large-scale atmosphere/ocean circulations. The duration of the position is expected to be two years, contingent on progress during the first year and availability of funds. Interested candidates are welcome to contact Ian Eisenman (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. Applicants should email a curriculum vitae, contact information for three references, and a brief description of research interests to email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled. UCSD is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer with a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity.
