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 (eisenman@ucsd.edu) with any questions. 
Applicants should email a curriculum vitae, contact information for three 
references, and a brief description of research interests to eisenman@ucsd.edu. 
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.
