  Job Title: Ocean Modeling Postdoc

  Overview: Los Alamos National Laboratory is a multidisciplinary
research institution engaged in science and engineering on behalf of
national security. The postdoc positions are within the Climate, Ocean
and Sea-Ice Modeling (COSIM) group which develops advanced ocean and ice
models for the study of climate and climate change.

  Detailed Description: The COSIM group seeks two postdocs to contribute
to the development of a next-generation global ocean model, MPAS-Ocean.
MPAS-Ocean is a multiscale ocean model intended for the study of ocean
processes ranging from submesoscale to global scales of motion. Many
research opportunities exist within the MPAS-Ocean activity for the
development, evaluation and application of this novel approach to global
ocean modeling.

  Of particular interest are the following: development and evaluation
of a scale-adaptive parameterization for mesoscale ocean eddies,
development and evaluation of the generalized vertical coordinate
currently used in MPAS-Ocean, development of high-order transport
schemes, and evaluation of MPAS-Ocean within a coupled climate system model.

  Minimum Job Requirements: Experience and knowledge related to the
design, construction and evaluation of computational models. Software
skills including expertise in high-performance computing languages (e.g.
Fortran, C, C++) and knowledge of a scripting framework (e.g. Python,
MATLAB, NCL). A solid educational foundation in the following areas:
numerical methods, fluid dynamics and applied math.

  Desired Skills: The successful candidate will have demonstrated
scientific excellence as evidenced by submission and publication of
authored publications in refereed journals.

  Education: A Ph.D. in physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences,
computational physics, applied math or closely related field.

  To Apply: Send a curriculum vitae, digitized copies of transcripts,
names of three references, a cover letter detailing qualifications and
research interests, and a 1-2 page research proposal to
<ringler@lanl.gov>. Please include “Ocean Modeling Postdoc” in the
subject line. Applications will be reviewed as received with the intent
of filling the positions before July 15, 2013.

  Details: Full job description and requirements for employment can be
found at <http://www.lanl.gov/careers/career-options/jobs/index.php>
(vacancy name: IRC16112). For postdoc salary guidelines, go to

  Equal Opportunity: Los Alamos National Laboratory is an equal
opportunity employer and supports a diverse and inclusive workforce.
