Job title: Physical Oceanography Post Doctoral Research Fellow
Fixed term/ permanent: 3-year fixed term permanent

Closing date: March 21st, 2014, 4 pm.

Job Description:
A highly numerate and computer literate physical oceanographer with sea-going 
experience is required to work on the NERC-funded project, SMILES (Surface 
Mixed Layer Evolution at Submesoscales). This 3 year project (July 1st 2014 
start date) aims to identify the role played by submesoscales within the 
oceanic surface mixed layer and quantify the extent to which they modify the 
properties of Subantarctic Mode Water in the Southern Ocean. As part of this 
multi-institutional (Plymouth University, University of Cambridge, British 
Antarctic Survey, Plymouth Marine Laboratory) collaborative effort that 
addresses the research problem from both an observational and numerical 
modelling perspective, the successful candidate will be primarily responsible 
for collecting, analysing and interpreting the data acquired during a research 
cruise to the Scotia Sea in March 2015. This one month cruise will employ a 
variety of instrumentation including towed CTDs, vessel mounted ADCP, 
instrumented drogued drifters and microstructure profilers to measure 
submesoscales throughout an area that encompasses the subantarctic front. They 
will assist in the preparation for the cruise and present the results in the 
scientific literature and at appropriate national and international meetings. 
They will be located within the School of Marine Science and Engineering, 
Faculty of Science and Technology.
