[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in high resolution coupled ocean-atmosphere modeling

From Brian Arbic <arbic@umich.edu>
To met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Tue, 6 May 2014 15:27:38 -0400

A postdoctoral research fellow is sought for a collaborative project between
the University of Michigan and NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics 
Laboratory (GFDL).  The successful applicant will examine the roles of
forcing versus intrinsic dynamics in the low-frequency variability 
of high-resolution coupled ocean-atmosphere simulations run at GFDL.  The
project will utilize new tools developed in the frequency spectra domain,
along with other tools, to address these questions.   The project represents 
an opportunity for an early-career scientist to analyze cutting edge high 
resolution models run on the nation's largest supercomputers.

National Science Foundation funding is available for up to three years
of support, depending on the performance of the successful applicant.  
The successful applicant will join an ocean modeling research group, currently
consisting of one postdoctoral research fellow, five graduate students, and three 
undergraduate students, at the University of Michigan.  Entrainment of 
undergraduates into postdoctoral research is strongly encouraged and will
provide invaluable mentoring experience for positions sought afterwards.
The successful applicant will be expected to visit with GFDL collaborator 
Dr. Stephen Griffies as needed to advance the project.  

The successful applicant will have a PhD in physical oceanography or 
atmospheric science, or a related field such as computer science, applied 
mathematics, physics, or fluid dynamics.  Prior numerical modeling experience 
is highly desirable.  Applicants should send a statement of interest, curriculum 
vitae including a list of publications and presentations, and contact information 
for three references to Professor Brian Arbic (arbic@umich.edu).  Inquiries to 
this email address are also welcomed.  Applications will be considered until 
the position is filled, but applications submitted before July 7, 2014 will be 
given full consideration.  The University of Michigan offers competitive salary 
and benefits packages for postdoctoral research fellows.  The University of Michigan 
is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
