From "Roger Brugge" <>

Date Mon, 1 Dec 2014 19:09:53 +0000


The Physical Oceanography Department is searching for a Postdoctoral 
Investigator to join their team. This is a regular full-time position and is 
eligible for benefits. The initial appointment will be for one year with the 
possibility of extension to a second year.
The successful candidate will participate in an international, 
multi-disciplinary program to study the circulation and shelf-basin exchange of 
Atlantic water in the Eurasian Basin of the Atlantic Ocean and its impact on 
the regional ecosystem. The main goal of the physical oceanographic component 
is to obtain a quantitative description of the water mass composition, 
kinematics and dynamics of the boundary current over an annual cycle. A moored 
array was deployed across the current near 30E from 2012-13, and hydrographic 
surveys were carried out as well. The candidate will work with both types of 
data to answer a host of questions regarding the role of the current in the 
Arctic system, including the influence of atmospheric forcing. The candidate 
will be based at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution but will interact 
with scientists from the collaborating institutions.
Ph.D. is required with experience in observational physical oceanography (e.g. 
shipboard data, mooring data)
Physical duties for this position include but are not limited to a mostly 
sedentary environment with occasional bending, stooping, kneeling and 
crouching. Physical duties are subject to change.
