[Met-jobs] University of Hawaii - Physical Oceanographer, Postdoctoral Scientist

From Brian Powell <powellb@hawaii.edu>
To Met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:39:21 -0400

University of Hawaii, School of Ocean and Earth Science Technology (SOEST), 
Numerical Modeling of Physical Oceanography.

SOEST at the University of Hawai`i in Manoa seeks a Postdoctoral Scholar to 
collaborate in a significant ocean modeling project to understand how the 
interaction of large-scale ocean circulation with fine-scale topography in the 
western Pacific ocean affects predictability. This is a collaborative effort 
with Scripps and MIT to understand how the generated energies affect global 
model predictions. Using the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) and 
state-of-the-art adjoint-based four-dimensional variational data assimilation, 
observations from the field program will be combined with the model to 
understand how the dynamics of the regional-scale flows are altered. The 
successful candidate will join a dynamic team working on similar issues and 
research and will be responsible for performing model simulations, 4D-Var 
state-estimation, help to develop new techniques, and dynamical analysis of 
energy cascades. It is expected that the successful candidate will publish 
scientific articles and contribute to and/or write new funding proposals, etc.

Minimum Qualifications include: Ph.D. or equivalent in physical oceanography, 
ocean engineering, or related field, ability to work well independently as part 
of a team, and strong communication skills both verbal and written. Preferred 
candidates will have experience with ROMS, strong mathematical and 
computational skills with a background in physical oceanography. Candidates 
should be motivated to drive new developments in data assimilation within 
numerical modeling.

The appointment will be reviewed annually and renewed based upon performance 
and funding. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Review 
of applications will begin immediately, and will proceed until the position is 
filled. Electronic applications containing: (1) curriculum vitae; (2) one-page 
statement of research interests; (3) one published academic article most 
indicative of your work; (4) contact information for three references to 
powellb@hawaii.edu. Email verification will be sent upon receipt of your 
application, please inquire if receipt is not received. For more information, 
please contact Dr. Brian Powell <powellb@hawaii.edu>.

The University of Hawaii is an equal opportunity and affirmative action 
employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment 
without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, veteran 
status, or disability. Applications from women, minorities, and persons with
