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 email@example.com. 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 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 disabilities are encouraged.
