[Met-jobs] Postdoc in ocean process modeling and theory at Stanford

From Leif Thomas <>
Date Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:40:52 -0700


Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in ocean process modeling and theory to work with Prof. Leif Thomas in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. The successful candidate(s) will pursue research in the dynamics of submesoscale processes and inertia-gravity wave-mean flow interactions at ocean fronts and their impact on the larger-scale circulation. The research will involve a combination of theory, numerical modeling, and analysis of submesoscale-resolving observations from recent field campaigns. A strong background in geophysical fluid dynamics with application to the ocean or atmosphere is required. Knowledge in numerical modeling is advantageous.

Evaluation of applications will begin immediately (August 2015) and will continue until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable, but completion of the PhD is required. The initial appointment is for one year and renewable for one additional year, subject to satisfactory performance. Applications should be sent by email to and include a CV, brief statement of research interests, experience, and future career plans, and the names and contact information of three or more references.
