Research Position in Ocean Dynamics

The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, invites 
applications for a postdoctoral research associate or assistant research 
scientist. The successful candidate will join a team that is investigating 
sea-surface temperature and salinity dynamics using satellite data and coupled 
models. The research aims to diagnose, quantify, and understand the mechanisms 
controlling the propagation of ocean surface anomalies in these properties, 
among others. It will also develop metrics for ocean models and coupled climate 
models involved in prediction. Other opportunities in dynamical oceanography 
may also be available. Further information about relevant research may be found 

An ideal candidate will be a creative, independent thinker with a Ph.D. in 
dynamical or physical oceanography, but applicants in related fields will also 
be closely considered. Knowledge in one or more of the following areas is 
advantageous: ocean circulation and dynamics, ocean remote sensing, numerical 
ocean models, and coupled climate dynamics. The start date is negotiable, but 
completion of the Ph.D. is required. The appointment may extend up to three 
years. Appointees will receive a competitive salary and benefits and will be 
eligible to participate in Johns Hopkins University health plans. 

Applications should be submitted electronically through Interfolio at by 15 February 2016 to receive full 
consideration. They should include a cover letter, your curriculum vitae plus 
the names and email addresses of three or more academic referees.

Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunities/affirmative action employer. 
Minorities and women are particularly encouraged to apply.
