[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral position in ocean modeling

From Zouhair Lachkar <>
Date Sun, 5 Jun 2016 10:09:29 +0400

Dear colleagues,
I would be grateful if you could bring this opportunity to the attention of potentially interested candidates.  

Many thanks!


A postdoctoral research position supervised by Shafer Smith, Zouhair Lachkar and
Marina Levy is available at the Center for Prototype Climate Modeling, an
interdisciplinary research unit at New York University Abu Dhabi (More information can be found on our website: The successful candidate will join a small team of scientists engaged in a broad effort to understand and model the circulation and biogeochemical dynamics of the Indian Ocean. The research project will involve both high-resolution regional modeling
of the Bay of Bengal and idealized process modeling, with a focus on
submesoscale-driven tracer transport. The overarching goal is to improve
parameterizations of eddy fluxes of biogeochemical tracers in coarse resolution
general circulation models. A sufficiently creative, scientifically mature candidate
will have broad latitude over the direction of research.

We encourage applications from researchers with PhDs in geophysical fluid
dynamics, applied mathematics or theoretical physical oceanography, and
especially from those with experience in high-resolution regional ocean modeling
and eddy parameterization. Appointments are offered for two-year periods,
contingent upon positive annual reviews; extensions for longer periods are possible
in exceptional cases. The annual salary is very competitive, with substantial
benefits including allowances for housing, transportation, and annual home visits,
in addition to full health insurance and retirement contributions. The position is
based in Abu Dhabi, but researchers may spend a few months per year at the
Courant Institute in New York City.

Applicants should send a CV, a statement of research interests and the names of
three professional references via email to our Center Manager, Asma Kamal
( The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is
