Department of Oceanography
University of Cape Town, South Africa
Reference number: E16113                Closing date: 26 August 2016

The University of Cape Town has a strong international reputation in
ocean and climate research and teaching. Within the Department of
Oceanography, particular areas of interest include the Agulhas and
Benguela Current systems, the tropical western Indian Ocean, the
Southern Ocean, climate change and variability, marine biogeochemistry,
severe weather and mesoscale meteorology, and modelling.   The
Department seeks to appoint a lecturer with proven expertise in
ocean-atmosphere interactions.  An interest in coupling observations
with modelling and applications of atmospheric or marine chemistry to
climate would be advantageous, since both would complement and extend
existing strengths within the Department.

The Oceanography Department has well developed computing facilities, a
marine biogeochemistry laboratory, and access to ship time for research
cruises in the South Atlantic, South Indian and Southern Oceans.

A Ph.D. in Oceanography, Atmospheric Science, or related field is
required together with evidence of publication in high quality research
journals. The incumbent will be expected to contribute strongly to
teaching undergraduate and Honours level courses and to develop her/his
own research programme with appropriate training and supervision of
postgraduate students. Experience in lecturing and/or tutoring
undergraduate students is desirable, as is evidence of obtaining funds
to support independent research.

Postdoctoral experience would be highly advantageous.

The annual remuneration package for 2016, including benefits,
is R558 915.
