POSTDOC OPENING, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

The department of Physical Oceanography at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution 
is seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator to join their team. This is a full-time 
position and is eligible for benefits. The initial appointment will be for one 
year with the possibility of an extension for an additional year based on 
satisfactory performance.

Research will involve studying physical-biological interactions using 
three-dimensional modeling of ocean dynamics and analysis of in situ data from 
autonomous platforms. The project will further understanding of the 
relationship between ocean physics and the biological pump. The postdoctoral 
investigator will study oceanic submesoscale processes and their implications 
for export of particulate organic matter as part of a NASA funded collaboration 
between Drs. A. Mahadevan (WHOI), D. Nicholson (WHOI), M. Omand (U.Rhode 
Island), A. Thompson (Caltech) and A. Martin (NOC Southampton). The postdoc 
will play a key role in the design and execution of research and the 
interpretation of scientific results, which will contribute to the EXPORTS 

The institution has a top-rated postdoctoral program 
(<>) that supports a 
dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance 
programs. While the primary focus of the work will be in research, the 
postdoctoral investigator will have an opportunity to participate in 
educational and outreach activities associated with the project.

• PhD
• Experience with numerical modeling, Lagrangian modeling, analysis of in situ 
oceanographic data and model output, and visualization is desirable.
• Strong computer and programming skills for numerical ocean modeling, data 
analysis and visualization. Demonstrated ability to communicate effectively and 
work  collaboratively.
