One Research Scientist and Three Postdoc Positions Open in Ocean Data Assimilation, Forecasting and Visualization at KAUST
One research scientist and three postdoc positions are open at KAUST as part of a new joint initiative between KAUST, MIT, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Plymouth Marine Laboratory aiming at developing advanced stochastic/ensemble regional and coastal data assimilation, short and seasonal forecasting, transport, and visualization capabilities for the Red Sea. The successful candidates will join an already established multidisciplinary group at KAUST working on ocean and atmospheric modeling, data assimilation and uncertainty quantification led by Professors Ibrahim Hoteit and Omar Knio. Strong interpersonal qualities from the candidates will be appreciated as he/she will be working in a highly collaborative environment and will be expected to spend a part of their time at the collaborating institutions.
