[Met-jobs] University of Hawaii: Postdoc in Ocean Ecosystems Modeling

From Brian Powell <>
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2018 10:30:36 -1000


University of Hawai'i, School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) 
and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS): Ocean and Ecosystem 

SOEST at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa seeks a Postdoctoral Scholar to 
collaborate in a new and significant inter-disciplinary project to observe and 
predict the ocean ecosystem and physical state of the U.S. Pacific Islands, 
including Hawai'i, Guam, Samoa, and others. The project will implement an 
ecosystem model of the Main Hawaiian Islands including the physics, 
geochemistry, and biology (base food-web) to predict the processes around the 
Main Hawaiian Islands. The results will provide new insight into connections 
between the reef and oceanic scales in island archipelagos. PacIOOS currently 
makes daily predictions of the physical ocean state of islands around the 
Pacific. The successful candidate will join a dynamic team working on similar 
research and expand these predictions to include ecosystems. Information about 
the program can be found at

The successful candidate will be responsible for implementation of the 
ecosystem simulation in Hawai'i, maintaining the existing operational analysis 
and prediction models, and help to share the results in the local community. It 
is expected that the successful candidate will publish scientific articles, 
collaborate with PacIOOS partners, and contribute to and/or write new funding 
proposals, etc.

Minimum Qualifications include: Ph.D. or equivalent in oceanography (or related 
field), numerical modeling, ecosystems, the ability to work well independently 
as part of a team, and strong communication skills both verbal and written. 
Preferred candidates will have experience with numerical modeling (physical 
and/or biological) with strong mathematical and computational skills. 
Candidates should be motivated to drive new developments in coupled systems 
within numerical modeling.

The appointment will be reviewed annually and renewed based upon performance 
and funding. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Review 
of applications will begin immediately, and will proceed until the position is 
filled. Electronic applications containing (1) curriculum vitae; (2) one-page 
statement of research interests; (3) one published academic article most 
indicative of your work; (4) contact information for three references; should 
be sent to Email verification will be sent upon receipt of 
your application, please inquire if receipt is not received. For more 
information, please contact Dr. Brian Powell (; 808-956-6724).

employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment 
without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, veteran
