The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program of Princeton University, in 
association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a 
postdoctoral or more senior researcher to work in the area of mesoscale eddy 

This work is a component of a high profile Climate Process Team (CPT) on Ocean 
Transport and Eddy Energy involving multiple institutions including New York 
University (NYU), Woods Hole Oceanographic Inst., University of Colorado, 
Boulder, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, among others. The role 
of the Princeton team is to i) implement existing parameterizations in a 
numerical ocean circulation model (MOM6), ii) evaluate parameterizations in 
both an idealized ocean and later a global climate model, iii) help develop, 
implement, and assess, new parameterizations created at the partner 
institutions. The work will be very collaborative and involve some travel for 
project workshops, frequent virtual meetings, and regular travel between 
Princeton and NYU to coordinate with the lead PI, Laure Zanna, and her team. 
Information about the broader project and related positions can be found at;;sdata=GJZRk3fkGxLwcE9%2BkgCvutSxi3WBYuvpE4kRy9Ty%2B6s%3D&amp;reserved=0.

The ideal candidate has a strong background in one or more areas among 
dynamical oceanography, dynamical meteorology, applied mathematics, or 
numerical methods. Experience with scientific software development will be 
advantageous in this research.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in either applied oceanography, meteorology, 
mathematics, physics, or a related field. Initial appointment is for one year 
with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and 
available funding.

Complete applications, including a CV with a list of publications, a statement 
of research interests (no more than 2 pages including references), and contact 
information of 3 references should be submitted by February 15, 2021, 11:59 
p.m. EST for full consideration. Princeton is interested in candidates who, 
through their research, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the 
academic community. Applicants should apply online to;;sdata=64gTXRJQ5G5RrTUblXC1zZwYINmGtfoBrP8po1hViOs%3D&amp;reserved=0.
