Physical oceanography postdoctoral opportunity

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in
association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL),
seeks a postdoctoral or more senior scientist to develop
parameterizations of internal wave-driven mixing, and implement and
evaluate the parameterizations in global climate models. This position
is a component of the ongoing NSF and NOAA-funded Climate Process Team,
consisting of 15+ PIs from leading US institutions, with combined
expertise in modeling, observational analysis and theoretical work. The
ultimate goal of the project is to better parameterize internal-wave
driven mixing in ocean climate models.

The appointment is initially for one year, beginning in early 2014, with
the possibility of renewal for a second year depending on satisfactory
performance. The successful applicant will be encouraged to visit with
collaborators at other participating institutions and attendance at
frequent workshops will offer additional opportunities for the postdoc
to network with scientists throughout the country. More details about
the climate process team are available at
http://www-pord.ucsd.edu/~jen/cpt/ .

The successful applicant will have a PhD in physical oceanography or in
related fields such as computer science, applied mathematics, fluid
dynamics, or atmospheric science, preferably with prior experience in
large-scale ocean modeling or numerical ocean process studies.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae including a list of
publications and presentations, contact information for three
references, and a cover letter online to http://jobs.princeton.edu,
Requisition # 1300804. Princeton University is an equal opportunity
employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action
regulations. For additional information, contact Dr. Sonya Legg
(slegg@princeton.edu). Review of applications will begin as they are
received. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
