The Institut des Géosciences de l’Environnement (IGE, Grenoble) will host a 18-month postdoctoral appointment in Physical Oceanography beginning in early 2019, with an optional 18-month renewal.
The objective of the research will be the study of surface submesoscale phenomenaand the design of submesoscale closuresfor eddy-resolving numerical ocean models (with resolution ~1/12°). The proposed research will use the 1/60° North Atlantic simulations recently performed at IGE (see links below) in order to analyse how submesoscale turbulence affects kinetic energy budgets, tracer transport and vertical exchanges within and across the ocean surface boundary layer. The design of submesoscale closures will involve dynamical analysis. We also have interests in data-driven approaches based on Machine Learning. Read more ›
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon State University (OSU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor with a focus on remote sensing of water. This position can be structured as a traditional 9-month, 1.0 FTE (full time equivalent) faculty position, or alternatively as a 12-month position at 0.75 FTE. In either case, there is an expectation that the successful candidate will secure funding to augment the university-provided salary.
We seek a colleague who will develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program in the remote sensing of water, including snow and ice. The successful applicant is expected to use novel remote sensing approaches to observe and model the spatial and temporal patterns of water stocks and surface and subsurface fluxes of water to/from the oceans, vegetation, soil, snow and ice, aquifers, surface water bodies and watersheds across all scales in the landscape. Spatial and temporal distributions and fluxes of water are of increasing relevance for understanding climate dynamics and water scarcity for ecosystems and humans. The successful applicant will help lead major innovative research directions in CEOAS linking atmosphere, vegetation, hydrosphere, and human systems. We seek an outstanding scholar to develop cutting-edge strategies to combine remote sensing technologies with direct measurements, existing or new. This could involve using spatial and temporal data on water storage to model and infer fluxes of moisture to and from the atmosphere, to understand vegetation water stress, human withdrawals of water from surface and subsurface reservoirs, to anticipate emergent drought conditions, and/or to understand or predict other natural hazards or impacts on humans. The successful applicant will devise new applications and analyses for linking traditional remotely-sensed imagery with novel technologies to clarify interactions between water, climate, terrestrial landscapes, and human systems.

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon State University (OSU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor with a focus on hydrogeology. This position can be structured as a traditional 9-month, 1.0 FTE (full time equivalent) faculty position, or alternatively as a 12-month position at 0.75 FTE. In either case, there is an expectation that the successful candidate will secure funding to augment the university-provided salary.
We seek a colleague who will develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program in the field of hydrogeology. The successful applicant is expected to explore the subsurface and/or surface distribution and movement of water in rock and soil to clarify interactions between water, climate, terrestrial and/or marine landscapes, and human systems. We seek an outstanding scholar with experience in fundamental Earth Science questions across a range of temporal and spatial scales, such as linkages between the hydrologic cycle, erosion and weathering; terrestrial water supply resilience in a changing environment; or storage, transport, or remediation of environmental contaminants. These issues are critical to existing research programs and an effective curriculum within CEOAS and across OSU. This position will have the opportunity to develop collaborations within CEOAS and across OSU, including in Earth surface processes, environmental geochemistry, fluid-mineral reactions, and/or paleoclimate, and have access to world class existing campus geochemical laboratories, field sites, and imaging facilities.

Applicants are sought in all supported areas, with particular opportunities in robotics, sensors, coastal remote sensing, and surf zone processes. Read more ›
The Polar and Paleoclimate modeling group in the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate for work on polar and paleo ocean dynamics. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will perform climate model analysis and experiments, addressing exciting scientific questions related to the dynamics of water mass changes and Arctic freshwater pathways, for both present, future, and past climates. An overarching theme of the work of the Postdoctoral Research Associate will be the comparison of climate model simulations with observations and proxy data, using novel tracers to improve the understanding of oceanic processes important for global climate.

Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is filling the position of
IPCCTechnical Support Unit (IPCC WGI)
Located at the University of Paris-Saclay (Saint-Aubin, France)
The Working Group I (WGI) Technical Support Unit (TSU)of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is recruiting a Science Officer for the WGI contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (AR6):the assessment of the physical science basis of climate change.
The Science Officer will be part of the TSU Science Team, advising on the assessment and consistent treatment of climate science topics within the report and in relation to the wider AR6 assessment. Your primary area of responsibility is the development of long-term curation of open source software for figures and data used within the WGIAR6. Read more ›
The Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut (UConn) invites applications for a 9-month, tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in the area of physical oceanography. We seek candidates with physical oceanographic expertise that can include turbulence, waves, air-sea interaction, and physical ocean dynamics. Preference will be given to those who apply observations to studying processes controlling mass, momentum, and energy transfer across boundaries (atmosphere and benthic), across density fronts, and throughout the ocean interior. Competitive candidates should have experience in the development and use of modern measurement technologies, data analysis, and in the advancement of theory. Read more ›
The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate or assistant research scientist. The successful candidate will join a team designing, computing, disseminating, and analyzing cutting edge global ocean circulation model solutions.
The research team aims to advance knowledge of the role of small-scale processes on the large-scale, low frequency general circulation of the ocean, and in high Reynolds number rotating stratified fluids in general. It will build parameterizations of the effects of these small-scale processes for use in coarser-scale models, such as coupled climate models, and automatic algorithms to build these parameterizations. And it will design and implement a software framework for handling petabyte-scale datasets that will grow toward exabyte-scale data analysis by non-specialist, casual users.
