Postdoctoral researcher – University of Connecticut

The coastal biogeochemical dynamics Lab at the University of Connecticut invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in oxygen dynamics modelling to participate in an NSF-funded project about regional modeling of hypoxia in the Southern Benguela Upwelling System. This position will provide an opportunity to advance the understanding of the complex oxygen and nutrient dynamics through model-driven hypothesis testing. The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of ocean nutrient and oxygen biogeochemistry, expertise in computational methods, and model evaluation. Preference will be given to candidates with experience with Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS).  The position will be located at the regional campus at Avery Point working predominately with the laboratories of Samantha Siedlecki and Julie Granger, with opportunities to travel to South Africa to work with colleagues there.

Professor in Physics – Stonehill College

Founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1948, Stonehill is a private Catholic college located just 22 miles from downtown Boston on a beautiful 384-acre campus in Easton, Massachusetts. With a student to faculty ratio of 13:1, the College engages its 2,400+ students in 80+ rigorous academic programs in the liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional fields.

Faithful to the Holy Cross tradition in education, Stonehill College is committed to developing the moral, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social competencies of its students and seeks to build and sustain a campus community that embraces diversity and inclusion in its teaching, learning, living, and working. Stonehill values a diversity of persons, opinions, and cultural and religious perspectives.  In fulfillment of its motto, Lux et Spes (“Light and Hope”), the College cultivates in its students the competence to think, act, and lead with courage towards creating a more just and compassionate world.

The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Stonehill College invites applicants for a tenure track assistant professor position, starting in the Fall of 2020.

We are interested in applicants with background in astrophysics, astronomy, cosmology, geophysics or, more generally, geosciences. We might also consider a particle physicist or a plasma physicist with ongoing long-term involvement in outside projects which may be potentially open to our students. Our strong preference is for applicants with an experimental and/or observational background, plus a good knowledge of computational methods and, ideally, computer simulations of physical systems.

The applicant will join a department of three full-time tenured and tenure track faculty. We have a wide range of disciplinary expertise, ranging from astrophysics, to geophysics, quantum field theory, theoretical and experimental optics and engineering photonics. We are a department of individualists, who value independence and self-reliance, but also informal social interaction, teamwork and friendship. Each one of us has contributed to the growth of the department, by introducing new programs, new courses and new ways of teaching. We are looking for an energetic person who can bring their contribution to the further academic growth of our department, a person of ideas who is able to work with others for common goals.

The applicant should have a very strong interest in teaching, a record of published research and a clear ongoing program of research. Typically, the teaching load in our department is 9-11 teaching credits per semester; lecture-only courses count for 3 credits and courses which include a lab component count for 5 credits.  The applicant will also be committed to involving students in some of their research, and helping them apply to good internships, including our own S.U.R.E. Program. We have an astronomical observatory, and the basic infrastructure needed to build a solar observatory. The applicant will contribute to the use and further development of these facilities.

Please apply electronically, including a cover letter, a teaching and a research statement, a resume and three references on our jobsite:

Postdoc positions – The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Two postdoc positions are available under the supervision of Dr. Yan Wang at the Department of Ocean Science, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

1). A postdoc position in lateral tracer exchange
The postdoc researcher will work on a project to characterize the lateral tracer exchange between the coastal and open ocean environments, with an emphasis on the role of mesoscale isopycnal stirring across continental margins. The research involves working with high-resolution ocean models and utilizing both Eulerian/Lagrangian techniques to track suspensions and biogeochemical tracers.

2). A postdoc position in flow/topography interactions
The postdoc researcher will work on a project to characterize the flow/topography interactions induced by seamounts. Attention will be paid to the role of baroclinic turbulence and topographically trapped waves in the vorticity/energy budgets and material transport across isolated seamounts. The research involves working with high-resolution ocean models and in situ observational datasets.

Both positions are initially for one full year. An extension to two or more years in duration is anticipated, subject to satisfactory progress with the projects. To apply, please send a CV (with full publication list) and names of three referees to Dr. Yan Wang directly via Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

A PhD in Oceanography or a related discipline is required. Prior experience in high-performance computing is desirable but not demanded. The applicants are encouraged to get in contact for more information. ​

Postdoctoral Position in High-Latitude Climate Dynamics – University of Victoria 

Postdoctoral Position in High-Latitude Climate Dynamics at the University of Victoria

We are seeking an engaged, enthusiastic individual for a postdoctoral research position investigating the dynamics of high-latitude climates. The researcher will explore the workings of Arctic and Antarctic climate broadly, and may consider any (or all, time permitting) of the following scientific directions in high-latitude climate change: (1) the impact of dynamic atmospheric processes during the shoulder seasons (fall and spring) on the onset of sea ice growth and melt; (2) the role of atmosphere-ocean coupled dynamic processes in amplifying polar climate change in winter; and (3) the impact of atmospheric moisture transport, and cloud feedback processes, in polar climate change through the seasons. Other research directions on the dynamics of polar climate change are also possible.
