DESCRIPTION

The Earth Research Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara (https://www.eri.ucsb.edu/), is seeking a postdoctoral scientist to contribute to a DOE-funded project focusing on understanding the mechanisms for tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal variability in present and future climates.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to define their own original sub-project aligned with the project goals, in collaboration with investigators at UC Santa Barbara, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The candidate will also have primary responsibility for generating, and the first opportunity to analyze, a new ‘Large Ensemble’ of future climate projections with the new DOE Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM). This ensemble will be released to the public upon completion of the project and form a vital new community resource. The position will be located at the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara, but will involve collaborative visits to LANL to facilitate work with E3SM, as well as in-person and remote interactions with the other team leads.

Post Doctoral Research Associate – SAMS

Oban, Scotland
Fixed term appointment for 3 years
£27,285-£30,688 per annum

One pre-eminent scientific challenge of the 21st Century is to understand the drivers of Earth’s climate. The North Atlantic subpolar ocean is closely coupled to Arctic, European and tropical regions through the atmosphere, and is strongly linked to decadal climate variability.

We seek a Post Doctoral Research Associate to help further develop SAMS expertise in basin scale ocean observation and analysis for climate, with aspirations to become a future leader in the field by contributing to our high-profile international research programmes. The post holder will join an observationally focused team (moorings and gliders) researching the topic of ocean salinity and the hydrological cycle, funded by the £25M UKRI CLASS programme. These observational activities feed directly into the scientific objectives of two EU H2020 programmes: Blue Action (focused on lower latitude drivers of Arctic weather and climate); and ATLAS (understanding physical controls on Atlantic cold water coral ecosystems).

As part of the Physical Oceanography team at SAMS working on the North Atlantic and sub-Arctic oceans you will be well supported within a structured international research environment, and yet with scope to develop your own ideas. 

The main duties are:

  1. Contribute to the preparation, planning and execution of research cruises and glider programme.
  2. Contribute to the delivery of scientific programme objectives.
  3. Lead and publish high quality peer-reviewed research.
  4. Form and maintain national and international relationships and collaborations.
  5. Travel to national and international meetings to present research findings.

 For general enquiries about the position please contact:

Prof. Stuart Cunningham at Stuart.Cunningham@sams.ac.uk or Prof Mark Inall on Mark.Inall@sams.ac.uk

Postdoctoral position – Laboratoire d’Océanographie Physique et Spatiale (LOPS)

A full-time postdoctoral position in atmospheric physics is available at Laboratoire d’Océanographie Physique et Spatiale (LOPS) in Plouzané – Brest, France, to work on the development of parametrization of turbulent fluxes at the air-sea interface in atmospheric numerical models in conditions of strong to cyclonic winds.

Supervisors: Jean-Luc Redelsperger (jlredels@ifremer.fr) and Marie-Noelle Bouin (marie-noelle.bouin@meteo.fr)

The required qualifications include:
1) A Ph. D. in atmospheric sciences or fluid mechanics obtained before the starting date of the contract.
2) An expertise in representing turbulent surface fluxes, in physics of the turbulence, or in atmospheric boundary-layer processes.
3) An expertise in Fortran and Linux, and an experience in high computing.

Postdoctoral Fellowship, Hydrodynamic/Wave Modeling – Cooperative Institute of Great Lakes Research

Job Summary

The Cooperative Institute of Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to lead research related to the development, testing, and deployment of hydrodynamic and wave models of the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River basin to support development of a real-time hydrodynamics and flood forecast modeling system. Objectives of the project include calibration and verification of an FVCOM-based hydrodynamic lake model and wind-wave model based on the WAVEWATCH III model. Lake model forcings are based on the output of operational atmospheric High-Resolution Rapid Refresh model (HRRR) and of Weather Research and Forecasting-Hydrologic distributed model (WRF-Hydro).  The fellow will be given the intellectual freedom to pursue additional ideas of their own that contribute to the broader goals of hydrodynamic modeling in Lake Champlain and the Great Lakes basins.

Research Fellow, Characterising and predicting compound flooding in the past, present and future for Viet Nam

Research Fellow – Characterising and predicting compound flooding in the past, present and future for Viet Nam

Physical Oceanography

Location:  National Oceanography Centre Southampton
Salary:   £30,395 per annum
Full Time – Fixed Term until 31/12/2021
Closing Date:  Wednesday 06 March 2019
Interview Date:   To be confirmed
Reference:  1107219HN

This post is being advertised as part of the CompFlood (Characterising and predicting compound flooding in the past, present and future for Viet Nam) project. Viet Nam is a rapidly developing country and, with 70% of its population living in coastal areas, it is highly exposed to flooding from coastal, fluvial and surface runoff sources. Densely populated communities in low-lying regions of the Mekong delta are especially vulnerable to flooding. This project brings together UK and Vietnamese expertise to map and characterise present and predict future flood risk, from coastal, fluvial, and surface sources and, uniquely, to assess the risk of compound (i.e. them in combination) flooding across the Mekong delta.  Read more ›
