Postdoctoral Scholar – Scripps

Postdoctoral Scholar in Physical Oceanography at Scripps Institution of Oceangraphy, University of California San Diego

A postdoctoral scholar position is available to work with Paola Cessi on the global oceanic circulation, with special emphasis on exchanges between large-scale basins, and in particular between the Indo-Pacific and the Atlantic. The approach is to use a range of models (conceptual box models, primitive-equations computations in simplified geometries) and data sets such as ECCO version 4, to understand the mass, temperature and salinity interbasin exchanges involved in the global overturning circulation.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Building a coupled ice-surge-wave forecast modeling system for Western Alaska – CIGLR

Postdoctoral Fellowship
Building a coupled ice-surge-wave forecast modeling system for Western Alaska

Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research
School for Environment and Sustainability
University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Job Summary

A postdoctoral fellowship is available for a highly qualified individual to work on a NOAA-funded grant that will develop storm surge forecasts for western Alaska. Regional forecasters and the communities they serve in this region are limited in their ability to assess threats from storm events, and have no basis to determine risk, the potential impacts of storms, or to evaluate safe evacuation routes and locations. The region’s complex geography, patterns of atmospheric and ocean circulation, and extensive continental shelf and coastal floodplain leaves many western Alaskan communities vulnerable to flooding events.

Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Near Inertial Wave- Mesoscale eddy- Submesoscale Current Interactions – UCLA

Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on problems of oceanic circulation dynamics using the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS) and the spectral Large Eddy Simulator Flow_Solve. The researcher would join a highly experienced group, run by Professor James C. McWilliams, with expertise in computational methods, realistic and idealized simulation of complex flows, and dynamical processes. The focus of the research will be on the interactions between near inertial waves (NIW), mesoscale eddies, and submesoscale fronts and filaments (‘NIW-eddy-front interactions’). Problems of interest include quantifying the degree to which NIW-eddy-front interactions in the mixed-layer, thermocline, and the abyss modify the oceanic Kinetic and Available Potential energy pathways; and determining whether the scattering and dispersion of NIWs by eddies and fronts is crucial to obtaining the commonly observed Garrett- Munk spectrum. The work is partly motivated and supported by a series of field experiments in the North-Atlantic subpolar gyre, south of Iceland. Read more ›
