The Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS) is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate (2-year term, Ph.D. in physical oceanography or a related field) to join the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) for an exciting opportunity to support a hurricane intensity forecast improvements project, with a focus on Atlantic upper ocean observations and ocean model data assimilation. The project is coordinated by the NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), the National Ocean Service (NOS) and the NWS. This is a highly-collaborative position involving multiple federal and academic partners, with great networking opportunities.
