The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute (GFDI) at Florida State University is seeking a postdoctoral scientist. This position will involve a few existing projects, all fundamentally related to fluid dynamics and opportunities to develop in new directions. Applicants should have experience with laboratory methods and familiarity with flow-visualization techniques. Experience with numerical modeling would also be desirable, though not required. The position requires teaching a one-semester course on laboratory demonstrations and techniques for geophysical flows. In addition, part of the teaching and research effort will be directed towards a new program on wildland fire dynamics.
GFDI is an interdisciplinary institute with faculty in Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, and Scientific Computing among others. The postdoctoral scientist will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty across a range of disciplines. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching and research, and contact information for three references to Vijaya Challa <Vijaya@fsu.edu>. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2017, and the search will remain active until the position is filled. Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply. Please see gfdi.fsu.edu for additional information about the Institute.
