Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Nonlinear Waves and Ocean Modelling
Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow position to work on the project “Stirring at the Walls – A dynamical boundary model for the ocean”. This work forms part of a joint NERC-NSF funded project between Professor Ted Johnson at University College London and Professor William Dewar of Florida State University on boundary models for the ocean. The project will investigate the hypothesis that there is a gap between the very high spatial and temporal resolution required in global ocean models to accurately resolve the flow near ocean boundaries and the lower resolution in both space and time required to resolve the motion of the ocean interior. The aim is to produce a dynamical boundary model that can exploit this gap to allow more accurate simulations at lower computational cost while simultaneously increasing our knowledge of boundary mixing processes.

The Institute of Marine Sciences of the National Research Council (CNR-ISMAR, Italy) offers one fellowship for conducting research activitiesat the Unit of Lerici (La Spezia, Italy), related to the Project “CARTHE-III” (http://carthe.org), funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GOMRI).
The focus of the fellowship is the“Development and application of Lagrangian analysis techniques aimed at studying (sub)mesoscale surface dynamics and implications for 3D passive transport”under the scientific responsibility of Dr. Annalisa Griffa.
The research fellow would join a highly experienced group in Lagrangian methods and will participate to the analysis of unique and interesting datasets that should result in a valuable set of publications. Collected datasets include massive drifter deployments in the Gulf of Mexico during two large field campaigns.
The position includes travels abroad for conferences and project meetings.
PhD is not strictly required, but it will be considered title of preference if related to the topic of the announcement.
The duration of the fellowship is one year (renewable).
deadline: May 30, 2019
Call announcement code: ISMAR-008-2019-SP
Please find in attachment the announcement in Italian and English version and further practical information in the
“Tips_application” file. You can also find the announcement at the following link: in English –> https://bandi.urp.cnr.it/doc-assegni/documentazione/8713_DOC_EN.pdf
Applications are sought for a 3-year postdoctoral position in ocean modeling and physical oceanography at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) as part of a new joint project between Prof. Ibrahim Hoteit at KAUST, Prof. Triantaphyllos Akylas at MIT, and Dr. Larry Pratt at Woods Hole Institution of Oceanography (WHOI). The project aims at advancing our understanding of the physics of two salient small-scale processes, namely hydraulics in the Strait of Bab-al-Mandeb (BAM) and internal waves in the southern Red Sea, and their impacts on the Red Sea general circulation. High-resolution non-hydrostatic configurations of the MITgcm will be implemented on the KAUST supercomputer to this end.
The successful candidate will join an already established multidisciplinary group at KAUST working on modeling, studying and predicting the ocean-atmosphere circulation in the Red Sea region. Extended visits to MIT and WHOI will be scheduled as needed. Qualified applicants should possess a Ph.D. in physical oceanography or any related field. Expertise in ocean modeling is a must. Applicants should be able to work in a collaborative and multidisciplinary environment with a minimal amount of supervision.
The initial appointment period is for two years with a competitive salary based on the candidate?s qualifications. Benefits include medical and dental insurances, moving expenses to KAUST, free international schools, family annual travel allowance to visit home country and annual payed vacation. To apply, please send curriculum vitae and a letter of interest with the names and contact information of at least two references to email@example.com.
