Postdoctoral position available: Ocean and Climate Dynamics

Dr. Henri Drake in the Department of Earth System Science at the University of California, Irvine is seeking a motivated postdoctoral scholar to investigate the energetic pathways of tidally-driven internal waves from generation to dissipation, contributing to the evaluation and improvement of ocean mixing parameterizations for Earth System Models. Candidates will be expected to configure and run idealized Large Eddy Simulations on a High-Performance Computing cluster with the Oceananigans.jl model; analyze the simulated energy budgets and turbulence characteristics; compare their results to direct numerical simulations, in-situ observations, and theoretical parameterizations; communicate their results through peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, and open-source code development; and mentor students in the group.

Position perks:

This is a two-year position that is renewable for up to four years, pending good progress and funding. The start date is flexible, ideally sometime in the Fall of 2023. The salary will range from 60,000 to 78,000 USD per year, scaling with experience as detailed here, and includes generous benefits. The position allows for a hybrid work schedule, with up to 60% time working remotely.
