Postdoctoral Research Associate, Southern Ocean climate dynamics – University of Arizona

The University of Arizona, Princeton University, and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) are seeking applicants for a post-doctoral research scientist to analyze simulations of the Southern Ocean from GFDL’s CM4 and OM4 using observational constraints. The position is with the University of Arizona and funded through an NSF grant focused on the Southern Ocean (SOCCOM, Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling). The post-doc will be located in Princeton and associated with the Ocean and Cryosphere Division at GFDL. The successful applicant will spend the majority of their time at GFDL in Princeton, New Jersey with several trips to the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ annually.

Applicants should have a PhD in oceanography, atmospheric science or related science. Candidates should possess (a) a good understanding of climate variability and change and associated ocean dynamics with a focus on the complex processes active in the Southern Ocean, and (b) the ability to analyze global climate simulations by making use of climate and oceanographic datasets (c) experience with climate models. Applicants should send a CV, letter of research interest, and list of references to Joellen Russell <>, Stephen Griffies <>, and Michael Winton <>.

Formal applications must be submitted to:, Position # P20834.

The position will be filled when a suitable candidate is found.
