Physical oceanography postdoctoral opportunity

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in 
association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), 
seeks a postdoctoral or more senior scientist to develop 
parameterizations of internal wave-driven mixing, and implement and 
evaluate the parameterizations in global climate models. This position 
is a component of the ongoing NSF and NOAA-funded Climate Process Team, 
consisting of 15+ PIs from leading US institutions, with combined 
expertise in modeling, observational analysis and theoretical work. The 
ultimate goal of the project is to better parameterize internal-wave 
driven mixing in ocean climate models.

The appointment is initially for one year, beginning in early 2014, with 
the possibility of renewal for a second year depending on satisfactory 
performance. The successful applicant will be encouraged to visit with 
collaborators at other participating institutions and attendance at 
frequent workshops will offer additional opportunities for the postdoc 
to network with scientists throughout the country. More details about 
the climate process team are available at 
http://www-pord.ucsd.edu/~jen/cpt/ .

The successful applicant will have a PhD in physical oceanography or in 
related fields such as computer science, applied mathematics, fluid 
dynamics, or atmospheric science, preferably with prior experience in 
large-scale ocean modeling or numerical ocean process studies.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae including a list of 
publications and presentations, contact information for three 
references, and a cover letter online to http://jobs.princeton.edu, 
Requisition # 1300804. Princeton University is an equal opportunity 
employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action 
regulations. For additional information, contact Dr. Sonya Legg 
(slegg at princeton.edu). Review of applications will begin as they are 
received. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
