*Physical oceanography job for post-PhD, with observational experience*

*About the role:*Applications are invited for a Southern Ocean Marine
Physicist with a focus on circulation and climate. The post will contribute
to two ongoing projects. The first is the 20-year time series of repeat
hydrography in Drake Passage http://noc.ac.uk/drake-passage that monitors
the changing climate in the Southern Ocean and contributes to the UK’s
sustained observing system and National Capability in Repeat Hydrography.
The second project is a NERC grant to investigate the physical processes
underpinning the oceanic delivery of heat to the rapidly melting ice
shelves of West Antarctica.  The position will focus on the analysis of a
range of novel observations of oceanic processes and ice-ocean interaction
collected near Pine Island Glacier in the Amundsen Sea Embayment, within
the NERC iSTAR (Ice Sheet Stability; http://blog.antarctica.ac.uk/istar/)

The successful candidate will join the Ocean Circulation and Processes
group, home to the UK’s National Capability in Argo and Repeat hydrography
and the RAPID-MOC array. You will work closely with the team examining the
physical processes relevant to the dynamics of the Southern Ocean
circulation. The group includes an active sea-going team, numerical
modellers and theoreticians. You will collaborate with other UK and
international scientists where appropriate. Both projects have fieldwork
components in which you will be expected to participate.

This post is offered on NERC terms and conditions and is available for up
to 4 years.

*Salary:*This post is offered on NERC terms and conditions, with indicative
salaries at Band 6 (Staff Scientist) being £26,450 to £29,710 per annum and

(depending upon experience).

*About you:*You should have a PhD, or equivalent research experience, in
Physical Oceanography and experience of analysis of in situ oceanographic
data and have led or shown the potential to lead research projects.
You will have a good knowledge of ocean dynamics and strong quantitative
and communication skills, and the ability to conduct innovative research
leading to high-impact publications in international refereed journals.
