Job Title: Postdoctoral Research Associate
Department Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences - 343
Position Summary: Model Marine Ecosystem Tipping Points Researchers at
The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University in
cooperation with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) seeks
several postdoctoral research associates and/or more senior scientists to
develop and apply Earth System Models (ESMs) and other tools necessary for
understanding where, when, and how marine ecosystems may reach critical
"tipping points" or abrupt major changes in structure, function, and
services. Topics of particular emphasis include: application of GFDL's
current Earth System Models to assess potential marine ecosystem tipping
points under climate change, ocean acidification and other human influence,
development of benthic and estuarine biogeochemistry and ecosystem
components GFDL's next generation Earth System Model, exploration of
coastal representation, and ecological data assimilation. Personnel will
join an active group at Princeton and GFDL studying the connections between
biogeochemistry, ecosystems and climate (
These are two-year positions (subject to renewal after the first year)
based at GFDL in Princeton, New Jersey. Complete applications, including a
CV, publication list, 3 references in order to solicit letters of
recommendation, and a one-to-two page statement of research interests
should be submitted by May 31, 2014 for full consideration, though
evaluation will be ongoing. This position is subject to the University's
background check policy.
Essential Qualifications: PhD is required. Candidates with quantitative,
interdisciplinary knowledge from subsets of fields including climate
dynamics, ocean and coastal biogeochemistry, marine ecosystem dynamics, and
fisheries science and management are particularly encouraged to apply.
Experience analyzing large data sets and/or model output is also critical,
as is model development experience for those positions.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will
receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color,
religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran
status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
