[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc position: ocean food web modeling (NCAR)
mclong at ucar.edu
Tue Nov 10 08:44:50 MST 2015
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the area of marine ecosystem
and biogeochemistry modeling. The postdoc will work with a team of
scientists at NCAR, DOE, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to
develop a food web model for the California Current Ecosystem. The
overarching objectives are to enable robust predictions of marine ecosystem
dynamics in the context of climate variability and change. The model will
be developed in a new framework called the Marine Biogeochemistry Library
(MARBL), which is a code base designed to be independent of a particular
ocean circulation model. The postdoctoral scholar will work in close
collaboration with scientists affiliated with the California Current
Ecosystem LTER (http://cce.lternet.edu) and have access to the
high-performance computing environment at NCAR.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in oceanography, physical, biological or
chemical sciences, engineering or applied math. Experience doing research
in fields relevant to ocean biogeochemistry and/or ecology is required.
Marine ecosystem and oceanographic modeling experience is highly
desirable. A demonstrated ability to work across physical and biological
disciplines is preferred.
