We are looking for a University of Miami postdoc to do observation
analysis of the upper and lower limbs of the Atlantic Meridional
Overturning Circulation (AMOC) from moored arrays in the South and North
Atlantic, 34.5S and 26.5N.

The University of Miami is considered among the top tier institutions of
higher education in the U.S. for its academic excellence, superior
medical care, and cutting-edge research. At the U, we are committed to
attracting a talented workforce to support our common purpose of
transforming lives through teaching, research, and service. Through our
values of Diversity, Integrity, Responsibility, Excellence, Compassion,
Creativity and Teamwork (DIRECCT) we strive to create an environment
where everyone contributes in making UM a great place to work. We are
one of the largest private employers in Miami-Dade County; home to more
than 13,400 faculty and staff from all over the world.
The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) of
the University of Miami (UM), Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), invites applications for a Postdoctoral
Associate position in Physical Oceanography. The incumbent will work
with scientists in the Physical Oceanography Division of the Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and with CIMAS scientists.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral associate with a strong
background in the analysis of large-scale and/or time series
observations. The successful candidate will join an energetic research
team at NOAA/AOML using observations from South and North Atlantic
basin-wide moored arrays to study the temporal variability and the
meridional coherence of the upper and lower limbs of the Atlantic
Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). Changes in the amount of heat
and salt carried by the AMOC have a pronounced impact on a variety of
socially important climate and weather phenomena, and quantifying and
understanding how the AMOC varies in space and time is an important

Highly desirable qualifications include:
•Knowledge of Matlab, time series analysis, and the ability to use
ancillary observations and output from numerical models.
•Prior experience with estimating the volume, heat, and/or salt
transport by large-scale ocean currents is also desirable, but not
required, as is an interest in participating in research cruises.
