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 
research challenge.

Applicants must have:
•Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography, Atmospheric Science or a related field 
and a demonstrated ability/interest in publishing results in the 
peer-reviewed literature.

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.

Position #: P100015908

•Application should include curriculum vitae, a cover letter stating 
research interests and experience, and the contact information for three 
professional references.
•Selection processes will start from November 1, 2016.
•The positions will be kept open until filled.
•The starting date of the position is expected to be in January 1, 2017, 
but is negotiable.
•The appointment will be initially one year, renewable for a second year 
depending on the performance.
•Salary will commensurate with experience.
