*Ocean Modeling Postdoc *
*Job Description:*Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National
Laboratory (LANL) is a center for research in a wide range of scientific
disciplines, including climate science, space exploration, geophysics,
renewable energy, supercomputing, medicine, and nanotechnology. The
Computer, Computational, and Statistical Sciences (CCS) Division is a
vibrant scientific research and development organization working in
multiple mission areas of Los Alamos National Laboratory, including its
The Computational Physics Group, CCS-2, seeks a postdoctoral researcher
to work on a project aimed at *identifying controls on the strength and
variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC).*
In particular we are interested in quantifying the contribution of
Agulhas Leakage to the heat and salt budget of the Atlantic through
numerical simulation. The position is within HiLAT, a DOE-funded project
to study regional and global impacts of high-latitude climate change.
For candidates interested in spending half-time on research of their
choice, the possibility exists to pursue a joint appointment with LANL’s
Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS), which includes a dynamic community
of postdocs focused on complex nonlinear problems.
The ideal candidate would have a background in large-scale computational
oceanography, and an interest to work in an interdisciplinary team of
climate scientists. But any strong candidate with an interest in
physical oceanography, strong computational skills, and a doctorate in a
relevant field like climate science, atmospheric science, computational
science, mathematics or physics will be given serious consideration.
*Minimum Job Requirements: *
·Doctorate in physical oceanography, climate science, atmospheric
science, computational science, mathematics, physics, or similar field.
·Strong computational skills.
·Interest in physical oceanography.
·Ability to effectively communicate technical work in presentations and
·Background in large-scale computational oceanography.
·Interest to work in an interdisciplinary team of climate scientists
*Education:*PhD in relevant field completed within the past five years,
or soon to be completed.
*Notes to Applicants:* In addition to applying on-line at
IRC51660), interested candidates should send their application package
(cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and
names and contact information of three references) to Wilbert Weijer
(wilbert at lanl.gov <mailto:wilbert at lanl.gov>). Review of applications
will start October 3, 2016, and continue until the position is filled.
*Pre-Employment Drug Test: *The Laboratory requires successful
applicants to complete a pre-employment drug test and maintains a
substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.
Exceptional candidates may be considered for a Director's Fellowship and
outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Marie
Curie, Richard P. Feynman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines
