      Research on the impacts of climate change on ocean circulation,
      biogeochemistry, and ecology in the Program in Atmospheric and
      Oceanic Sciences (AOS) at Princeton University

The AOS ocean biogeochemistry group seeks energetic and enthusiastic 
postdoctoral researchers to participate in modeling and observational 
studies of climate impacts on ocean circulation and how these affect 
ocean biogeochemical cycles and ecology. This effort is part of a broad 
modeling and observational study of ocean circulation, the global carbon 
cycle, ocean ecology, and the impact of climate change on all of these. 
Areas of particular current interest include the Southern Ocean, and the 
detection and attribution of biogeochemical and ecological change in the 

Individuals will join a vigorous interdisciplinary research group under 
the direction of Prof. Jorge Sarmiento and will be able to take 
advantage of a wide range of related research at Princeton University 
and NOAA/GFDL, as well as external collaborators at the member 
institutions of the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and 
Modeling (SOCCOM) project sponsored by NSF Polar Programs. Available 
resources include climate and earth system models and major compilations 
of high quality global biogeochemical data sets, as well as the 
opportunity to participate in the SOCCOM initiative to dramatically 
increase Southern Ocean observations using autonomous 
biogeochemical-Argo floats.

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in the earth sciences, applied 
math, or the physical, biological, or chemical sciences within three 
years of the starting date for the appointment. Training in oceanic 
sciences is strongly preferred, and strong modeling, quantitative, 
and/or statistical skills are a must. Postdoctoral appointments are 
initially for one year with the renewal for subsequent years based on 
satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is 
offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Applicants are asked to submit vitae, a statement of research experience 
and interests, and names of at least 3 references 
tohttps://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/206. Review of 
applications will begin as soon as they are received, and continue until 
the position is filled. This position is subject to the University's 
background check policy.
