University of Colorado

Professors I Grooms and W Kleiber in the Department of Applied Mathematics
at the University of Colorado, Boulder, are seeking a postdoctoral scholar
to collaborate in the design, implementation, and testing of a stochastic
parameterization for global ocean models; the position is available as early
as January 2018. The research will use prior dynamical considerations and
data to develop a multiscale, inhomogeneous random-field model for ocean
eddies at scales not resolved by global ocean models. This model will form
the basis of a stochastic parameterization to be implemented in a global
ocean model. The post-doc will work closely with domain scientists at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO. We encourage
applicants from highly motivated and creative individuals who have
backgrounds in one or more of the following: 1) geophysical fluid dynamics
and simulation, 2) spatial statistics, and 3) stochastic dynamics.
Successful applicants will have a PhD in applied mathematics, statistics,
atmospheric and oceanic sciences, or other quantitative field. Good
communication skills and strong programming skills are essential.
