Postdoctoral Researcher – Sea surface salinity, pCO2, and upper ocean 

The University of Hawaii at Manoa invites applications for a full-time 
Postdoctoral Researcher position starting Fall 2018 to examine the 
relationship between sea surface salinity and pCO2 as part of the second 
Salinity Processes in the Upper Ocean Regional Study (SPURS-2). The 
candidate will be in charge of reducing and analyzing data collected as 
part of the SPURS-2 campaign, with the ultimate goal of producing a 
dataset that could be used in conjunction with the other studies from 
SPURS-2, in particular those examining the effect of rainfall on 
stratification and mixing in the upper ocean, to determine how rainfall 
could affect local and global air-sea CO2 fluxes. That candidate will work 
with Prof. David Ho at University of Hawaii at Manoa, as well as 
collaborators at University of Washington, Scripps Institute of 
Oceanography, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who are involved in 
SPURS-2. The position will be based in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The appointee should possess the following qualifications, skills, 
abilities and experience:

1.	PhD in Oceanography, Biogeochemistry, or relevant field. 

2.	Experience in carbonate chemistry and upper ocean physics

3.	Experience in analyzing large datasets, such as those from satellite 
remote sensing

4.	Ability to work both independently and collaboratively with a team

5.	Highly developed organizational and time management skills with a 
proven ability to meet deadlines. 
6.	Demonstrated relevant publication 
record in refereed journals.

Evaluation of applications will begin immediately with a targeted start 
date of October 2018. The position will be open until filled. The 
appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based on 
performance and funding availability.
