Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program, in association with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to work in the area of regional ocean model development.

This work involves further developing the regional capabilities of the MOM6 numerical ocean model, in both a forced ocean and a fully coupled-to-atmosphere context. The candidate would focus on the development of numerical methods and algorithms in the regional version of MOM6, and would participate in the development of new regional applications to be used to address questions in predictability, climate and Earth system model down-scaling, ecosystem science and fisheries.

The ideal candidate has a strong background in one or more areas among dynamical oceanography, dynamical meteorology, applied mathematics, or numerical methods. Experience with scientific software development will be advantageous in this research.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in either oceanography, meteorology, applied mathematics, physics, or a related field. Initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available funding.
