Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The coastal biogeochemical dynamics lab in the Dept. of the Marine Sciences located on the Avery Point campus at the University of Connecticut invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The successful candidate will advance our understanding of the predictability of oxygen and temperature globally as a participant in a NOAA-funded project about forecasting metabolic indices in the global ocean on decadal timescales. Our project objective is to examine the predictability of fisheries-relevant environmental variables beyond sea surface temperature and chlorophyll, such as oxygen and related metabolic metrics, as well as potential limitations on fisheries that this metabolic index projects in Earth system models.

This position will provide an opportunity to advance the understanding of the controls over regionally predictability of biogeochemical fields, and explore decadal prediction capabilities of ESMs as well as their application to fisheries management. The position will also enable the scholar the opportunity to collaborate with the NOAA MAPP Task force associated with the project funding as well as two other closely related projects pertaining to modeling feedbacks between fish and biogeochemistry in ESMs.

The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of ocean biogeochemical cycling including carbon, oxygen and nutrient cycles in the context of large-scale ocean circulation, expertise in programming and large data set analysis, and model evaluation. Preference will be given to candidates with experience with large biogeochemical observational data sets like ARGO.

The position will be located at the regional campus at Avery Point working predominately with the laboratory of Samantha Siedlecki, with opportunities to travel to NCAR in Boulder, Colorado to work with Matt Long, a co-PI on the project.
