Postdoctoral Fellow – Ocean Process Studies

Postdoctoral Fellow – Ocean Process Studies

The Department of Physics at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate to study oceanic
submesoscale processes, their implications for vertical fluxes on
scales of 100 m – 10 km, their interaction with mesoscales and
dependence on mixing, using modeling and analysis.  Knowledge of ocean
dynamics and modeling at small and large scales, mixing
parameterizations, data analysis, or theoretical oceanography is a
plus.  The position is funded by NSF collaborative award and offers
scope of interdisciplinary numerical and theoretical work motivated by
observations. The fellow will work with the research group of Prof.
Amit Tandon and interact with Dr. Amala Mahadevan and her research
group at Boston University, and with graduate students and scientists
at the School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST). Other
responsibilities may include assistance in grant proposal writing and
general lab/student supervision.

The
minimum qualifications are a Ph.D. in physical oceanography,
atmospheric sciences, applied mathematics, mechanical engineering,
environmental physics or a closely-related field and eligibility to be
employed in the United States.  The candidate should be highly
motivated and have demonstrated ability to work independently as well
as within a research group.  Strong oral and written communication
skills are essential.  Salary is commensurate with qualifications.  The
initial appointment at UMass Dartmouth will be for one year, with
possibilities for extension to a second year.

Applicants
should send a letter stating their interests and qualifications, along
with a current curriculum vitae, a brief narrative describing their
professional goals, and a list of three professional references,
electronically to atandon@umassd.edu.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled.  An official graduate transcript will be required
for finalists.  The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is an EEO/AA
employer.
