The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) seeks a Principal Investigator (PI) to develop and direct a marine carbon cycle research team. A Ph.D. in the physical or biological sciences, D. Eng., or equivalent is required. Applicants who are at an early stage in their career (equivalent to assistant professor) with a demonstrated ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment are highly encouraged to respond.
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to contribute to the modeling component of an ambitious new observational program called ORCAS: The O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean Study.
ORCAS seeks to quantify air-sea fluxes of oxygen and carbon dioxide over the Southern Ocean by measuring the seasonal evolution of atmospheric composition from aircraft.
The University of Arizona, Princeton University, and NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) are seeking applicants for a post-doctoral research scientist to assist development of the Southern Ocean simulation of a new high-ocean resolution climate model by making use of observational constraints and simulations including some from a global climate model incorporating a 1/10 degree ocean component.
The position is with the University of Arizona and funded through an NSF grant focused on the Southern Ocean (SOCCOM). The post-doc will be located in Princeton and associated with the Climate Processes and Sensitivity Group at GFDL.
Applicants should have a PhD in atmospheric sciences, oceanography or related science. Candidates should possess (a) a good understanding of climate variability and change and associated ocean dynamics with a focus on the complex processes active in the Southern Ocean, and (b) the ability to analyze global climate simulations by making use of climate and oceanographic datasets.
