Three Job Opportunities at the Naval Research Laboratory

#1 Post by arango » Wed Sep 23, 2009 9:33 pm

Naval Research Laboratory,
Ocean Dynamics and Prediction Branch



Ocean Data Assimilation and Probabilistic Prediction

The Naval Research Laboratory has openings for Ph.D. researchers to advance capabilities in ocean data assimilation and probabilistic forecasting. This includes optimization of underwater, airborne and satellite observing systems, representation of ocean processes affecting temperature, salinity, and mixed-layer depth, uncertainty analysis in coupled systems, and ensemble and probabilistic ocean forecasting. High priority efforts presently include targeting ocean glider observations, representing probability in ocean/acoustic systems and satellite-observed surface heat fluxes. This long term work is developing cutting edge capabilities that transition to operational forecast centers.

This is an excellent opportunity to work with some of the best modelers and data analysts in the ocean community. The Naval Research Laboratory has access to the major supercomputer sites in addition to excellent local computer resources. The laboratory is collocated with the Naval Oceanographic Office, which is the largest national operational forecast center for oceanography.

An overview of some research projects and systems developed within the NRL oceanography division is available at http://www7320.nrlssc.navy.mil/projects.php.

We are seeking candidates for both post-doctoral and full-time positions. Annual salary ranges from $61,000 to $101,000 depending on experience. Applicants must be a US citizen or permanent resident at time of application. NRL is an equal opportunity employer.

Nearshore and Coupled Model Systems

The Naval Research Laboratory has openings for PhD researchers to push forward the frontiers of ocean forecasting. Problems that must be addressed cover a wide scope of physics including surface waves, thermohaline circulation, nearshore circulation, estuarine and riverine modeling, Arctic ice modeling, internal waves and ocean/atmosphere coupling. This challenging work includes processing and analysis of satellite and in water observations, construction of numerical model systems and assimilation for predicting the ocean environment. This work is long term, and the end goal is to build cutting edge technology systems that transition to operational forecast centers.

Open Ocean Processes and Predictions

The Naval Research Laboratory has openings for PhD researchers (both permanent and post‐doctoral) to push forward the frontiers of ocean forecasting. Problems that must be addressed cover a wide scope of physics including parameterization of oceanic processes, construction and analysis of ocean models and forecast systems, and basic and applied research of ocean dynamics. This challenging work includes processing and analysis of satellite and in water observations, development of numerical model systems and assimilation for predicting the ocean environment. This work is long term, and the end goal is to build cutting edge technology systems that transition to operational forecast centers.

Charlie Barronvia, Richard Allardvia, and Patrick Hoganvia?

I had no idea so many Italians worked at NRL! ;-)
