Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Oceanic Circulation Modeling
Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics
University of California, Los Angeles

We are seeking a researcher to work on problems of oceanic circulation dynamics using the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS). The researcher would join a highly experienced group with expertise in computational methods, realistic simulation of complex flows, and dynamical processes. A special focus is the interaction of currents with abyssal, continental-slope and -shelf, strait, and shoreline topographies.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physical oceanography or related discipline, experience in the numerical modeling of oceanic flows (preferably using ROMS), knowledge of geophysical fluid dynamics, a good publication record, ability to synthesize both ocean model output and oceanographic observations, and interest in collaboration on interdisciplinary problems.

The initial appointment is full-time for one year with continuation with satisfactory progress. The position is available immediately, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. UCLA is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty, students, and staff. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Please email a cover letter stating your research accomplishments and interests, a curriculum vitae, representative publications, and contact information for three references to:

Prof. James C. McWilliams
Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
University of California, Los Angeles
