Post-doc in marine biogeochemical modeling

#1 Post by marjy » Mon Jan 05, 2015 8:48 pm

The Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS) at the College of William and Mary is seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator to work with Dr. Marjorie Friedrichs, and join an NSF-funded multi-institutional research team investigating the impact of atmospheric nitrogen deposition on marine biogeochemical processes. The successful post-doctoral candidate will use a ROMS-based ocean biogeochemical-circulation model to study the relative importance of both physical and biological processes in explaining the increase in algal biomass associated with nitrogen deposition events in nitrogen-limited regions.

A Ph.D. in Marine Science/Oceanography, excellent written and oral communication skills, and experience working with coupled biogeochemical-circulation models is required. Preference will be given to candidates who specifically have experience working with ROMS. The position will be located primarily at VIMS, but the successful candidate will work closely with Dr. Raymond Najjar at The Pennsylvania State University. Salary will be commensurate with experience. The initial appointment is for one year with re-appointments of up to two subsequent years possible, contingent on satisfactory performance and funding availability.

Applications should include a CV, statement of research interests, one-page summary of Ph.D. thesis, and names/addresses of four references. Application materials should be submitted online at Applications will be reviewed until position is filled. An early 2015 start date is preferred. For additional information regarding the position, please contact Dr. Marjorie Friedrichs at

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William & Mary is an Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Employer.
