A postdoctoral position in physical oceanography is available in the Department of Marine Science at The University of Southern Mississippi at Stennis Space Center, MS. The successful candidate will work on various problems related to tide and internal tide generation, propagation and dissipation in the realistically forced global HYCOM model. In particular, a better parameterization of internal tide wave drag will be explored. The candidate is expected to perform idealized 2D and realistic global 3D HYCOM simulations. This position allows for ample collaboration opportunities with science partners of the ONR NOPP project Topic 3 "Seamless Forecasting from the Deep Ocean to the Coast."
A PhD in physical oceanography or other related field is required at the time of the appointment. A qualified applicant is anticipated to have experience in numerical modeling and knowledge of internal wave processes in the ocean.
This position is initially for one year but is renewable based on satisfactory performance. Salary is in the 50-60k range and is determined based on experience. Interested candidates can email a cover letter, a resume, and contact information of three references to Maarten.Buijsman@usm.edu
