Postdoctoral Researcher Position at UCLA (AOS)

Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Upper-Ocean Submesosale Currents
Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)

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. The focus of the research will be on upper-ocean currents and their intrinsic (eddy) variability, especially submesoscale fronts and vortices, and with particular attention to the vertical velocity and material exchanges between the surface boundary layer and the pycnocline. Problems of interest include surface gravity wave--current interaction, both within the surf zone and outside, and interaction with the turbulent boundary layer. The work is partly motivated and supported by field experiments along California's coast and in the western Mediterranean.

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