Postdoc in ocean process modeling and theory at Stanford

#1 Post by leift » Fri Jun 12, 2015 10:42 pm

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in ocean process
modeling and theory to work with Prof. Leif Thomas in the Department of
Earth System Science at Stanford University. The successful candidate(s)
will pursue research in the dynamics of submesoscale processes and
inertia-gravity wave-mean flow interactions at ocean fronts and their
impact on the larger-scale circulation. The research will involve a
combination of theory, numerical modeling, and analysis of
submesoscale-resolving observations from recent field campaigns. A
strong background in fluid dynamics with application to the ocean or
atmosphere is required. Knowledge of ROMS is highly desirable.

Evaluation of applications will begin immediately (June 2015) and will
continue until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable, but
completion of the PhD is required. The initial appointment is for one
year and renewable for one additional year, subject to satisfactory
performance. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Applications
should be sent by email to and include a CV; brief
statement of research interests, experience, and future career plans;
and the names and contact information of three or more references.
