Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Oceanography and Atmospheric Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA
Texas A&M University, Department of Oceanography and Department of Atmospheric Sciences seek to hire a Postdoctoral Research Associate in coupled regional atmosphere-ocean modeling and ensemble forecasting, starting as soon as possible. The appointment is for 12 months, with an additional funding of at least one year available upon satisfactory performance.
This project is part of a large, multi-institution project to examine the recent BP oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico, funded by the Gulf Research Initiative. Work in this project will involve conducting high-resolution coupled regional atmosphere-ocean model simulations within the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, and carrying out short-term high-resolution coupled ensemble forecasts with initial conditions derived from reanalysis products. We have an existing high-resolution coupled regional atmosphere-ocean model of this region, and successful candidates will be expected to work with our research group to improve the model, conduct simulations and analyze the data. The successful candidate will have many opportunities to pursue their own scientific goals within the framework of the modeling system.
Texas A&M University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applicants from under-represented and minority groups.
