Subject: Postdoctoral Investigator – Marine Ecosystem and Ocean Carbon Cycle Modeling.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Applicants are sought for a postdoctoral research position for one year
with the potential for extension to a second year in the areas of marine
ecosystem and ocean carbon cycle modeling in Scott Doney's group at WHOI
( http://www.whoi.edu/science/MCG/doneylab/index.html ).
The position will involve the development, implementation and data-based
evaluation of marine ecosystem and biogeochemical models within the
framework of the global, three-dimensional ocean simulation in the NCAR
Community Climate System Model (CCSM). Specific research foci include the
role of multi-nutrient limitation, trace metals, and community structure on
ocean carbon storage; the biogeochemical cycling of dimethylsulfide; and
ocean climate-carbon cycle interactions under past, present and future
conditions. A significant fraction of the applicant's research will be
devoted to model-data comparisons with in-situ observations and satellite
remote sensing. This work is part of a long term scientific project
focused on the interaction of global carbon cycle and the climate system.
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
Ph.D. is required. Applicants with an interest and experience in
environmental numerical modeling and/or the analysis of large data sets and
a background in a relevant field which could include but is not limited to
biological, chemical or physical oceanography, marine or aquatic ecology,
biogeochemistry, fluid dynamics, or ocean and environmental engineering are
encouraged to apply.
