The Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) of the University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate position in Physical Oceanography. The research focus is on using available satellite and in situ observations, as well as ocean and climate models to study sea level changes along the U.S. east coast. Specific tasks include (i) the assessment of the relative contributions of thermosteric, halosteric, and mass effects to the sea-level changes, (ii) the accurate attribution of coastal sea level changes to dynamic processes in the coupled ocean-atmosphere system, and (iii) understanding the present and characterizing potential future sea level changes in response to the different states of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation.
The incumbent will be responsible for conducting research to improve our understanding of processes driving sea level changes along the U. S. east coast. This will involve analysis of satellite altimetry measurements, tide and pressure gauge data, in situ hydrography (CTD, XBT, Argo), ocean and atmosphere reanalyses, and the use of ocean and/or climate models. He or she will also be responsible for presenting findings at scientific meetings and publishing results in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Minimum education is a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography, Climate Science, or a related field. Desirable qualifications include strong knowledge of ocean and coupled ocean-atmosphere processes, excellent computational skills, and good communication skills. Experience in the analysis of large observational data sets and experience in using ocean and/or climate models will be advantageous.
