Multiple postdoctoral research positions are available as part of a multi-institution Climate Process Team (CPT) on Ocean Transport and Eddy Energy. The CPT aims to survey, improve, and unify new advances in energy-, flow-, and scale-aware parameterizations of mesoscale eddies, in process studies and global ocean models; constrain parameters and parameterized fluxes through a synthesis of up-to-date observations of ocean energetics and transport; and implement and assess schemes within IPCC-class climate models at NCAR, NOAA-GFDL, and DOE-LANL. The expectation is that modernized, energetically-consistent mesoscale eddy parameterizations will significantly reduce climate model biases in ocean currents, stratification, and transport.
Applications must include a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and contact information of 3 references. Applicants wishing to be considered for positions in multiple institutions should indicate this in their cover letter, and submit a separate application to each position of interest. For more information email Laure Zanna (mailto:email@example.com), or any of the collaborating PIs listed above.
