PDRA in Arctic Ocean modelling at University of Oxford, UK

Helen Johnson

Post-doctoral Research Assistant

Arctic Ocean Modelling

University of Oxford
Department of Earth Sciences
Grade 7 (£29,249 - £35,938)
Full time, fixed term 36 months
Closing date: 21 May 2012
Job reference: 102724

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position focused on Arctic ocean dynamics. The post-holder will set up a process model of the Arctic ocean and sea ice system. They will use it to investigate the dynamics that govern the present day Arctic ocean circulation, as well as the mechanisms by and timescales on which a seasonally-ice-free Arctic will respond to surface forcing.

Candidates should have research experience, including a bachelors degree and PhD, in Physical Oceanography or a closely related branch of Physics, Mathematics or Earth Sciences. They should have experience of numerical modelling, combined with an interest in dynamical theory and in ocean and sea-ice observations.

The post is based in the Department of Earth Sciences and is closely linked to the sub-department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics. The post-holder will collaborate closely with other members of the TEA-COSI (The Environment of the Arctic: Climate, Ocean and Sea Ice) consortium project as well as with a range of international project partners.

The post is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), for a period of three years, and is available from 1 August 2012.
