Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Lagrangian Sea-Ice Modelling at AOS Program, Princeton University
Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program and the Andlinger Center for Energy
and the Environment at Princeton University, in association with NOAA’s
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or more
senior researcher to develop a Lagrangian model of sea-ice dynamics for use in
regional and global ocean circulation models.
will involve exploring innovative approaches to modeling sea ice, with a focus
on representing sea ice floes, and collections of floes, as Lagrangian
elements. The project aims to construct an operational Lagrangian sea-ice
model, which can be tested against existing grid-based numerical models of
sea-ice. The Lagrangian sea-ice model will be used to study the large-scale
properties of sea ice, which are emergent from individual floe interactions.
candidate has a strong background in one or more areas among sea-ice dynamics,
material science, geophysical fluid dynamics, soft-matter science, and
numerical methods. Experience with scientific software development, Lagrangian
methods, discrete-element methods or smoothed particle hydrodynamics solvers
will be advantageous in this research.
must have a Ph.D. in either applied mathematics, physics, cryosphere, or a
related field. Initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of
renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available funding.
applications, including a CV, publication list, a statement of research interests,
and contact information of 3 references should be submitted by September 15,
2019 for full consideration.Applicants should apply online https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/12908. For more information about
