Postdoctoral position at Old Dominion University

Mike Dinniman


Post-doctoral Research Associate in Oceanography. The Center for Coastal
Physical Oceanography, Old Dominion University has four ongoing NSF-funded
projects (Co-PIs: E. Hofmann, J. Klinck, and M. Dinniman) focused on
various aspects of interactions between the ocean, ecosystems, and
cryosphere of Antarctic coastal and continental shelf systems. This
postdoctoral position is associated with these projects and potentially
involves analysis of data sets acquired from tagged marine mammals and use
of these data with regional ocean circulation models, implementation of a
lower trophic level model in the regional circulation models, and analysis
and modeling of ocean interactions with sea ice and ice shelves. Specific
projects will depend on the interest and expertise of the person hired.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in marine science or equivalent; must have
experience with computer systems and languages, numerical circulation
modeling (ROMS experience desirable), quantitative data analysis methods,
knowledge of physical oceanography of high latitude systems, and
scientific writing. The applicant is expected to prepare research results
for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals, make presentations
at national and international scientific meetings, and attend
project-related workshops. The initial appointment is for one year with a
possible renewal for a second year, pending satisfactory review of each
year’s results.

Consideration of applicants will begin on July 31, 2012 and will continue
until the position is filled. Send resume, a summary of Ph.D. dissertation
research, a statement of research goals, and the names and contact
information for three references to the Old Dominion University Research
Foundation, P.O. Box 6369, Norfolk, VA 23508 or by email to
[hidden email]. Specify Job #12025. AA/EOE
