Postdoctoral position at Old Dominion University

Mike Dinniman


(Please note that this is an additional position to the previously
announced Post-Doctoral Research Associate (#12025) and not a

Post-doctoral Research Associate in Physical Oceanography.  The Center for
Coastal Physical Oceanography, Old Dominion University has four ongoing
NSF-funded projects (Co-PIs: J. Klinck, M. Dinniman and E. Hofmann)
focused on various aspects of interactions between the atmosphere, ocean
and cryosphere of the Southern Ocean with a focus on Antarctic coastal and
continental shelf systems.  This postdoctoral position is associated with
these projects and involves the use of regional ocean circulation, sea ice
and ice shelf models to analyze the influence of changing surface forcing
and the importance of meso-scale dynamics on ocean circulation and glacial
melt.  An important aspect of this effort is the comparison of
observations to model simulations.  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 multi-cpu
computer systems and languages, numerical circulation modeling (ROMS
experience desirable), quantitative data analysis methods, knowledge of
physical oceanography of high latitude systems, and experience with
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 successful candidate will work within an
active research group pursuing several research topics in ocean processes
around Antarctica.  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 September 17, 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 #12035. AA/EOE
