Postdoc opportunity: in the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) at Princeton University

The AOS biogeochemistry group seeks energetic and enthusiastic post-docs to participate in the development of models of ocean biogeochemical cycles and their relationship to climate and ocean circulation as well as the analysis of oceanic and atmospheric observations of transient and biogeochemical tracers. One or more positions are available. This effort is part of a broad modeling and observational study of the global carbon cycle, ocean ecology, ocean circulation, and the impact of climate change on all of these.

Individuals will join a vigorous interdisciplinary research group under the direction of Prof. Jorge Sarmiento and will be able to take advantage of a wide range of related research at Princeton University and GFDL/NOAA. Areas of particular interest include: the development of models of the influence of rivers and ocean acidification on the ocean CaCO3 cycle; studies of historic changes in ocean circulation, biogeochemistry, and ecology using a combination of tracer observations and reanalysis-forced ocean general circulation models; simulations of paleo and future circulation and biogeochemistry using earth system models; and analysis of physical processes such as wind forcing and mixing that control Southern Ocean circulation and its role in anthropogenic CO2 uptake and the return of nutrients from the deep ocean to the surface.

Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in the earth sciences, applied math, or the physical, biological, or chemical sciences. Training in oceanic sciences is strongly preferred, and strong modeling, quantitative, and/or statistical skills are a must.

Applicants are asked to submit vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names of at least 3 references to, Req.# 1000759. Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and continue until the positions are filled. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
