Postdoctoral research opportunity in physical oceanography at the Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center, MS, USA
Please see the below postdoctoral opportunity at NRL, SSC:
Postdoctoral Research Opportunity. The Ocean Sciences Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) at Stennis Space Center (SSC), MS is seeking a postdoctoral associate in physical oceanography with research interests in the areas of ocean observations, ocean mixing, ocean fronts, and biophysical interactions. The candidate will work with NRL researchers as part of the CONsortium for oil spill exposure pathways in COastal River-Dominated Ecosystems (CONCORDE) team. CONCORDE is a newly funded consortium under the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (http://gulfresearchinitiative.org) consisting of 16 researchers from 7 different universities and laboratories. During the fellowship, the successful candidate will work with a wide variety of in situ data with a strong emphasis on observations collected by moorings and a towed profiler in the vicinity of riverine plumes from the Mississippi coastal area. The candidate will be working closely with a small team of CONCORDE researchers to determine physical processes and mixing rates during dedicated experiments, and with the larger consortium to determine their impacts on potential oil exposure in a riverine plume dominated environment. The successful candidate will be required to have a doctorate in oceanography or other relevant discipline and should be able to demonstrate capabilities in publication-quality scientific analysis of physical oceanographic data.
 
The successful candidate will be hired with stipends of approximately $75,621 through the Naval Postdoctoral Program of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) or the National Research Council (NRC) Research Associateship Programs (http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/rap/ or http://www.asee.org/fellowships/nrl). The position is funded for two years and is expected to start in July 2015, but arrangements can be made for an earlier or later start date as needed by the candidate. NRL is an equal opportunity employer. Applicant must be a US citizen or have a permanent resident “green” card. The applicant must be able to pass a sea-physical exam as some sea duty is required, and a NASA background security check is required to work at Stennis Space Center. Interested applicants should send resume and references to: Jeff Book, Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center, MS 39529-5004 or via email to: jeff.book@nrlssc.navy.mil
