Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate as a part of the “Wave-Ice-Ocean Interactions along the Arctic Coast” project funded by the National Science Foundation.  The project is a collaborative effort of the Applied Physical Laboratory (APL) and the Department of Civil/Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Washington (UW).  The project combines field observations and numerical modeling of wave-ice interactions, coastal circulation, and water temperatures under changing Arctic ice conditions.

Requirements

The postdoc for this position will synthesize field data and model results from three case study sites, followed by application of the results in a hindcast of the larger domain.  They will participate in field data collection in autumn 2019 and 2020.  Demonstrated expertise related to sea ice and/or wave measurements in the polar regions is required.  Prior modeling and coding experience is desired. Candidates with a PhD degree in Physical Oceanography, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, or related fields are encouraged to apply.

Terms

The initial appointment will be for one year, with a flexible start date in the spring of 2019.  Extension of the appointment to a total 2.5 years will be made subject to satisfactory work on the project.

How to Apply

Candidates interested in the postdoctoral position should email both Dr. Jim Thomson (jthomson@apl.washington.edu) and Dr. Nirnimesh Kumar (nirni@uw.edu).  Please provide a complete CV with your email.   Review of applicants will begin on 1 November 2018.
