Research Scientist in Physical Oceanography at Georgia Tech

A research scientist position in physical oceanography is available at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech. The research scientist will work collaboratively on a number of projects focused on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC).  Specifically, the research scientist will work closely with Dr. Susan Lozier, the international lead for the Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP; (www.o-snap.org), on the study of: mechanisms responsible for heat and freshwater fluxes in the North Atlantic; deep water pathways throughout the Atlantic basin; and the impact of subpolar dynamics on the downstream signature of the meridional overturning circulation.  Additionally, the research scientist will work closely with postdoctoral researchers and graduate students in Dr. Lozier’s lab and coordinate communication among the OSNAP international and national partners. 

Job Responsibility:  The individual will be expected to conduct high-quality research in physical oceanography; publish papers; and present work at national and international conferences.  The researcher will also work collaboratively with oceanographers at Georgia Tech and elsewhere on projects related to OSNAP.  Opportunities for cruise participation as part OSNAP will be available.

Qualifications: A PhD in physical oceanography or a related field is required, as is at least two years of post-PhD research experience. A background in large-scale oceanography is preferable and experience with observational and model data sets is desirable.  Excellent organizational and collaborative skills are required and strong oral and written communication skills are expected.

Start date: On or about December 1, 2019.

Salary: Commensurate with the individual’s experience and education.
