Nippon Foundation Fellow Postdoctoral Position in Climate Modeling and Fisheries at Princeton University
The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Biogeochemistry group at Princeton University is seeking energetic and enthusiastic applicants for a postdoctoral position in the area of modeling climate impacts on global fisheries. The position is part of a long-term multi-institutional effort, the Nereus Program, established in collaboration with the Nippon Foundation and University of British Columbia to improve multi-decadal scale predictions of global ocean fisheries.
The individual will join a vigorous interdisciplinary research group under the direction of Prof. Jorge Sarmiento and collaborate with climate and ecosystem modelers at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. He/she will also be able to take advantage of a wide range of related research at Princeton University and at Nereus partner institutions: The University of British Columbia, Duke University, University of Cambridge, and Stockholm University. Areas of particular interest for this position include: improving biogeochemical climate-change projections, expanding these projections to improve their utility for fisheries and living marine resource impact assessments, and developing more mechanistic and integrated representations of climate-fisheries interactions.
Candidates must possess a Ph.D. within three years of the starting date for the appointment, in biological oceanography, fisheries science and management, earth sciences, applied math, or the physical, biological, or chemical sciences. An ability and interest to work across these disciplines is a must, as are strong modeling, quantitative, and statistical skills.
Applicants are asked to submit vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names of at least 3 references to http://jobs.princeton.edu, Req.#1200309. Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and continue until the position i s filled. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
Research on the impacts of climate change on ocean circulation, biogeochemistry, and ecology
The AOS ocean biogeochemistry group seeks energetic and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers to participate in modeling and observational studies of climate impacts on ocean circulation and how these affect ocean biogeochemical cycles and ecology. This effort is part of a broad modeling and observational study of ocean circulation, the global carbon cycle, ocean ecology, and the impact of climate change on all of these. Areas of particular current interest include the Southern Ocean, and the detection and attribution of biogeochemical and ecological change in the ocean.
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 NOAA/GFDL.
Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in the earth sciences, applied math, or the physical, biological, or chemical sciences within three years of the starting date for the appointment. Training in oceanic sciences is strongly preferred, and strong modeling, quantitative, and/or statistical skills are a must. Postdoctoral appointments are initially for one year with the renewal for subsequent years based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Applicants must apply online at http://jobs.princeton.edu , Req # 1200308, and submit vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names of at least 3 references. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position(s) are filled. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
