Welcome to POGO
UCLA Oceanic circulation modeling position
Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Oceanic Circulation Modeling Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics University of California, Los Angeles.
We are seeking a researcher to work on problems of oceanic circulation dynamics using the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS). The researcher would join a highly experienced group with expertise in computational methods, realistic simulation of complex flows, and dynamical processes. A special focus is the interaction of currents with abyssal, continental-slope and -shelf, strait, and shoreline topographies.
First African Discovery Camp for Research-Based Training
The University of Namibia (UNAM) is offering an open Research Camp on "Microbial and Geochemical Oceanography in Upwelling Ecosystems". The course will take place on 4-26 March 2014 at SANUMARC in Henties Bay, Namibia. A flyer is attached and detailed information about the course is available at http://www.microeco.uzh.ch/rgno_namibia/RGNO_Namibia_14.html. The Research Camp is made possible through support from the Agouron Institute and other sources, and is a component of SCOR's efforts to build capacity for ocean science in southern Africa. This activity is partially a result of the SCOR Visiting Scholar initiative, but UNAM faculty and staff have enthusiastically implemented the Research Camp concept.
Research Fellow (biogeochemical modelling), NOCS, UK
The National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS) is seeking to recruit a highly motivated research fellow to work on the implementation of marine biogeochemical models in support of the next generation of UK Earth System Models (UKESM).
URI Director for Coastal Resources Center
The University of Rhode Island seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Graduate School of Oceanography, to carry out teaching, research, and graduate student advising and to serve as Director of the Coastal Resources Center. The position will be filled at the Full Professor level. This is a tenure-track, academic year position, with anticipated start date of September 2014.
Physical oceanography postdoctoral opportunity, Princeton University
The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in association with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or more senior scientist to develop parameterizations of internal wave-driven mixing, and implement and evaluate the parameterizations in global climate models. This position is a component of the ongoing NSF and NOAA-funded Climate Process Team, consisting of 15+ PIs from leading US institutions, with combined expertise in modeling, observational analysis and theoretical work. The ultimate goal of the project is to better parameterize internal-wave driven mixing in ocean climate models.
