Welcome to POGO
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.
Obituary for John H. Steele
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution announces with great sorrow the death of John H. Steele at his home in Falmouth, Mass., on November 4, 2013, 11 days before his 87th birthday.
John H. Steele was director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for 12 years and was an intellectual leader of the national and international ocean science community. He was well known for his development of quantitative approaches to the study of marine ecosystems, having played a key role in creating major research programs that contribute to our knowledge of the ocean's role in global processes.
Senior Staff Associate Position, New York, USA

Assistant professor in Physical Oceanography at Old Dominion University
The Department of Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University (http://sci.odu.edu/oceanography/) invites applications for a tenure track position as Assistant or Associate Professor in Physical Oceanography. We seek a broad-minded scholar with an interest in the physical processes in the ocean on times scales of inter-annual to centuries and their role in the Earth System. Preference will be given to scientists who employ quantitative analytical methods and/or models and focus their research on societally relevant issues, such as global and climate change, the role of the ocean in the global water cycle, and development of predictive capabilities on decadal time scales.
