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.
