The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, invites applications for postdoctoral research associate or assistant research scientist positions. The successful candidate(s) will join a team that is developing and applying ocean circulation models to understand mechanisms of exchange across continental shelves, particularly at high latitudes. Other opportunities in Arctic/Subarctic and Southern Ocean dynamical oceanography may also be available. The positions involve collaboration with: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and/or the Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics at Johns Hopkins. Further information about our relevant research and these collaborations may be found at: http://pages.jh.edu/~thaine1/
An ideal candidate will be a creative independent thinker with a Ph.D. in dynamical or physical oceanography, but applicants in related fields will also be closely considered. Knowledge in one or more of the following areas is advantageous: ocean circulation, numerical ocean models, high-latitude climate dynamics, and geophysical fluid dynamics. The start date is negotiable, but completion of the Ph.D. is required. The appointment(s) will last up to three years. Appointees will receive a competitive salary and benefits and will be eligible to participate in Johns Hopkins University health plans.
Applications should be submitted electronically through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/28665 by March 15, 2015 to receive full consideration. They should include a cover letter, your curriculum vitae plus the names and email addresses of three or more academic referees.
