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:

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 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.

Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunities/affirmative action employer. Minorities and women are particularly encouraged to apply.
