- Post-doc position in Environmental Radioisotope Geochemistry lab at Bar-Ilan University, Israel. The candidate will be involved in an interdisciplinary study of the biological pump and transport processes in the warm ultra-oligotrophic eastern Mediterranean Sea, which has been recently subjected to increasing anthropogenic pressure, such as extensive drilling for oil and gas and coastal water desalination.The work will focus on a recently-deployed deep water observatory (‘DeepLev’), accompanied by monthly and seasonal cruises across the Levantine basin. The research will involve geochemical, microbiological and physical aspects. Apply for the Mortimer Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program by June 1. For more details, please contact Prof. Yishai Weinstein
- Postdoctoral fellowship: “Defining the evolvable phenotype landscape for marine phytoplankton” with Martina Doblin (University of Technology Sydney). A Moore Foundation project, pursued in collaboration with the Universities of Edinburgh (UK) and Southern California (USA), starting in July 2018.
NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is seeking postdoctoral scientists in Oceanography to work on projects related to the oceans role in climate, ocean-climate interactions, heat and carbon uptake, and ocean biogeochemistry.
1) Ocean Modeling and Analysis, Advisors: Anastasia Romanou and Gavin A. Schmidt
2) Ocean Biogeochemical Modeling, Advisors: Anastasia Romanou, Gavin Schmidt and Tim Hall
The fellowships are designed to help advance NASA’s climate modeling efforts by combining NASA observations with models and utilizing novel techniques in numerical analysis as well as data science. Successful candidates will be expected to work with the NASA-GISS climate model, NASA observations and in collaboration with scientists at NASA-GISS. Candidates’ background may be in Physical and/or Biogeochemical Oceanography, Earth Science, Physics, Mathematics or Computer Science. NASA Postdoctoral Program application deadlines are March 1st, July 1st and November 1st each year. Eligible candidates within five years of receiving their PhD may apply as Postdoctoral Fellows and those with more than five years after their PhD may apply as a Senior Fellows.
Open until filled
- Three year postdoc “Establishing the traceability of pH measurements for long-term carbon system monitoring from coastal waters to open ocean” with Wei Jun Cai, Regina Easley, and Jason Waters at U. Delaware
- Postdoctoral Scientist Positions in Deep Learning for Climate Model Parameterization – open until filled
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science each seek an outstanding candidate for a new initiative between Columbia University and the University of California, Irvine. This venture is aimed at launching a major effort to apply deep learning techniques to improve sub-grid physical parameterizations in climate models. The selected Postdoctoral Research Scientists are crucial to the success of this initiative that allows newly minted PhD researchers to benefit from multiple perspectives and specialties. Each successful candidate will preferably combine expertise in fundamental geophysical fluid dynamics and numerical modeling with new statistical inference methods. Each of the two positions will have a distinct focus, but the Postdoctoral Research Scientists will be expected to work collaboratively. The Postdoctoral Research Scientist with atmospheric science and the Postdoctoral Research Scientist with physical oceanography will use their differing, yet connected research fields to further the findings of deep learning techniques to improve sub-grid physical parameterizations in climate models. Both teams will interact remotely frequently to exploit commonalities in methodology.
