Postdoctoral Research Assoc
Position Summary: The successful applicant will perform (NSF grant-funded) research on energy-containing turbulent eddy scales, utilizing three existing data sets (Five beam ADCP, hydrographic, meteorological) from a range of depths in the coastal ocean. Interpretation of such scales on the inner to outer continental shelf requires a firm grasp of the dominant tidal, weatherband, and seasonal dynamics that dominate such settings, as well as turbulent-specific dynamical analysis techniques. Work will be facilitated by use of extensive analysis tools already developed, with development of additional techniques as needed. Extensive interaction with project collaborator (the project PI) conducting LES modeling is expected.
Responsibilities: Analysis of high resolution velocity and hydrographic oceanographic observations of processes in the overlapping regimes of turbulence and coastal shelf dynamics
Qualifications: The appointee has received a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., D.V.M., Sc.D., M.D. , PharmD ), usually recently, in a field directly related to the appointee's assigned responsibilities.
