Postdoctoral researchers for AOS ocean biogeochemistry group

Research on the impacts of climate change on ocean circulation, biogeochemistry, and ecology in the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) at Princeton University 

AOS PrincetonThe AOS ocean biogeochemistry group seeks energetic and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers to participate in modeling and observational studies of climate impacts on ocean circulation and how these affect ocean biogeochemical cycles and ecology. This effort is part of a broad modeling and observational study of ocean circulation, the global carbon cycle, ocean ecology, and the impact of climate change on all of these. Areas of particular current interest include the Southern Ocean, and the detection and attribution of biogeochemical and ecological change in the ocean.

Individuals will join a vigorous interdisciplinary research group under the direction of Prof. Jorge Sarmiento and will be able to take advantage of a wide range of related research at Princeton University and NOAA/GFDL, as well as external collaborators at the member institutions of the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project sponsored by NSF Polar Programs. Available resources include climate and earth system models and major compilations of high quality global biogeochemical data sets, as well as the opportunity to participate in the SOCCOM initiative to dramatically increase Southern Ocean observations using autonomous biogeochemical-Argo floats.

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in the earth sciences, applied math, or the physical, biological, or chemical sciences within three years of the starting date for the appointment. Training in oceanic sciences is strongly preferred, and strong modeling, quantitative, and/or statistical skills are a must. Postdoctoral appointments are initially for one year with the renewal for subsequent years based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary is offered commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Applicants are asked to submit vitae, a statement of research experience and interests, and names of at least 3 references to https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/206. Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and continue until the position is filled. This position is subject to the University’s background check policy.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
