Postdoctoral Research Scientist Position in SubArctic Atlantic Physical-Biological Interactions

This full-time two-year position, with possible extension pending funding availability and annual review, will be responsible for analysis of historical field- and satellite-derived data for model validation within a project studying the potential control on primary production in the subarctic Atlantic-Arctic Ocean region by physical transport flows (advection, export, mixing).

Application deadline: open until filled.

Position start date: 1 July 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The successful candidate will be encouraged to act as lead on some aspect of the project by selecting one of the project sub-questions as his/her own. The research will be carried out in collaboration with ocean color and regional biogeochemical general circulation models for the subarctic Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

Minimal requirements are a PhD in marine science, oceanography, remote sensing, climate or ecosystem modeling, applied math, or related field. Preferred qualifications include an ability and interest to work across biological and physical disciplines as well as strong modeling, quantitative, and statistical skills. The successful candidate will have published (or submitted) their dissertation chapters in peer reviewed journals.

International travel will be required.

Applications must be submitted online and include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references.
