Postdoctoral Positions in Machine Learning and Atmospheric Science – for a collaborative project between four institutions (deadline: open until all positions are filled)

Postdoctoral researcher in marine climate and biogeochemistry analysis, NORCE (deadline: 11.12.2020)

Postdoctoral Research Fellow position within Climate Predictions, Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen (06.01.2021)

Postdoctoral position in fluid dynamics at the University of Victoria, Canada (deadline: 28.02.2021)


Postdoctoral position in mesoscale air-sea interactions
Location: Imperial College London

This post-doctoral position is part of an exciting joint proposal between Florida State University and Imperial College to study the local interaction of the Gulf Stream with the atmosphere in the deterministic regime of weather predictions (timescales less than about two weeks). To do so a realistic regional coupled model will be used, and two-way coupling as well as one-way forcing experiments will be designed, run and analysed. The position is funded for 22 months of salary, ideally starting on January 1st 2021.

The successful candidate is expected to have a PhD in physical oceanography, meteorology or air-sea interactions and, ideally, prior experience with the modelling platforms ROMS and/or WRF. This position will also require enthusiasm for collaborative work in an international team of researchers in the UK (Dr Czaja’s group) and in the USA (Profs R. Parfitt and W. Dewar’s groups).
