5. Naval Research Laboratory seeks Postdoctoral Associate
Physical Oceanography
Stennis Space Center, Mississippi

The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) seeks candidates for a postdoctoral
associate position in physical oceanography. The position is full-time
and based at the Stennis Space Center, Mississippi.

NRL serves as the lead Navy laboratory for research in ocean and
atmospheric sciences with special strengths in physical oceanography,
marine geosciences, ocean acoustics, marine meteorology, and remote
oceanic and atmospheric sensing.

The successful applicant will work with NRL to study the impact of
reduced ice volume in the Arctic using satellite, airborne, and in situ
observations with coupled models. This study will contribute to
understanding Arctic Ocean dynamics important for increasing the
forecast capabilities of the Navy's state-of-the-art coupled ice-ocean
and ice-ocean-atmosphere model prediction systems. The candidate will
work with NRL researchers to develop new techniques for the assimilation
of snow and ice thickness data into the Community Ice Code (CICE) and
study arctic processes with a relocatable ice-ocean-atmosphere coupled
modeling system.

A broad understanding of physical oceanography and arctic processes is
required. Strong programming skills, especially with MATLAB and FORTRAN,
are required. Familiarity with CICE, the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model
(HYCOM), and WaveWatch III models would be beneficial.
