Postdoc in Physical Oceanography
The Gullmarsfjorden in
Sweden will be used to test fundamental assumptions about ocean turbulence. In
collaboration with the universities of East Anglia, Gothenburg and Rostock we
will directly observe lateral and horizontal momentum fluxes across the fjord's
boundary layers. These data will be used to test commonly used turbulence
closures of numerical ocean models. The successful candidate will have
expertise in either acquisition and analysis of oceanographic data or numerical
modelling of the coastal ocean. A keen interest in combining observations,
models and theory is expected. The position is funded for 2 years.
The postdoc’s duties will include research within
physical oceanography as well as teaching. The post may also include
performance of other duties.
The position is
open from May 1st 2019 or as
soon as possible thereafter.
University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity
of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates
regardless of personal background.
