Opportunity: Post-Doctoral Research Scientist, Texas A&M Corpus Christi

Qualifications:  PhD in Oceanography or a related field such as Physics, Fluid Dynamics, or Atmospheric Sciences is required. Experience in measurements of turbulence and ability to program in Matlab is required.

Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences) seeks applications for a competitively awarded postdoctoral fellowship from highly qualified candidates interested in any aspect of: oceanic turbulence measurements, small-scale air-sea interactions, mixing and dispersion under wavy interface or oceanic boundary layer dynamics.

The successful candidate will join a multi-institutional team of researchers working on the dispersion and turbulence in the Gulf of Mexico. The position is renewable every year depending on performance – initially for three years.

The research will involve a combination of techniques, including in-situ observations, lab studies, remote sensing and/or modeling and the position comes with expectation of publication in refereed journals.  The candidates are expected to participate in a few multi-institutional cruises, design and carry out oceanic microstructure measurements, be responsible for processing of acquired data. Fieldwork will begin in summer 2012 and applicants must be able to participate at that time.

Applicants should include a statement of past research experience and future interests, a current CV, and the names and email addresses of three references.
