A postdoctoral research position is available in the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. The researcher will take the lead on a study of the mechanisms by which variable wind and buoyancy forcing impact nutrient delivery and productivity in the North Atlantic subtropical basin on interannual time scales. In order to understand interbasin differences, a secondary focus will be on the North Pacific subtropical gyre. The study will involve analyses of both observational data and model output.
Funding is available for the postdoctoral researcher to occupy a full time position at Duke for at least two years. Candidates should have a PhD in oceanography and are expected to have experience in the gathering, analysis and interpretation of observational and/or modeling data.
Applicants should submit a cv, a one-page cover letter describing their interest in this position, and the names of three references to Susan Lozier (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin on June 10, 2015 and continue until the position is filled.
