The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences invites applications for a full-time (1.00 FTE), 12-month, fixed term Research Associate (Post Doc) position. Reappointment is at the discretion of the Dean.
This Research Associate (Post Doc) will conduct paleoclimate research in order to better understand the ocean’s circulation and carbon cycle during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM; ~20,000 years ago) and the early phases of the deglaciation (19,000‐13,000 years ago). Benthic carbon isotope data from deep sea sediments will be compiled in an international collaborative project.
Simulations with a global climate model, which includes three‐dimensional ocean circulation, biogeochemical cycles and isotopes will be compared to existing and emerging paleoclimate observations in order to quantitatively reconstruct changes in the ocean’s biological pump, carbon storage and circulation, and to identify and quantify both physical and biogeochemical mechanisms responsible for those changes. The results will be published in peer‐reviewed journals.
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is an internationally recognized leader in the study of the Earth as an integrated system. It operates numerous state-of-the art laboratories and three oceanographic research vessels, the 177-foot ocean-going Oceanus, the 84-foot coastal research vessel Pacific Storm, and the 54-foot coastal research vessel Elakha. The College has an annual budget of more than $50 million, with support coming from the National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and other federal agencies. It has more than 100 faculty, 200 graduate students and 600 undergraduate students. Graduate programs include Master’s and PhD degrees in Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; Geology; and Geography and a Master’s degree in Marine Resource Management. The college has undergraduate programs in Earth Sciences and Environmental Sciences, with several minors and certificate programs.
