Postdoc - Coastal Oceanography and Engineering

A postdoctoral fellowship is available working in the area of Environmental Fluid Dynamics and Oceanography. Position will include helping start a new lab, field research, ecosystem modeling,and opportunities to teach interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate courses in engineering and marine science. Primary focus of research can be either 1) coastal ocean Processes, or 2) development of front parameterized ecosystem model. Relatively frequent travel is required to coastal areas of Georgia, Baja California, and the Monterey Bay. The position will have extensive opportunity to work with a team of engineers, oceanographers, marine ecologists, social scientists, economists, and policy makers.
