Track 1:Physical Oceanography
Physical oceanography is the study of physical conditions and physical processes within the ocean, especially the motions and physical properties of ocean waters. Energy for the ocean circulation (and for the atmospheric circulation) comes from solar radiation and gravitational energy from the sun and moon. Oceanic currents are largely driven by the surface wind stress; hence the large-scale atmospheric circulation is important to understanding the ocean circulation. This addresses mainly on Observation, modeling coastal and open – ocean processes, Climate Change in the Coastal Ocean, Estuarine and coastal sedimentary processes, Ecosystems and climate change applications.
Track 1-1Physical oceanography: observation, modeling coastal and open- ocean processes
Track 1-2Ecosystems and climate change applications
Track 1-3Sub-mesoscale processes and internal waves
Track 1-4Climate change in the coastal ocean

Post-Doc in Marine Remote Sensing in USA:

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences – East Boothbay, ME (EUA)

Applications are being accepted for a Postdoctoral Research position at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences working with Dr. William Balch, beginning 17 November, 2014,or as soon as possible thereafter.

The primary goal of the NASA-funded research is to advance studies of suspended particulate inorganic carbon (calcium carbonate) associated with measurements by the VIIRS instrument [aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite platform]. The work may include, but is not necessarily limited to:

Making improvements to the VIIRS PIC algorithm based on historical ship validation data and reducing errors in associated algorithm parameters
Performing new VIRRS PIC algorithm validation by participating in a 1-2 Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) cruises between the U.K. and Punta Arenas, Chile. This work will provide collection/analysis of other variables: chlorophyll concentration and particulate organic carbon (POC), inherent optical properties (e.g. particle absorption and scattering) and apparent optical properties, to assess their potential as environmental-quality or climate-quality data records. The ship time requires that the candidate is in excellent health, can work at sea for extended periods (45-50 days) and be physically able to lift at least 50 lbs.
Providing continuity of the PIC science data products from the EOS era to the Suomi NPP era (and ultimately to the JPSS and PACE eras). Critical in this last goal is defining the error budgets of the VIIRS PIC algorithm for comparison to the same product derived from MODIS, plus production of an updated “algorithm theoretical basis document”).

Areas of specialization should include optical and biological oceanography with knowledge of ocean color remote sensing. Strong background in hydrological optics and algorithm derivation would be ideal. Strong oral and written communication skills are also critical. This is a full time, 12-month position, with a funding period of 3 years (pending annual review). Candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in optical or biological oceanography or a related discipline by the start date.

Applicants 
should send their CV, brief description of research interests and contact information for 3 references to jobs@bigelow.org. Please reference Job#PD-2014-3 in the subject line. Questions regarding this position can be addressed to Dr. William Balch (bbalch@bigelow.org) but applications must be submitted through the Bigelow Jobs web link above. Application review will begin after10/17/14. Bigelow Laboratory is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
