We are seeking an individual with a strong physics background to University team studying the dynamics of internal waves at the European Shelf break. The project is part of the FASTNEt consortium – a collaboration between Bangor University, University of Plymouth, Plymouth Marine Laboratories, Scottish Association of Marine Science, University of Liverpool, and the National Oceanography Centre. The investigations will involve collection and analysis of time series of water column data and the testing of parameterisations being developed for implementation in state-of-the-art numerical models.
The appointee will be directly involved in both the observational work at sea and in the interpretation of observational and modelled time series data. Ideally, he/she will have a PhD in Physical Oceanography, although candidates from other physical science backgrounds will be considered. The appointee will join the Turbulence and Mixing group, which includes Professors John Simpson and Steve Thorpe FRS, based at the School of Ocean Sciences (www.sos.bangor.ac.uk). The School, which is among the largest university Marine Science centres in Europe, has a long tradition of seagoing research and teaching which is facilitated by ready access to the University’s purpose-built research vessel, the Prince Madog.
The successful candidate will be expected to start 1 May, 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter. This post is available for a period of 2.5 years.
Please quote reference number 12-11/160 when applying.
Closing date for applications: 1.00 p.m. Friday 23 March, 2012.
