Overview: Los Alamos National Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in science and engineering on behalf of national security. The postdoc positions are within the Climate, Ocean and Sea-Ice Modeling (COSIM) group which develops advanced ocean and ice models for the study of climate and climate change.

Detailed Description: The COSIM group seeks two postdocs to contribute to the development of a next-generation global ocean model, MPAS-Ocean. MPAS-Ocean is a multiscale ocean model intended for the study of ocean processes ranging from submesoscale to global scales of motion. Many research opportunities exist within the MPAS-Ocean activity for the development, evaluation and application of this novel approach to global ocean modeling.

Of particular interest are the following: development and evaluation of a scale-adaptive parameterization for mesoscale ocean eddies, development and evaluation of the generalized vertical coordinate currently used in MPAS-Ocean, development of high-order transport schemes, and evaluation of MPAS-Ocean within a coupled climate system model.

Minimum Job Requirements: Experience and knowledge related to the design, construction and evaluation of computational models. Software skills including expertise in high-performance computing languages (e.g. Fortran, C, C++) and knowledge of a scripting framework (e.g. Python, MATLAB, NCL). A solid educational foundation in the following areas: numerical methods, fluid dynamics and applied math.

Desired Skills: The successful candidate will have demonstrated scientific excellence as evidenced by submission and publication of authored publications in refereed journals.

Education: A Ph.D. in physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences, computational physics, applied math or closely related field.

To Apply: Send a curriculum vitae, digitized copies of transcripts, names of three references, a cover letter detailing qualifications and research interests, and a 1-2 page research proposal to Please include “Ocean Modeling Postdoc” in the subject line. Applications will be reviewed as received with the intent of filling the positions before July 15, 2013.
