A postdoctoral research position supervised by Zouhair Lachkar, Marina Levy and Shafer Smith is available at the Center for Prototype Climate Modeling†, an interdisciplinaryresearch unit at New York University Abu Dhabi. The successful candidate will join a small team of scientists engaged in a broad effort to understand and model the circulation and biogeochemical dynamics of the Indian Ocean. The center has access to substantial high performance computing resources, and expertise in high resolution regional biogeochemical modeling. The specific topic of research will depend on the expertise of
the candidate ; current projects are focused on the dynamics of oxygen depletion and denitrification, regional climate change and sensitivity to anthropogenic perturbations, and contrasts between the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, to name a few. A related goal is to improve parameterizations of eddy fluxes of biogeochemical tracers in coarse resolution general circulation models.
