Postdoctoral position on fine-scale ocean currents at IMEDEA

A one and a half postdoctoral position is open in the Oceanography and Climate Change Department at IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB) to join the team working at the FaSt-SWOT campaign. The researcher will work on the characterization of the horizontal and vertical motion associated with ocean fronts in the Balearic Sea with a range of observational oceanographic datasets, including in-situ measurements and satellite data as well as numerical modelling. Deadline for application: 31/01/2023 

The research group of the FaST-SWOT campaign is working for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a 1.5 years project on “Fine-Scale ocean currents from integrated multi-platform experiments and numerical simulations: contribution to the new SWOT satellite mission (FaSt-SWOT)”.

The successful candidate will work on the characterization of the horizontal and vertical motion associated with ocean fronts in the Balearic Sea with a range of observational oceanographic datasets, including in-situ measurements and satellite data as well as numerical modelling. The appointee will be based at IMEDEA (Mallorca) and will carry out research in collaboration with researchers at SOCIB and in other international groups participating in the FaSt-SWOT project.  The project offers scope to investigate ocean fine-scale dynamics and validation of the new SWOT satellite (https://swot.jpl.nasa.gov/). The postdoctoral researcher is expected to publish high quality research outputs and present results at national and international meetings and conferences. The selected candidate will have an opportunity to participate in field-work as well as in educational and outreach activities associated with the project.

The position is a full-time one and the deadline for application is 31/01/2023.
