Jobs at CIGLR

Postdoctoral Fellowship: Ice-Hydrodynamic Modeling

CIGLR is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to lead research that advances understanding of ice-hydrodynamic coupled systems in the Great Lakes and the Arctic Ocean by utilizing state-of-art numerical geophysical models. 

The natural systems involving sea ice and lake ice are highly complex and there are many aspects that are not yet well understood. In order to advance understanding of these systems and improve the model predictions of weather and climate, the fellow is expected to form relevant research hypotheses and test them using the existing ice-ocean/lake models based on the Finite-Volume Community Ocean Model (FVCOM) and the Princeton Ocean Model (POM). The majority of work will involve conducting ice-hydrodynamic simulations for the Great Lakes and Arctic Ocean using the two models and verify the simulation results by comparing with in situ and satellite observations, as well as other model outputs such as those from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP).

The postdoctoral scholar will work with a team of ice-hydrodynamic modelers at CIGLR, and in collaboration with modeling teams at the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) and University of Michigan. The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills, report findings to internal and external audiences in reports and presentations, and lead publications in scientific journals.
