Job 1: The Department of Oceanography at the Naval Postgraduate School invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of ocean acoustics and acoustical oceanography. It is intended that appointments will be made at the assistant/associate professor level although exceptionally qualified appointments at the full professor level may be considered. A doctoral degree in Physical Oceanography, Ocean Engineering, Applied Ocean Physics or related fields is required, along with substantial evidence of potential for excellence in both teaching and research.
Consideration will be given to applicants with the ability or potential to establish a high-quality, externally funded research program that augments and enhances the existing ocean acoustic research programs of the department. Existing programs include coupled acoustic and ocean observations, data analysis, modeling and prediction. Excellent research facilities and assets are available at NPS including a local oceanographic research vessel, acoustic tomography equipment, underwater listening arrays, and hydrographic equipment. Opportunities exist and are encouraged for collaboration with other nearby oceanographic institutions.
Job 2: The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs is recruiting a scientist for a position at the National Ice Center (NIC), located in Suitland, MD. The NIC mission is to provide near real time support to vessels operating in ice-infested waters and to synoptically monitor the ice cover of the polar seas and the Great Lakes. The NIC web page (http:\\www.natice.noaa.gov and http:\\science.natice.noaa.gov) illustrates some NIC products. The objective of the program is to bridge the operational ice analysis performed at the NIC with the work performed in the ice research community.
The NIC Science Department currently works in a Linux and Windows development environment. The program offers up to a three year visiting research appointment, reviewed annually. The applicant must have a strong working knowledge of ice physics, remote sensing and/or ice modeling, and a willingness to develop, test and validate new algorithms. Preference will be given to applicants with prior data assimilation experience.
