A Postdoctoral Scholar award will be offered to a new or recent PhD in the fields of oceanography or closely related subjects. We welcome a broad range of potential topics for study, including physical oceanography process studies at all scales, biogeochemical research with practical experimentation, and system modeling with strong integration of data. We seek a candidate who will take advantage of the opportunities and facilities offered at BIOS which include bi-weekly access to the deep ocean, repeat measurements and long-term monitoring of ocean properties, integration of glider observations with traditional ship-based measurements and laboratory access for chemical and biological measurements and experimentation. The award is designed to further the education and training of the applicant with primary emphasis on supporting the individual’s research promise in his/her chosen area of research. A successful postdoctoral term would offer the opportunity to transition to the BIOS resident scientific staff. Applicants should have received their doctoral degree completed by the start date of the position. The recipient will receive full salary support for an eighteen-month period, with possibility of extension depending on performance success. Support is also available for relocation, travel to scientific meetings, equipment and supplies.
