The Naval Research Laboratory has an opening for a post-doctorate researcher in physical oceanography, focusing on the evolution and impacts of submesoscale eddies within high resolution ocean model systems. Postdocs working on this project will have the ability to focus on a number of areas: (1) performing and analyzing high-resolution (250 to 500 m horizontal) hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic ocean model simulations that resolve submesoscale eddies; (2) developing techniques to evaluate and analyze the local and remote impacts of small-scale features within the surrounding ocean environment (both dynamically and thermodynamically); (3) investigating and characterizing submesoscale eddy, small-scale, and mesoscale variability (seasonal, subseasonal) of the ocean environment; and (4) analyzing and utilizing remote sensing and in situ observations of small-scale ocean features.
