Local recruitment: Postdoc on drivers of regional and global sea level change

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Pasadena, CA, USA 🇺🇸

Organization: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Reference Code: 0128-NPP-MAR23-JPL-EarthSci

Application Deadline: 3/1/2023 6:00:00 PM Eastern Time Zone

Description

This research opportunity aims to investigate on of the most important impacts of a changing climate: global and regional sea level variations. By making use of modern satellite and in-situ geodetic observations from satellite altimeters, time-variable gravity, GPS stations, surface deformation observations, as well as auxiliary information from ocean models and atmospheric data sets, I invite research projects that improve our knowledge and understanding of physical processes governing large-scale global ocean circulation, and the interaction with the atmosphere and terrestrial water storage components (including land ice), with a particular emphasis on the impacts on sea level. Of particular interest are intra-annual to decadal time scales and associated modes of variability (ENSO, PDO, NAO etc.). Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in oceanography or related fields, and prior work experience with satellite data sets (Jason 1 / 2, GRACE, InSAR etc.) and/or ocean model simulations is recommended.
