Employment Announcements

The successful applicant for this position will conduct research into the dynamics and numerical modeling of internal tides and other oceanic phenomena in collaboration with research groups at the University of Michigan, Florida State University, and the Oceans and Cryosphere Division of NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA-GFDL). The incumbent will conduct fundamental research into the feasibility of using the Modular Ocean Model version 6 (MOM6) as the dynamical core of near-real-time operational ocean forecast systems to be used by agencies such as NOAA and the U.S. Navy.

Location : This position will be located at the University of Michigan with the possibility to be located at Florida State University or at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, NJ by mutual arrangement.

Deadline:

This position will be posted until a sufficient number of candidates apply.

This position will focus on development of tidal datum transformations in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands for NOAA’s VDatum vertical datum transformation project.

Location : This position is located in the Coast Survey Development Laboratory of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey in Silver Spring, MD.

Deadline:

This position will be posted until a sufficient number of candidates apply.

This position will focus on accelerating improvements in running ensemble storm surge simulations that are optimally representative of hurricane track uncertainty. One of the NOAA’s storm surge models is the ADCIRC hydrodynamic model, which is currently being used for the Hurricane Surge On-demand Forecast System (HSOFS).

Location : This position is located in the Coast Survey Development Laboratory of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey in Silver Spring, MD.

Deadline:

This position will be posted until a sufficient number of candidates apply.

This position will focus on accelerating NOAA’s storm surge model capabilities by developing an operational coupled hydrodynamic and wave modeling system.

Location : This position is located in the Coast Survey Development Laboratory of NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey in Silver Spring, MD.

Deadline:

This position will be posted until a sufficient number of candidates apply.

The incumbent will develop a repeatable analytical strategy for continuous evaluation of the US Geological Survey (USGS) Water Mission Area (WMA) supply chain, including mechanisms to determine which parts of the chain can be improved to deliver products more quickly and efficiently to the field and to track/inventory the products at field locations. This is a full-time, position funded through July, 2021 with the potential for extension.

Location:  The location is flexible.

Deadline:

This position will be posted until a sufficient number of candidates apply.
