1. Understanding freshwater impact on the North Atlantic in a climate-change scenario using a basin-scale Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS).
2. Further development of a data-assimilative operational forecast system for the western North Atlantic using the Harvard Ocean Predictions System (HOPS).
3. Development and implementation of a real-time, feature-oriented regional modeling system for the coastal regions off northern and southern Brazil.

A bachelor’s or master’s degree in oceanography, physics, engineering, computer sciences, applied mathematics or related field is required. Applicants should have strong mathematical and computer skills and some background in physical sciences. Review of applications is ongoing and will continue until the position is filled. Enrollment beginning spring or fall 2009 is expected.
