The Department of Applied Mathematics is seeking a PostDoctoral Research Associate. Their work will be a component of a high profile Climate Process Team (CPT) on Ocean Transport and Eddy Energy involving multiple institutions including New York University (NYU), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Princeton, the University of Chicago, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab (GFDL) among others. The role of the CU team is to assess the accuracy of an existing 2D eddy energy equation and to develop improved parameterizations of eddy energy transport and of energy dissipation in the eddy energy equation. The CU postdoc will work closely with members of NCAR's Ocean Section and Malte Jansen at the University of Chicago. The research will include mathematical modeling, diagnostic analysis of simulation results, and simulations in idealized and comprehensive global ocean models. The work will be very collaborative and involve some travel for project workshops, frequent virtual meetings, and regular travel between Colorado and NYU to coordinate with the lead PI, Laure Zanna, and the full Climate Process Team.
