Responsibilities:

  • Obtain, process, and document existing and new datasets, including in situ and satellite data, global and regional model simulations, and ocean reanalyses (which combines observations with model fields).
  • Evaluate data quality and the accuracy of ocean model simulations.
  • Develop software to analyze and visualize different types of data using modern programming languages.
  • Contribute to publications in scientific journals and conference presentations.

Required:

  • BS degree in Oceanography, Atmospheric Science or a related field, AND at least two years of relevant experience or a MS or PhD in Oceanography, Atmospheric Science or a related field.
