Community (#6) - [Job] 3 x Postdoctoral Researcher Vacancies in Ocean Modelling | Closing 27 Feb. 2018 (#33) - Message List
Below are details regarding three open positions for Postdoctoral Researchers in Ocean Modelling within the Marine Institute, Ireland. Three individual contracts will be issued for maximum durations of up to 24 months, 33 months and 47 months. Please see attached a job description outlining the profiles for these vacancies.
Summary of the Roles:
The successful candidates will work within the Oceanographic Services team as Postdoctoral Researchers, with the main responsibility for delivering modelling products and services under the following projects:
- Horizon 2020 project TAPAS (Tools for Assessment and Planning of Aquaculture Sustainability)
- Interreg Atlantic Area iFADO (Innovation in the Framework of the Atlantic Deep Ocean)
- Interreg Atlantic Area MyCOAST (Coordinated Atlantic Coastal Operational Oceanographic Observatory)
- Interreg Atlantic Area CleanAtlantic (Tackling marine litter in the Atlantic Area)
The successful candidates will be responsible for providing numerical modelling for the above projects and will work closely with international partners. Specifically, the candidates will contribute to the development of the most appropriate near field modelling procedures for marine aquaculture sustainability, based on hydrodynamic, biogeochemical and shellfish modelling. The candidates will develop regional and coastal scale hydrodynamic models for the purpose of supporting the delivery of Marine Strategy Framework Directive descriptors. The candidates will develop coastal scale models and model-based tools, such as lagrangian tools for search and rescue application and other. The candidates will develop lagrangian tools for marine litter tracking. Preparation of the reports and relevant documentation following strict deadlines and formats will also be part of the role. The candidates will also be expected to carry out other modelling duties within the modelling team as required.
