Opportunities

Graduate Students/Research Assistants

Opportunities for graduate (MS, PhD) work involving coastal ocean observing and modeling research are available. The duties of the RA include visualization and analysis of oceanographic data sets, performing model simulations and diagnosis, and preparing results for written reports and journal publication. Participation in ocean cruises is a possibility.

The ideal applicant holds a B.S. in oceanography, ocean sciences, physics, or a related field. The successful candidate must have the ability to work well independently and as part of a team, and have strong communication skills, both verbal and written. Preferred candidates will have mathematical and computational skills and familiarity with scientific programming (e.g., Fortran) and scripting (Perl, Python, NCL, Matlab). Experience in ocean modeling, marine ecosystem simulations, and/or data assimilation is desirable.

Interested individuals may contact OOMG at any time. Please e-mail rhe [at] ncsu [dot] edu with your interests, qualifications, and CV.

Research Associates

Post-doctoral researchers interested in joining OOMG may contact us to discuss opportunities. Topics we focus on include:

  • coastal circulation dynamics, modeling, and data assimilation
  • marine ecosystem dynamics and modeling

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in physical oceanography, ocean engineering, marine ecosystems, or a related science. The successful candidate has the ability to work well independently and as part of a team, and has strong communication skills, both verbal and written. Preferred candidates will have experience with advanced ocean modeling, mathematical, and computational skills. Candidates should be motivated to drive new developments in ocean circulation modeling, marine ecosystems simulations, and/or data assimilation. Demonstrated proficiency in running complex model codes on high-performance computers, performing statistical analyses, and scientific programming (e.g., Fortran) and scripting (Perl, Python, NCL, Matlab) is greatly appreciated. The successful candidate will publish scientific articles and contribute to writing new funding proposals. Participation in ocean cruises is a possibility.
