GLIN==> Announcement for Postdoctoral Physical Limnologist at NOAA/GLERL



Title: Announcement for Postdoctoral Physical Limnologist at
Postdoctoral Physical Limnologist.  NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) in Ann Arbor, MI has an opening for a National Research Council (NRC) Research Associate position in Physical Limnology, with a special emphasis on investigation of wave-induced resuspension and long term transport of fine grained sedimentary material in the Great Lakes. Candidates will develop a research proposal in collaboration with a GLERL scientist based on results from the recent Episodic Events - Great Lakes Experiment (EEGLE - http:www.glerl.noaa.gov/eegle) in Lake Michigan. Proposals involving theoretical studies, numerical modeling, and process studies in waves and/or sediment dynamics are encouraged. The successful proposal will build on simulations of episodic resuspension events in Lake Michigan carried out in the EEGLE project and extend them to investigate the critical processes responsible for long term sediment transport and deposition in large lakes and coastal regions. Applicants for the postdoctoral research associate position should have a recent Ph.D. in physical oceanography or a related field with a strong emphasis on wave and/or sediment dynamics and transport processes. The NRC appointment is for one year with a second year extension funded by GLERL, assuming satisfactory performance. There is also a provision for applications from a senior research associate (Ph.D. for more than five years); this appointment is for one year. More information about the NRC Research Associateship program, including application details, is available at: http:www4.nationalacademies.org/pga/rap.nsf. Deadline for the application is January 15. For further information at GLERL contact David Schwab (734-741-2120, schwab@glerl.noaa.gov).
