Job opening The College of Marine Science, University of South Florida

The College of Marine Science, University of South Florida, seeks a PhD level Research Associate in coastal
ocean circulation modeling and analyses. Successful candidates will engage in a coordinated program of
observations and models toward understanding and forecasting the circulation of the west Florida continental
shelf (WFS) and the interactions that link the estuarine, coastal, and deep-ocean environments. Presently
maintained are automated, daily, nowcast/forecast modeling systems for the circulation on west Florida
continental shelf, inclusive of its major estuaries, and a higher resolution version for the greater Tampa Bay
region. Both of these modeling systems employ nesting of the Finite Volume Community Ocean Model
(FVCOM) in the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM). These modeling systems are in coordination
with an array of in-situ observations. We are interested in further improvements to these systems, plus the
addition of attributes such as wave-current interactions, sediment transport, primary productivity and data
assimilation.
Successful candidates will work as part of a coordinated team within the CMS-USF Ocean Circulation Lab in
St. Petersburg, FL (see http://ocgweb.marine.usf.edu and http://comps.marine.usf.edu for programmatic
examples).
