Post-Doctoral Position in Modeling, Oregon State University, USA

Post-Doctoral Position in Modeling: Join the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon State University for a 2-year post-doctoral position. We’re seeking a modeler to join our interdisciplinary team studying marine carbon dioxide removal (mCDR) via mineral-alkalized sea water (MASW) addition and its ecosystem impacts as part of the “Electrolysis-driven weathering of basic minerals for long-term ocean buffering and CO2 Reduction” project.

Post-Doctoral Position in physical/biogeochemical and individual based modeling

Designation: Post-Doctoral Fellow

Research Area: Physical/biogeochemical and individual-based modeling

Location: Oregon State University, USA


  • Education: At the start of the postdoc, applicants must have a PhD in a relevant area such as oceanography, biological engineering, mathematics, and experience in circulation (e.g. ROMS, MITgcm, CROCO models and/or biogeochemical numerical modeling in Fortran).
  • Experience: Experience in numerical data analysis (e.g., in MATLAB, R, or Python), and grid generation. Familiarity with carbonate chemistry is preferred.
  • Skills: Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English.

Job Description:

The post-doctoral fellow will expand a coupled circulation/biogeochemical model to include a carbonate-system model. They will perform sensitivity simulations to explore the persistence of perturbations in naturally varying buffering conditions, identify potential ecosystem responses and impacts on CDR efficiency, and guide the design of future in-situ experiments on the Oregon Shelf. Additionally, they will use an individual-based model to assess recruitment of keystone species of California mussels.

How to Apply:

Deadline for applications: May 15, 2024
