The University of Michigan seeks a postdoctoral scholar supervised by Prof. Yulin Pan (Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, https://sites.google.com/umich.edu/fpel) and co-supervised by Prof. Brian Arbic (Department of Earth and Environmental Science, https://arbic.earth.lsa.umich.edu/). The successful applicant will work on the understanding of energy cascade of internal gravity waves (IGWs), fine-scale parameterization and the ocean mixing process. Specifically, the successful applicant will have freedom to choose tasks including wave turbulence theory of IGWs, high-resolution regional models and diagnosis, and machine learning for parameterization. The successful applicant will also have opportunities to work with other renowned physicists and oceanographers as collaborators to this project.
The successful applicant is expected to have a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, physics, oceanography, fluid dynamics and other related fields. Expertise in nonlinear waves and dynamics, turbulence theory, ocean models and machine learning are preferred. This position is funded by NSF for three years, and will become available in the next few months. Interested applicant can directly contact Prof. Yulin Pan at email@example.com with a CV and 1-3 representative publications.
