Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow position to work on the project “Stirring at the Walls – A dynamical boundary model for the ocean”. This work forms part of a joint NERC-NSF funded project between Professor Ted Johnson at University College London and Professor William Dewar of Florida State University on boundary models for the ocean. The project will investigate the hypothesis that there is a gap between the very high spatial and temporal resolution required in global ocean models to accurately resolve the flow near ocean boundaries and the lower resolution in both space and time required to resolve the motion of the ocean interior. The aim is to produce a dynamical boundary model that can exploit this gap to allow more accurate simulations at lower computational cost while simultaneously increasing our knowledge of boundary mixing processes.
Interest and research experience in at least some of the following areas: the theory of nonlinear wave dynamics, the numerical treatment of hyperbolic equations, asymptotic analysis of geophysical equations, global ocean circulation models.
