Postdoctoral Associate, Mississippi State University

Position Function:

The principal function of the postdoc is to contribute to configuring a high-resolution ocean-biogeochemical model for the South Florida region, and use this model to simulate and analyze past and projected regional oceanographic patterns, with an especial focus in five marine ecosystem stressors: ocean acidification, hypoxia, harmful algal blooms (HABs), warming, and eutrophication. The outputs of the ocean-biogeochemical model will be used to characterize stressors impacts on relevant coastal species from the South Florida Shelf and Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS). The postdoc will be based at the NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, Florida. She/he will be part of a multidisciplinary team, which includes researchers at NOAA, Mississippi State University, University of Miami, University of South Florida, Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences, Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, and Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association.
