Positions available:

Postdoctoral Researcher.  

Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP), University of
California, Los Angeles.  The biogeochemistry group is seeking a
post-doctoral researcher to develop, perform and analyze model studies of
ocean biogeochemical processes.  We are particularly interested in
investigating the response of ocean ecosystem and biogeochemistry to a
deliberate fertilization by iron to stimulate phytoplankton growth and to
enhance the oceanic uptake of anthropogenic CO2.  This position is part of
a broader effort to study the possibility and consequences of
anthropogenic CO2 sequestration by the ocean.  The successful candidate
will work under the direction of Prof. Nicolas Gruber and in collaboration
with other faculty at UCLA and Princeton University. Candidates must
possess a Ph.D. in earth, applied math, physical, biological, or chemical
sciences.  Training in oceanic and/or atmospheric sciences is strongly
preferred.  Experience with numerical models of the ocean or atmosphere
and UNIX/LINUX computing environments is desirable.  Salary will be
commensurate with experience.  Send letter and resume with two references
to Prof.  Nicolas Gruber, 5853 Slichter Hall, IGPP, University of
California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90095.  e-mail: 
ngruber@igpp.ucla.edu.  Deadline for applications is October 31, 2000. 
UCLA is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and encourages
women and minorities to apply. 


Scientific Programmer/Analyst. 

The Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at the University
of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is searching for a scientific
programmer/analyst to provide computing and visualization support for the
Biogeochemistry group headed by Prof. Nicolas Gruber and to provide basic
system support for the Institute.  The successful candidate will primarily
work on the design, development and use of numerical models for ocean
biogeochemical processes, including the statistical and graphical analysis
of their solutions.  He will also work on the development and maintenance
of scientific programs and software. Other duties will include maintaining
the group's and the institute's computing systems.  The preferred
candidate will have a B.S. or higher degree in the computer or physical
sciences, extensive experience with various computer languages (especially
Fortran) and good working knowledge of the UNIX or LINUX operating
systems.  Experience in numerical modeling as well as in the management of
large data sets is desirable.  Salary range is $3842-6919, commensurate
