Postdoctoral Research Position in Carbon Cycle Research at UCLA.

The department of Atmospheric Sciences and the Institute of Geophysics and
Planetary Physics (IGPP) at UCLA are inviting applications for a
postdoctoral fellow to work in the Biogeochemistry Group of Prof.
Nicolas Gruber on inverse methods to study the global carbon cycle.  The
work will focus on the estimation of the magnitude and variability of the
exchange of carbon dioxide across the air-sea interface on the basis of
measurements of ocean interior carbon concentrations and of atmospheric
carbondioxide.  Responsibilities of this job include the further
development and application of inverse methods to study air-sea CO2
exchange and other carbon cycle problems, the analysis and interpretation
of results of oceanic and atmospheric tracer transport models, and the
interpretation of oceanic and atmospheric observations relevant to the
carbon cycle.  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.  A strong mathematical
interest with experience in inverse methods is highly desirable.
Experience with numerical models of the ocean or atmosphere is not
necessary but helpful.  The appointment will be made for an initial period
of two years at the PGR VII level, with a starting annual salary of
$40,512.  A third year of funding is available.  Please send a
resume, a statement of research interest, and the names of three
references to Nicolas Gruber, 5853 Slichter Hall, University of
California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90095.  e-mail:
ngruber@igpp.ucla.edu.  Deadline for applications is September 30, 2002.
UCLA is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and encourages
women and minorities to apply.
