Research Associate in geophysical fluid dynamics

Department of Mathematics

Location: South Kensington, London

Salary Range: £37,486 - £46,499 p.a.*

Contract: Full time, Fixed Term

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London. The position is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council and will involve the study of a problem related to the analysis of turbulent eddy diffusion induced by geostrophic turbulence and the development of subsequent turbulent parameterization with stochastic eddy diffusivity tensor. The concrete problem(s) will be determined after discussion with the successful candidate. Strong background in geophysical fluid dynamics, applied math and scientific computing is required. The project will involve close research collaboration with the co-funded team from the University of Miami (USA).

Duties and Responsibilities

The project will involve working closely with Dr Pavel Berloff and the geophysical fluid dynamics group at the Imperial College on various aspects of material transport induced by geophysical and, more specifically, oceanic mesoscale turbulence. The project involves mathematical modelling, high-performance computing, and in-depth Eulerian and Lagrangian analyses of the solutions. Ability to develop mathematical algorithms and understand turbulent processes will be essential.

Essential Requirements

• A PhD (or equivalent) in Applied Mathematics or closely related field • Experience with geophysical fluid dynamics • Clear evidence of outstanding promise and originality in research, with a good publication record, commensurate with career stage • A strong background in fluid dynamics and mathematics of planet Earth • A strong background in scientific computing • Excellent written communication skills and the ability to write clearly and succinctly for publication • Ability to identify, develop and apply new concepts, techniques and methods Further Information

The position is fixed term for 25 months. The expected start date is 1 September 2019 or soon thereafter.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £34,397 - £37,486 per annum.
