Seeking Expression of Interest from postdoctoral researchers interested in Climate/Ocean Physics and Machine Learning in the Mathematics department at NYU Courant.

Please apply via Interfolio via this link:

This position is for postdoctoral researchers and does not include teaching responsibilities.  

NYU Courant's Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science is seeking outstanding researchers with strong physical insight and analytical ability to join the research group of Prof. Laure Zanna (  Some of our recent work includes: ocean dynamics and climate change, air-sea interactions, predictability in mid-latitudes and stochastic parameterizations of turbulent ocean processes. We are primarily interested in researchers who can incorporate ideas and tools from machine learning to solve fundamental problems in ocean/climate dynamics and modeling.

The possible project topics include: assessing the predictability of climate phenomena, improving subgrid-scale parameterizations, the inference of climate variables/processes from sparse data (e.g. paleoproxy or satellite data), uncertainty quantification to ensemble simulations. The earliest that this position will begin is September 2019. These positions are full time appointments initially for one year and renewable conditional on satisfactory performance and funding.

The Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science is a unit of the department of Mathematics, within the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. NYU Courant is a highly respected institute for cutting-edge research and advanced training in applied mathematics and computer science. NYU Courant has strong links with the NYU Center for Data Science (CDS), home for the NYU Moore-Sloan Data Science Environment ( NYU Courant is in the very heart of the world's leading artistic and financial center in downtown Manhattan. 

The review of applications will start July 1 2019 and will continue until the positions are filled.


Completion of Ph.D. in physical, mathematical, computational science or related disciplines by the start date. 

Application Instructions. Please follow instructions in the Interfolio application and upload the following documents:

A brief cover letter (no more than (1) one page)

Your Curriculum Vitae with a list of publications

Your research statement (up to 2 pages). The statement must include your research to date and a research proposal for the current position. All proposals should be motivated by key scientific questions in climate/ocean dynamics and broadly fit within the research interests of the group (

Three (3) reference letters

One (1) representative publication
