Postdoctoral Research Associate
Lagrangian/ biogeochemical ocean modeling and satellite data analysis
Department of Earth Sciences
Boston University


We are seeking a postdoctoral associate, starting September 2008, for studying phytoplankton growth and net community production from satellite ocean color data. We aim to use Lagrangian modeling to combine satellite (MODIS) data with ocean circulation model fields. Computational modeling and analysis skills, as well as some knowledge of ocean physics and biogeochemistry are a plus. This NASA-sponsored project is collaborative with the University of New Hampshire (Dr. Joseph Salisbury joe.salisbury@unh.edu) and provides 18 months of postdoctoral support. Please contact Amala Mahadevan (amala@bu.edu) if interested.
