Position as Ocean Modeler

About us

The Nansen Centre is an independent non-profit research foundation conducting multidisciplinary research with a focus on the marine environment, cryosphere and atmosphere, where scientific activities are closely integrated with innovation and service development. The Arctic is one of our main areas of attention. NERSC takes an active part in training and capacity building for students and young scientists, as well as dissemination to stakeholders in public and private sector and society in general. We have an international workplace with some 70 employees from 28 nations.

 

The vacant position

The Nansen Centre has a vacant 100% temporary position as ocean modeler/oceanographer for a duration of two years, with possibility for permanent employment. 

The position is linked to several ongoing research projects focusing on operational oceanography and research applied to the North Atlantic and Arctic. The scientist is expected to conduct original, independent and collaborative research toward the development of HYCOM in connection to 

the sea ice and ecosystem modeling activities at NERSC and will work in close collaboration with experts in ecosystem modeling, sea ice modeling and data assimilation. Together, the team has developed the TOPAZ system, the official Arctic component of the Copernicus Marine Services, and has established a leading European position for operational ocean forecasting in the Arctic and Nordic Seas. The TOPAZ system is built around the HYCOM ocean model, which has been used at NERSC for more than 15years and constitutes the core of our ocean modeling and data assimilation activities. The model system is shared with the international Nansen Centers in P.R. China and South Africa, who maintain regional configurations, running both with and without data assimilation. 

The work will be carried within the Ocean modelling research group at the centre, and in particular for operational applications in collaboration with the Data assimilation research group.

TRIATLAS: South and Tropical Atlantic - climate-based marine ecosystem prediction for sustainable management (TRIATLAS)

Achieve skillfull south and Tropical Atlantic marine ecosystems prediction

Main Objective: To assess the status of the South and Tropical Atlantic marine ecosystem and develop a framework for predicting its future changes, from months to decades, by combining ecosystem observations, climate-based ecosystem prediction and information on future socio-economic and ecosystem service changes, and thus to contribute to the sustainable management of human activities in the Atlantic Ocean as a whole.

TRIATLAS has the following specific objectives (SO):

Agulhas Current meanders facilitate shelf-slope exchange on the Eastern Agulhas Bank

Agulhas Current meanders are some of the largest events that take place in the Agulhas Current system. They have a large impact on the shelf circulation and are important for the life cycle of several marine species. In an article published in Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans two ocean models, as well as satellite observations, are used to examine how meander events change the way in which the Agulhas Current interacts with the continental shelf of southeast Africa.
