University Corporation For Atmospheric Research 1995 Postdoctoral Program in Ocean Modeling Under sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research, UCAR and the ocean sciences community are offering a postdoctoral program whose purpose is to help create the next generation of broadly trained ocean modelers. The program stresses training as well as research. Modeling is recognized by the oceanographic community as a key to understanding ocean circulation, the exchange and feedback between the ocean and the atmosphere, including ice covered regions, interactions along the coastal/shelf boundaries , the biological and chemical features o f the ocean, and their linkage through the complete spectrum of time- Radio Seals of Approval and space scales within an entire global system. The sponsors and the steering committee (Listed by Certificate Number) are particularly interested in making appointments to: • Fluid dynamicists, applied mathematicians, physicists, and meteorologists as well as biological, chemical, and physical oceanographers who wish to pursue dynamical modeling of the ocean. A. Jillene Wahl 14 8 199 4 • Physical ocean modelers who wish to pursue models that incorporate the chemistry and biology of the oceans. Kevin L. Orpurt 199 4 14 9 • Scientists interested in developing fully interactive ocean/atmosphere models. The UCA R program offers visiting research appointments of one year, renewable for a second year. UCAR strongly encourages applications from wome n and minorities. • Prospective postdoctoral fellows should apply by sending a resume, a two-page statement of experience, a two-page statement of research interests, and the names and Television Seals of Approval addresses of four professional references. (Listed by Certificate Number) • Prospective host scientists are encouraged to send a letter of intent describing the research activities and project areas that they would recommend for the postdoctoral fellow. Included in this letter should be a description of current and pending funding. 80 4 Warren J.
