NOAA/Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, Research Oceanographer Position, GS14

The Ocean Climate Research Division (OCRD) of NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) in Seattle, WA is seeking a qualified candidate for a Principal Investigator position, with expertise in the area of managing and directing research related to chemical oceanographic processes and of interdisciplinary teams of scientists in the pursuit of a common goal. NOAA/PMEL is part of the US Department of Commerce. PMEL's mission is to carryout out interdisciplinary scientific investigations in oceanography and atmospheric sciences, and is engaged in a broad range of studies involving ocean carbon research. The position is a research scientist who will provide scientific and technical leadership within PMEL's Coastal Carbon Processes Program, interacting with modelers and observationalists dedicated to the study of the carbon system. The candidate is expected to have an in-depth understanding of carbon measuring systems to enable the Laboratory to meet its goals for maintaining our ocean carbon observing systems as part of NOAA's Global Carbon Cycle (GCC) research program in the coastal waters around North America. He/She participates in conducting systematic research on the sources and sinks for anthropogenic carbon dioxide in the coastal oceans and investigates long range and short term problems, recommends solutions for problems of unusual difficulty related to oceanography, and presents results at national and international scientific meetings. This work must demonstrate specialized experience leading scientific expeditions devoted to interdisciplinary studies of the carbon system in the coastal oceans and skill working with large data sets to test biogeochemical models of oceanic processes. A record of publications in the refereed literature and demonstrated capability of developing funded research programs are essential.
