Please forward to all interested. thank you.
*PhD Graduate Research Opportunities in "Oceanography and Climate
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Pennsylvania,
*https://climate.sas.upenn.edu <https://climate.sas.upenn.edu> *
I am seeking one or two motivated doctoral students to join my
ocean/climate modeling group at UPenn. Possible scientific research
- The role of the Southern Ocean physics in the global energy and carbon
- Impact of climate change on ocean physics, biogeochemistry (nutrients,
carbon, oxygen) and ecology. How do changes in ocean physics, ecology and
chemistry affect the sink for atmospheric CO2 and how will decadal to
millenial changes in that sink affect in turn climate?
- Development of theoretical understanding on what controls the oceanic
sink for atmospheric CO2.
- Ecological modeling: Including evolutionary concepts and functional
traits into ecological models and coupling them to comprehensive global
- Satellite data analysis of ocean physics and biology
Applicants must be self-motivated and hard working, with good written and
verbal communication skills. A strong background in either physics,
chemistry, oceanography, or atmospheric science is ideal. Past programming
experience under the Linux environment (especially programming in Fortran
and Matlab) is highly desirable.
If interested please contact Dr. Irina Marinov at imarinov at sas.upenn.edu
Full applications for the graduate program in the Earth and Environmental
Science Department are due December 15th. Please include in your
application a CV, transcripts, general GRE scores, writing samples, and an
essay detailing your specific interests in this field, as well as your
relevant science and computational experience.
