*PhD Opportunity in "Ocean and Climate Dynamics" at University of
Seeking motivated doctoral students to join the ocean & climate dynamics
group (https://climate.sas.upenn.edu) in the Department of Earth and
Environmental Sciences at University of Pennsylvania for the 2016-2017
academic year. Accepted students will receive departmental fellowships,
health insurance, conference travel.
*Possible scientific research directions include:*
· The distinct role of Southern Ocean physics in the global climate;
physical connections between the Southern Ocean and tropics via the
atmosphere and the ocean.
· The response of global ocean physics, carbon and oxygen cycles to
climate change, including feedbacks. Developing theories on what controls
the oceanic sink for atmospheric CO2 on various timescales.
· Ocean ecology: past and future responses to a changing physical
climate. Biological-physical interactions in the ocean. Phytoplankton
functional groups from space.
· Including evolutionary concepts and functional traits into
ecological models and coupling them to comprehensive global climate models.
Projects involve running global climate models and analyzing a combination
of model output, in-situ data and satellite datasets. Applicants must be
self-motivated and hard working, with good written and verbal communication
skills. Strong analytical background irrespective of your undergraduate
major (e.g. math, physics, engineering or theoretical ecology coursework)
and programming experience (e.g. Fortran, Matlab, python, unix environment
programming) are desired.
If interested, please contact Dr. Irina Marinov at imarinov at sas.upenn.edu with
your CV, transcripts, interests and written samples, as well as the
relevant science/computational background. Formal PhD application deadline
for our department is January 15, 2016; application needs to be submitted
via the UPenn graduate application portal.
