PhD GRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY IN " OCEAN BIOGEOCHEMISTRY AND CLIMATE CHANGE"
Department of Earth and Environmental Science, University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Marinov is seeking a motivated doctoral student to join her ocean modeling group at Penn.
Possible scientific research directions include
- Seasonal to interdecadal variability of the physical climate and links with ocean biogeochemistry and ocean ecology on a global scale
- Impact of climate change on ocean nutrients, carbon cycle 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 .
- Including evolutionary concepts into ecological models and coupling them to comprehensive global climate models.
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 email@example.com
