[Met-jobs] PhD student and postdoc positions available for ocean bubble projects, University of Southampton

Postdoc job:

As a Research Fellow you will design, build and deploy a novel camera for the 
detection of bubbles in the ocean. The main design challenges will be the 
construction of a novel lighting system and the development of appropriate 
image processing techniques.  You will have a PhD in engineering or physics, be 
able to build electronic hardware interfaces and be proficient in programming 
languages such as C and MATLAB. In addition, experience of instrument 
development, knowledge of image processing techniques would be advantageous.  
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher to 
make a direct contribution to ocean research.    Project Principle 
Investigators:  Steve Gunn & Helen Czerski.

PhD student:

We seek a PhD student to develop a computer model describing the effect of 
ocean bubbles on the exchange of gas and particles between the atmosphere and 
the ocean. We have an existing model that predicts the fluxes of several 
different gases caused by a bubble plume, and we would like develop this 
further in order to include surfactant-coated bubbles, a better bubble 
injection scheme, and the production of aerosol particles. Experimental data 
will be collected during a research cruise in the North Atlantic (which the 
successful applicant would be able to join if they wanted), and the final part 
of the project will be to carry out a comparison of this data with the model 
predictions. The ideal candidate would have a background in physics or computer 
science, and an interest in the ocean (although previous experience in this 
area is not necessary). The student will be joining a team with a mixture of 
theoretical, laboratory and ocean-measurement expertise, and this is a great 
opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary environment with an important 
practical application.    Project Principle Investigators:  Helen Czerski & Tim
