Forwwarded from CLIMLIST... Two PhD positions open in my theoretical oceanography/geophysical fluid dynamics group. Both positions are in submesoscale dynamics in the ocean. Possible topics are: - extending dynamical system tools to identify Lagrangian coherent structure to three dimensions and application to the oceanic mixed layer - study of submesoscale dynamics making use of the semigeostrophic and surface semi-geostrophic approximations, and comparison with other approximations and simulations/data - mixing in the ocean interior due to mixed layer instabilities: effects of diurnal and seasonal cycles, possibility to parameterize the mixing, etc Some good knowledge in geophysical fluid dynamics and/or dynamical systems would be desirable. The official announcements, with instructions on how to apply are here: <http://www.verwaltung.uni-hamburg.de/stellenangebote/wissmit/Geoscience_31-01-2013.pdf> <http://www.verwaltung.uni-hamburg.de/stellenangebote/wissmit/Geoscience_31-01-13.pdf> A note on the length of the contracts: - one position is advertised as expiring on September 30, 2015. The position is however granted for 3 full years. - one position is advertised as 24 months long. Additional 12 months will be paid under the SFB proposal "Below the Rossby radius". -- Gualtiero Badin Junior Professor Institute of Oceanography University of Hamburg http://www.liv.ac.uk/~gualti
