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:



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".
