Ph.D. position starting 1 July 2013

Our research group is an active partner in several EU projects dealing with 
archiving and distributing marine data. In 
SeaDataNet<> we developped 
DIVA<>, which is now the 
standard analysis tool for producing climatologies for the different regional 
seas around Europe and a plug-in for the well known package Ocean Data 
View<>. It has also been used in the 
EMODNET<> chemistry lot for producing 
statistics on major chemical parameters in the Sea. In addition a interactive 
web-visualisation tool exploiting the climatologies was prepared 
(OceanBrowser<>) and 
is now used for discovery services<>.

GHER has been awarded follow-up project SEADATANETII and new EMODNET lots in 
chemistry and biology EMODNET Assembly 
 The work in these projects will allow for a Ph.D. position with developping 
activities and oceanographic research.

The work will include development of new 
DIVA<> functionalities 
(multivariate analyses, dealing with glider data, correlated observational 
errors, analysis of abundance data ...), maintenance of the code (optimisation, 
dynamic allocations ...) , organisation of 
workshops<> and 
guidance of regional climatology production.

The candidate will also have time to apply DIVA to a scientific question, 
exploiting existing databases and the newly developped functionalities. These 
questions will be defined by the candidate in coherence with our group. 
Possible questions to be tackled are:

  *   Detection of correlation in Levantine Intermediate Water content with the 
North Atlantic Oscillation
  *   Quantification and time evolution of hypoxia conditions in the Black Sea
  *   Deriving abundance distributions of marine species (EMODNET Biology)

The work will be performed in the 
 group with strong interactions with other European groups, leading to 
interesting post-doc perspectives.

The candidate should have experience in statistical data analysis, programming 
under Linux/Unix and some notions in oceanography.

Candidates can send their application via 
email<>. The 
application should include a CV and a short letter of motivation. Applications 
can be send until the position is filled and the announcement removed from
