http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/Jobs 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<http://www.seadatanet.org/> we developped DIVA<http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/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<http://odv.awi.de/>. It has also been used in the EMODNET<http://www.emodnet-chemistry.eu/> 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<http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/OceanBrowser>) and is now used for discovery services<http://gher-diva.phys.ulg.ac.be/gher-data/>. GHER has been awarded follow-up project SEADATANETII and new EMODNET lots in chemistry and biology EMODNET Assembly groups<http://ec.europa.eu/maritimeaffairs/policy/marine_knowledge_2020/index_en.htm>. 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<http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/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<http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/Previous_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 GHER<http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/GeoHydrodynamics_and_Environment_Research> 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<mailto:email@example.com?subject=Ph.D.%20position%20DIVA>. 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 http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/Jobs.
