A funded MASc position is available in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Professor Andrea Scott (ka3scott@uwaterloo.ca). The project objective is to assimilate data from ocean gliders into a model of the North Atlantic. The work will be carried out as part of a larger research network VITALS (Ventilation, Interactions and Transports Across the Labrador Sea) http://knossos.eas.ualberta.ca/vitals/. The research network will answer fundamental questions about exchanges of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and heat between the atmosphere and the Labrador Sea, in order to improve our understanding of deep convection. The project will involve close collaboration between researchers at the University of Waterloo, McGill University, Memorial University and the University of Alberta.

 

Interested applicants should send their CV, academic transcripts and contact details for two references to ka3scott@uwaterloo.ca. Students should have previous degree in Engineering or Oceanography or Applied Mathematics and experience with one of C/C++ Fortran or Python. Any questions regarding the project can be directed to ka3scott@uwaterloo.ca. Anticipated start date is September 2015, or sooner.
