Graduate Study Opportunities in Atmosphere/Ocean Physics at the University of 
Toronto

This is to announce the availability, at the Department of Physics in the 
University of Toronto, Canada, of several graduate research opportunities in 
Atmosphere/Ocean Physics. Our Department is home to one of the world’s foremost 
groups in the study of physical processes in oceans and atmospheres. The group 
carries out fundamental research in areas of physics related to (1) geophysical 
fluid dynamics using theory and computation, (2) experimental design and 
implementation of global observational/remote sensing systems, and (3) 
state-of-the-art analysis of observed global-scale data. Although the group is 
focused on fundamental science, its research bears directly on a host of 
applications including international scientific assessments of global climate 
change and stratospheric ozone depletion, environmental impacts of atmospheric 
pollution including tropospheric ozone and biomass burning, and prediction of 
weather on Earth and other planets, ocean circulation, the Arctic and the 
cryosphere, and climate on all timescales. See 
http://www.physics.utoronto.ca/research/eapp for more about the Department’s 
work in atmosphere/ocean physics and related Earth System Physics disciplines.

We welcome you to apply to join us as a prospective graduate student with a 
B.Sc. in Physics or a cognate discipline, including Mathematics, Computer 
Science, Engineering Science, Environmental Physics, and of course 
Atmospheric/Oceanic science. Whatever your background, we value your 
quantitative skills and only require in addition an eagerness to learn and 
curiosity about these fascinating areas of research and study.

If you are interested in joining us you should apply directly to the Department 
of Physics via its website 
(http://www.physics.utoronto.ca/students/graduate-program), and should indicate 
clearly your interest in studying Atmosphere/Ocean Physics in your application. 
The deadline for applications for the 2017-2018 academic year is December 1, 
2016.

If you have further questions about opportunities in theoretical, 
computational, and experimental fields of research in Atmosphere/Ocean physics, 
please contact Prof. Paul Kushner (paul.kushner@utoronto.ca), Nicolas Grisouard 
(nicolas.grisouard@physics.utoronto.ca), or Prof. Debra Wunch 
(debra.wunch@utoronto.ca).

Potential advisors in our group: Nicolas Grisouard, Dylan Jones, Paul Kushner, 
Christopher Lee, Richard Peltier, Kimberly Strong, Kaley Walker, and Debra 
Wunch.
