Forwarded from CLIMLIST... PhD fellowship in ocean and climate dynamics, University of Pennsylvania Deadline January 15, 2017 I am at the AGU meeting in San Francisco: Mo-Th (Dec 12-15th). Email me and let’s meet! If interested, please contact Dr. Irina Marinov at imarinov at sas.upenn.edu with your CV, transcripts, a proposed ideal project and written/paper samples, as well as the relevant science/computational background. Formal PhD application deadline for our department is January 15 2017. Seeking motivated doctoral students to join my ocean & climate dynamics group for the 2017-2018 academic year in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia (<https://climate.sas.upenn.edu>) Possible scientific research directions include: -The role of the oceans (including Southern Ocean) in the global climate; global teleconnections linking high and low latitudes. -The response of global ocean physics, carbon and oxygen cycles to climate change, including feedbacks. Developing theories on what controls the oceanic sink for atmospheric CO2 on various timescales. -Ocean ecology: past and future responses to a changing physical climate. Biological-physical interactions in the ocean. Phytoplankton functional groups from space. -Including evolutionary concepts and functional traits into ecological models and coupling them to comprehensive global climate models. -Climate Impacts, various topics (e.g.: ecosystem/population/health impacts of sea level rise, delta/mangrove/coastal changes) Projects involve running global climate models and analyzing a combination of model output, global in-situ satellite-based datasets. Applicants must be self-motivated and hard working, with good written and verbal communication skills. Strong analytical background irrespective of your undergraduate major (e.g. math, physics, engineering or theoretical ecology coursework) and programming experience (e.g. Fortran, Matlab, python, unix environment programming) desired.
