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.
