Graduate school opportunities in ocean modelling and data analysis at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
We are looking for motivated graduate students (3) interested studying ocean variability in the northwest Atlantic. Funding is available through the recently funded Ocean Frontier Institute.
One project (1 PhD) focusses on numerical ocean modelling. The student will be based in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University. The student project will use a coupled physical-biogeochemical ocean model spanning Canada's three oceans (see below) and would focus on analyzing physical and biogeochemical properties of the ocean, with a focus on climate change and extreme events. Familiarity with Unix, Matlab/Python and supercomputing systems would be a plus, but aren't required. The project is co-supervised by Eric Oliver (ecjoliver.weebly.com) and Katja Fennel (memg.ocean.dal.ca). If interested please e-mail Eric (email@example.com) and Katja (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include your transcripts.
Two additional projects (2 PhDs) focus on the role of the ocean in global climate. The students will be based either in the Department of Oceanography or the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie University. The student projects will use observations and numerical model outputs of the physical and chemical state of the northwest Atlantic, with an aim to unify observations and models statistically in a way that makes the most out of all available data and to generate an improved estimate of the carbon sink in the North Atlantic. Techniques to be developed will involve a combination of physical theory and statistical analyses. Familiarity with Unix, Matlab/Python and supercomputing systems would be a plus, and an undergraduate degree in Physics, Mathematics or Statistics is desirable. The project is co-supervised by Mike Dowd (www.mathstat.dal.ca/~mdowd/) and Eric Oliver (ecjoliver.weebly.com). If interested please e-mail Mike (email@example.com) and Eric (firstname.lastname@example.org).
