Graduate Research Opportunities in Ocean Mixing:

Graduate Student / Research Assistant
School for Marine Science and Technology
University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

The School for Marine Science and Technology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth invites applications from qualified students to our Masters and Ph.D. programs to work on problems relating to ocean mixing. Specific project areas include state-of-the-art numerical modeling and analysis of ocean internal waves and vortical mode in the context of lateral dispersion and the internal-wave energy cascade. Model results will also be compared with data from field studies using dye and drifter release experiments, with observational data sets used to guide the numerical analysis. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in fluids modeling, and applied math and/or physics.

A minimum of a Bachelors degree in oceanography, physics, applied mathematics, engineering or closely related field is required. Applicants should have strong mathematical and computer skills with some background in physical and/or earth sciences. Review of applications is ongoing and will continue until positions are filled. Positions are available immediately, with full-time enrollment beginning no later than Fall 2018 expected. Depending on level of qualifications, successful applicants may be eligible for financial support in the form of tuition and/or fee waivers, teaching and/or research assistantships, and/or stipend. Applications to our graduate program are available through our website: For more information about our programs, please also visit: .
