[Met-jobs] Fully funded PhD position: modelling climate, oceanography, and carbonate production of corals in the Pliocene

Hi all,

We have a fully funded PhD position available at the University of Bristol, UK.

This is part of an EU-funded ITN - "4D-Reef - Past, present, and future of coral reefs in the Coral Triangle":

For this Bristol-based position, UK nationals are not eligible, because students have to leave their home country as part of the program requirements.

An Earth System modelling approach will be used to investigate global change through the Pliocene, and the implications for carbonate production of corals will be explored. A suite of palaeogeographic maps with a temporal resolution of ~1 million years (including the Holocene as a baseline) will provide the basis for a set of global climate model (HadCM3 and/or UKESM) simulations. Sensitivity studies to the palaeogeography, particularly in the region of the Coral Triangle, and orbit and CO2 will be carried out, in order to fully explore the uncertainties in the Pliocene climate.
