Graduate Research Opportunities in Ocean Turbulence & 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 observations and numerical modeling of ocean turbulence and mixing. Specific project areas include field and/or modeling studies of turbulence and optical properties in the marine atmospheric boundary layer, numerical simulations of turbulent wakes generated from towed and self-propelled bodies, and studies of the ocean internal wave field and its impact on ocean mixing. The ideal candidate will have significant education/experience in physics and/or applied mathematics, with additional experience in numerical modeling preferred.
A minimum of a Bachelors degree in oceanography, physics, applied mathematics, engineering or closely related field is required. Applicants should have significant background in physical and/or earth sciences with strong mathematical and computer skills. At least one position is available immediately, with full-time enrollment beginning no later than Fall 2021 expected. Review of applications is ongoing and will continue until positions are filled. Successful applicants are eligible for financial support in the form of tuition and/or fee waivers, teaching and/or research assistantships, and/or stipend.
