PhD/Masters/Student jobs

PhD position in sea ice remote sensing and numerical modelling, University of Huddersfield, UK. Closing date: 15 Nov 2018

PhD position in sea ice remote sensing and numerical modelling

We offer a fully funded PhD opportunity to work with leading experts in sea ice remote sensing and numerical modelling. The Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) is a region of low ice area concentration consisting of a collection of small sea ice floes, profoundly affecting physical and ecological processes and feedbacks in the Arctic Ocean. We are particularly interested in the evolution of Arctic sea ice breakup and floe size in the MIZ, and how this evolution affects various climatic feedbacks operating in the atmosphere-sea ice-ocean interface. The research will incorporate advanced algorithms in processing satellite and airborne imagery, as well as outputs from state-of-the-art numerical models through collaboration with sea ice and climate modelling scientists. We are looking for a student with experience and specific interest in this area of research.

The studentships are open to citizens of the UK or EU only, and cover the full cost of tuition fees and an annual tax-free bursary of £14,764 for three years (RCUK rates). Successful applicants will have a very good first or upper second degree or Masters degree in a relevant subject. The course will begin in January 2019.

To apply, please complete an online application (please see link) under course Biological Sciences, and highlight Dr Phil Hwang as the supervisor. You should also send your CV and supporting documents to sasresearchadmin@hud.ac.uk.

Please contact Dr. Phil (Byongjun) Hwang (B.Hwang@hud.ac.uk) for enquiries on the project.

If you are not citizens of the UK or EU and are interested in this project, please still do contact Dr Phil Hwang.
