Position: PhD-position within the SEALINK project: “Numerical modelling of ocean dynamics and transport of substances on Dutch Caribbean reef systems”
Institution: Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research
Location: 't Horntje, Texel, North Holland, Netherlands
Duties: The main aim of this PhD project is to determine how ocean physics and hydrodynamics affect the redistribution of land-derived substances in coastal waters. Therefore, a regional ocean model will be created and forced by tides and regional weather conditions (wind, atmospheric pressure, evaporation, precipitation) to translate island-scale patterns in water movement to local differences in boundary layer flow. Within this model flow, virtual Lagrangian particles will be used to quantify the residence time of water in reef structures of varying structural complexity
Requirements: The ideal candidate for this PhD position is an excellent, highly motivated scientist with a university degree (MSc) in physics, mathematics, oceanography, meteorology or a related area. We are looking for a candidate with excellent skills in math, programming (C++, Python, Matlab), numerical modelling and data-analysis. The candidate is expected to attend workshops, summer schools, national and international meetings and participate in field-work on the Dutch Caribbean Islands
