Academic Level:
Graduate Students (Masters)
Graduate Students (PhD)

We are looking for a highly motivated prospective graduate student who is interested in climate and ocean modeling. Neodymium (Nd) isotopes are thought to be useful tracers of past ocean circulation changes, but the processes that control their distributions in the modern ocean remain controversial. The successful candidate will implement Nd isotopes in a global ocean-climate model, compare model results with observations and paleoclimate data from ocean sediments of the last ice age. Good physics and math skills are required and a desire to work with numerical (computer) models of climate.
