Academic Level:
Graduate Students (Masters)

Description:
The Coastal Biogeochemical Dynamics Lab in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut (UConn) seeks applicants for two fully funded MS or PhD positions in regional biogeochemical modeling to begin in Fall 2021. Individuals with an undergraduate and/or graduate degree in oceanography, marine science, engineering, chemistry, physics, computer science, math, biology, or related subject are encouraged to apply.

Potential research topics include NOAA-funded projects focused on understanding the processes responsible for the variability and predictability of oxygen and carbon variables in coastal environments on various timescales through the use of regional models. You will work on developing models, analyzing output, and delivering the relevant information to coastal communities who rely on this information for planning and decision making. Visit our lab website for more information about our research.

Students receive continuous stipend support starting at ~$25,000 per 9-months with an additional summer stipend of ~$8000 per summer. Admission also includes tuition waiver, health insurance benefits, computing resources, and support for professional development as well as research related travel.
