PhD in ocean instrumentation and biogeochemistry (closes 12/31/2018)

The URI Graduate School of Oceanography is seeking applicants for a funded PhD position in ocean instrumentation and polar biogeochemistry. The research will focus on instrument and method development of underwater mass spectrometry (UMS). UMS observations can be used to estimate ocean ecosystem metabolism, to trace glacial melt around marine-terminating glaciers, and to map benthic methane and nitrous oxide fluxes. The first phase of the PhD will utilize UMS data collected in the Terra Nova Bay polynya, Antarctica.

This project includes opportunities to expand the existing capacities of the UMS, and for data processing by machine learning, depending on the interests of the successful applicant.
