Polar Science Research Laboratory
Applications due December 31, 2017
The Graduate School of Geography at Clark University invites applications for a Ph.D. Research Assistantship in satellite remote sensing of sea ice and biology/biogeochemistry of the Arctic Ocean. This US National Science Foundation funded project is focused on the biological and biogeochemical consequences of declining sea ice cover in the Pacific sector of the Arctic Ocean, in particular across the Distributed Biological Observatory (DBO) (https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/dbo/https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/dbo/) change detection array in the northern Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas. Candidates should have strong interests in satellite remote sensing, quantitative analysis, sea ice, and biological/biogeochemical oceanography. The successful candidate will join the Polar Science Research Laboratory at Clark (http://wordpress.clarku.edu/kfrey/) and will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with colleagues from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (http://arctic.cbl.umces.edu/). For further information, please contact Karen Frey (mailto:[hidden email]) and see application details at http://www2.clarku.edu/departments/geography/graduate/prospective-students/apply.cfm (deadline December 31, 2017). We are an affirmative action/equal employment opportunity university and we strongly encourage members from historically underrepresented communities, which is inclusive of all women, to apply.
