PhD student opening in Global Ocean Modeling and Scientific Computing

By | Educational, SC2 jobs

A PhD student is sought for a Department of Energy (DOE)-funded project in Global Ocean Modeling and Scientific Computing. The student will work with Professor Brian Arbic at the University of Michigan (U-M), Dr. Phillip Wolfram and Dr. Andrew Roberts of DOE’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, and other DOE scientists. The student will be admitted to the PhD program of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and will attain a joint PhD in U-M’s Program in Scientific Computing.

Project Description

The project involves insertion of tides into the ocean component of the DOE Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM). The ocean component is based upon the Model Prediction Across Scales (MPAS) code, which uses a finite-element mesh to focus attention on coastal regions. With the addition of tidal forcing, the model will be an ideal tool with which to quantify the changes likely to occur in coastal areas over the next 50-100 years. The student will be strongly encouraged to spend significant time in Los Alamos, working alongside DOE scientists. The project is ideal for students who wish to apply the tools of scientific computing to societally relevant problems, in a university-DOE partnership with significant networking and travel opportunities. The project will increase the number of professionals familiar with both oceanography and computational science, an identified need in several federal ocean modeling centers including Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Application Procedure

  • Applicants must have strong quantitative and programming skills. Backgrounds in mathematics, computer science, physics, and related fields will be given highest consideration.
  • The preferred start date is January 1, 2020, but a start date of September 1, 2020 is also possible.
  • Students interested in applying to work with Professor Arbic should email their CV, unofficial transcript and cover letter, combined into a single PDF file to: Arbic-Ocean-Modeling-PhD@umich.edu. Questions about the project may also be sent to this email address.
  • In addition, an application to the PhD program in Earth and Environmental Sciences is required. See the Department website for application information. The application deadline to start in January 2020, is September 15, 2019. The application deadline for Fall 2020 is January 7, 2020.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity employer and is supportive of the needs of dual career couples. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply
