We have a new PhD position in Southern Ocean sea ice physics and ecosystems at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania in Australia. The title of the project is 'Understanding the impacts of fine-scale sea ice and ocean dynamics on Southern Ocean ecosystems'. It is suitable for a student who wants to work with high-resolution ocean-sea ice models and has an interest in how changes in sea ice distribution might impact upon Southern Ocean species.
This project will use ocean-sea ice model output to investigate properties and quantify changes in sea ice over the past 60 years, with a specific focus on how those changes are likely to impact upon key Southern Ocean species (such as Antarctic krill, penguins, seals and whales) and the ecosystem as a whole.
The supervision team includes Stuart Corney (IMAS), Amelie Meyer (IMAS), Hakase Hayashida (IMAS) and Andrew Kiss (ANU). The successful applicant will be located at IMAS in Hobart (Tasmania) and will have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers at the Australian Antarctic Division, Australian National University and CSIRO. The application deadline is September 1st 2020 unless filled earlier.
