I'm looking for a graduate student interested in working on modeling global ocean circulation and the cycling of Neodymium. If you have a good physical sciences and math background, if you're interested in numerical modeling, climate and paleoceanography this is the project for you. Contact me for questions and/or apply to our graduate program in Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences.
