Applications open for PhD thesis on Lagrangian study of fine-scale physical-biological-coupling in Marseille, France

In the framework of the SWOT mission, the PhD thesis will contribute to bridge the gap between ocean circulation and marine biodiversity, by exploring the impact of ocean fine scales (1-100 km) on phytoplanktonic community structure. In order to achieve this, biophysical data from the 2018 PROTEVS-BIOSWOT will be analyzed by developing a novel biophysical modeling technique specifically designed for addressing fine-scale questions. The work will also provide the modeling framework that will be needed for the exploitation of the future observations of BIOSWOT-Med and possibly other cruises during the 2023 fast-sampling phase of the SWOT satellite mission.

The thesis will be carried out at the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO), campus Luminy, Marseille, France

Deadline for application: 31 March 2022
