Functiebeschrijving

The amount of plastic in our ocean is growing exponentially, with recent estimates of more than 5 million metric tonnes of plastic reaching the ocean each year. This plastic infiltrates the ocean food web and thus poses a major threat to marine life. However, understanding of the distribution, pathways and fate of plastic once in the ocean is very limited. The project ‘Tracking Of Plastics In Our Seas’, funded by the European Research Council, will create a novel comprehensive modelling framework that simulates plastic movement through the ocean, and use that framework to significantly improve the understanding of the plastic pollution in our oceans.

This PhD position will contribute to the development of numerical parameterisations of how plastic moves through the ocean, compiling and analysing interdisciplinary data from published observations and lab experiments on the fate of plastic in the ocean and converting that data to relations between the ocean-state (wind, currents, waves, tides, phytoplankton concentration) and movement of virtual plastic particles. The PhD will then use these parameterisations to investigate how ocean currents move plastic around the globe.

Functie-eisen

Requirements:
- MSc in Physics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics or similar field;
- Strong skills in python programming;
- Ability to cooperate within a wider research team;
- Excellent level of written and spoken English.

Desirable:
- Proven affinity with physical oceanography;
- Strong skills in C programming;
- Experience with software development practices such as version control, and unit-testing.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

The candidate is offered a full-time position for 4 years. The gross monthly salary coming with a fulltime appointment will amount to €2,191 in the first year to €2,801 in the fourth year (P-scale of the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities). The salary is supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8,3% per year. In addition we offer: a pension scheme, a partially paid parental leave, flexible employment conditions. The research group will provide the candidate with necessary support on all aspects of the project. For further information: working at Utrecht University.

A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major societal themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Sustainability.

The city of Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, with a charming old center and an internationally oriented culture that is strongly influenced by its century-old university. Utrecht city has been consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the Netherlands.

The Faculty of Science consists of six departments: Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Information and Computing Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry and Mathematics. The Faculty is home to 5600 students and nearly 1500 staff and is internationally renowned for the quality of its research. The Faculty's academic programmes reflect developments in today's society.


The mission of the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht (IMAU) is to contribute to the basic science of the oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere. This knowledge is used in studies on climate change and the possible implications for mankind.
