The CSIR has Masters Scholarships in the Global Change competence area, within the Natural Resources and the Environment (NRE) Unit.
The scholarships are in a range of disciplines that address the research needs of earth systems science with a focus on the oceans, which includes research in physics, marine biology, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, computer science, oceanography, biological sciences and engineering.
These opportunities will be based in Cape Town.
Ocean Physics: Surface ocean physical dynamics of the Southern Ocean, links between fine-scale dynamics and large-scale climate sensitivities.
Ocean Carbon – Climate and CO2 – The coupling between physics and biogeochemistry that leads to a better understanding of the links between CO2 and Climate.
Ocean Biogeochemistry: Phytoplankton primary production in relation to Fe and light availability
Ocean Iron: Analytical techniques in performing high precision trace metal analysis
Ocean Bio-optics: Research towards the development of new and improved ocean color algorithms for the Southern Ocean.
Computational Oceanography/Numerical Modelling: Evaluating Southern Ocean model simulations using high-performance computing, computer skills in model performance, dataset analysis and visualization.
Qualifications, skills, and experience:
