Funding is available in the BioCOM lab (http://www.vims.edu/research/units/labgroups/biocom/) of Dr. Marjy Friedrichs for quantitative and interdisciplinary graduate students interested in studying historical and future impacts of climate and land-use change on hypoxia and acidification of the Chesapeake Bay and coastal mid-Atlantic Bight waters. Prospective M.S. and Ph.D. graduate students interested in combining mathematical models with biological, physical and chemical observations are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with strong quantitative GRE scores, college-level physics, chemistry and/or math coursework, and at least some computer programming experience.
For more information, please contact Dr. Friedrichs directly using the email link above.
