Do you love the ocean? Do you love Python? Do you want to earn money applying Python to ocean data? The COAST Lab has an immediate opening for part-time, flexible employment as part of a Coastal Fund project. The successful applicant will develop and maintain an automated script compiling ocean data from publicly available web resources, with the opportunity to contribute to field deployments.

To apply, send to following to nidzieko@ucsb.edu:
– a CV/resume
– unofficial transcript (a list of courses completed and your overall GPA is fine)
– demonstration of Python proficiency: a .py file that extracts ocean data from somewhere on the web (e.g. tides, wind, waves, etc. you pick!) and plots the most recent 3 days of observations.

The position will begin immediately upon finding a suitable applicant.


We seek highly motivated, creative individuals interested in combining aspects of environmental fluid mechanics, marine ecology, biogeochemistry and/or emerging technology to advance our understanding of the ocean.

The deadline for Graduate studies at UCSB is December 15. We will be accepting applications for the 2020 school year through either the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Marine Science (IGPMS) or Department of Geography.
