The Earth Science department <http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/home/> at
the University of Southern California <http://www.usc.edu/> seeks
graduate applications to its climate program
<http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/research/research_climate_science.cfm>.

- The Emile-Geay lab <http://climdyn.usc.edu> investigates low-frequency
climate variability over the Common Era using probabilistic and
deterministic approaches. We are looking for candidates with a strong
quantitative background to tackle subjects at the interface between
physics, statistics and geochemistry.

- The Feakins lab <http://dornsife.usc.edu/labs/feakins/home/> uses
isotope and organic geochemical techniques to reconstruct past climate
change. We are looking for candidates with chemistry skills and
aptitude, and various bio/chem/geo/climate interests, for projects that
span proxy development to paleoclimate applications.

- The Stott lab <http://earth.usc.edu/~stott/> has openings for
candidates to participate in two ongoing research initiatives. One seeks
to understand the Ocean’s role in regulating glacial/interglacial
atmospheric CO2 cycles. The second is investigating how
ocean-atmospheric interactions influenced recurrent drought over the
western US during the past three centuries. Candidates with interests in
combining geochemical tracers with Earth System models are encouraged to
apply.

Graduate studies at USC are expected to last 5 years and are supported
by competitive stipends, amidst a friendly research environment and
incomparable weather. Interested applicants should email a CV,
undergraduate GPA and (if available) GRE scores to the professor they
wish to work with.
