Fully-funded graduate positions in Atmospheric Science, Climatology and Meteorology 

 

The Atmospheric Science Program in the Department of Geological Sciences at Indiana University is accepting applications for 2-4 fully-funded graduate studentships (M.S. or Ph.D.) for admission in Fall 2013. Funding includes a generous stipend, fees and health insurance in exchange for 20 hours a week working either as a research or a teaching assistant during the semesters.

 

Current federally funded projects include (faculty contacts for these areas are provided):

(i)   Climate modeling, climate downscaling, climate science and impacts of extreme events (Prof. S.C. Pryor (email: spryor@indiana.edu)

(ii)  Atmospheric aerosols/atmosphere-surface exchange. (Prof. S.C. Pryor email: spryor@indiana.edu)

(iii) Boundary-layer and wind power meteorology (Prof R.J. Barthelmie email: rbarthel@indiana.edu)

 

We have excellent facilities for experimental research including meteorological towers and remote sensing systems (including lidar and scanning lidar) plus standard suite of meteorological and atmospheric chemistry instrumentation. We offer outstanding purpose-built laboratory and office facilities in a new multidisciplinary building and world-class computational resources for research in modeling and large-scale data analysis. We are running WRF for a range of research applications. There are links to other excellent research facilities and projects within the Department of Geological Sciences on a range of topics including paleoclimate, isotopes, geothermal energy, physical hydrology etc. See http://geology.indiana.edu/research/ for a full list.

 

Applications are encouraged from numerate students from any scientific background but are especially welcome from atmospheric science, engineering or computing. Projects may be either/both model or measurement based and will be developed in consultation with the candidate. Please see http://geology.indiana.edu/education/prospective-graduate.html for details and for application http://www.graduate.indiana.edu/admissions.php

 

The application deadline is 1 February 2013 but fellowships and funding for visiting Indiana University in Bloomington will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis from January 15 2013.
