Forwarded from CLIMLIST... A research assistantship position for a MA/PhD level graduate student is available at the Environmental Change Initiative (http://www.brown.edu/Research/ECI/) at the Department of Geological Science at Brown University (<http://www.brown.edu/Departments/Geology/>). The assistantship will provide full tuition support and stipend for a student interested in studying Antarctic meteorology. The Antarctic ice sheet constituted the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth, representing tens of meters of sea level rise if it were to melt completely. We are investigating the role of cyclones in modifying the Antarctic climate. In particular we are interested in investigating what the role of cyclones in modifying the ice sheet mass balance by bringing and redistributing snow. We are also interested in investigating how cyclones affect sea ice around Antarctica. The graduate student will join the on-going project contributing to climate modeling and data analysis efforts. Strong quantitative skills are required, prior interest in polar regions and/or meteorology and climatology is preferred. If interested, please contact Dr. Maria Tsukernik email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> or Prof. Amanda Lynch email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>prior to launching a formal application. Formal applications for graduate school at the Department of Geology at Brown are due January 15, 2013 and the position will start in August 2013.
