Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Six Graduate Positions in Climate Research at the University of Nevada, Reno Geography Department The new Interdisciplinary Climate Research Lab in the Department of Geography at the University of Nevada, Reno, led by Dr. Douglas Boyle and Dr. Scott Bassett, has six funded research fellowships for Doctoral students interested in pursuing multi-disciplinary climate research with us and our collaborators at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, University of Maine, the University of Arizona, and University of Texas at Austin. Potential projects include: (1) Hydrologic modeling of paleolake and glacier systems in the Great Basin, South America, and the Tibetan Plateau to improve our understanding of paleoclimate conditions since the Last Glacial Maximum, (2) Investigating the impacts of possible future climate change on agricultural water right acquisitions aimed at improving the environmental conditions of Walker Lake (a terminal lake in Nevada), (3) Investigating the impact of climate change on vegetation dynamics in semi-arid and alpine communities, and (4) Investigating climate driven future land use scenarios in rural agricultural communities. The positions, which are funded through the Nevada State Climate Office (NSCO) and a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), begin in August 2013 and are for four years with half-time monthly salary support of $1,800 during the academic year and the possibility of full-time support during the summer (combined up to $27,000/year). Health insurance and partial tuition waivers are also provided. Students with scientific backgrounds in hydrology, climate, geography, planning or ecology and an interest in computer modeling and interdisciplinary research are encouraged to apply. Applicants must send a Curriculum Vitae, unofficial transcripts, GRE scores and a personal statement (1?2 pages) describing your previous research experience and future research interests to Dr. Douglas Boyle <firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>> and Dr. Scott Bassett <firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>>. Applicants will also need to submit an application to the Geography Ph.D. program <http://www.unr.edu/grad/admissions/apply>. For full consideration all material must be received by March 1, 2013. =================================================== Douglas P.
