The Climate Science program
<http://dornsife.usc.edu/earth/climate-science/> at the University of
Southern California <http://www.usc.edu/> seeks applications for PhD
fellowships.

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

- The Feakins lab <http://earth.usc.edu/feakins/> 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 fully
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. Formal applications should be completed before
Jan 1, 2013 at <http://www.usc.edu/admission/graduate/>.
