Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Atmospheric Sciences group in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is recruiting a PhD student for a Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) beginning in the fall of 2014. A GRA position provides a monthly salary, a full tuition waiver, and subsidized insurance. Funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), the project involves scientists with expertise in climate, forest ecology, and economics. The goal is to quantify and understand the complex nonlinear interactions of coupled human and natural systems, with a focus on biophysical, biogeochemical, and economic interactions in western forested ecosystems. We will model and predict large-scale tree mortality resulting from warming, drought, bark beetles, forest management, and the interactions among these factors. The role of this GRA position will be to analyze the data from a crowd-sourced climate modeling experiment in the climateprediction.net family. A regional atmospheric model will be coupled with a vegetation model to examine nonlinear behavior, and the GRA will learn to write code in a high-level programming environment like IDL or matlab in order to perform scientific analysis. Strong written, verbal, and quantitative skills are essential, and the candidate must meet entrance requirements for Atmospheric Sciences; some programming experience is preferred. The successful candidate will be expected to work independently and collaboratively as an active member of an interdisciplinary research group. For full consideration, interested students should apply to the Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences major within the CEOAS graduate program. Applications are due no later than January 5, 2014. Information on the application process can be found at <http://ceoas.oregonstate.edu/future/apply/oeas/>. Questions about this opportunity can be emailed to Dr. Philip Mote, <firstname.lastname@example.org>. In-person meetings can be arranged for students attending the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco, December, 9-13, 2013.
