Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Climate & Tree-Ring Environmental Science lab <http://wise.web.unc.edu/> in the Department of Geography <http://geography.unc.edu/> at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is currently seeking applicants to begin the PhD program in fall 2015. There are two funded Graduate Research Assistantships in synoptic climatology and dendrochronology available. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own research related to one of the following two research projects. The first PhD position is part of an NSF-funded research project investigating long-term variability in moisture delivery to the Pacific Northwest using seasonally resolved tree-ring isotope records. The second PhD position is part of an NSF-funded research project examining large-scale climatic drivers of streamflow variations over the Missouri River Basin at both instrumental and pre-instrumental time scales. The C-TRES research group, led by Dr. Erika Wise, uses dendrochronology to answer questions concerning pre-instrumental synoptic climatology, ocean-atmosphere oscillations, and water resources. The geographical focus thus far has been on western North America, especially the Pacific Northwest and the Intermountain West. The lab facilities, renovated in 2014, include a custom-built measuring table, separate wood preparation and storage areas, standing work benches, and student research carrels. UNC-CH offers opportunities for field & lab research, collaborations with Duke and NC State universities and across North Carolina’s Research Triangle. The ideal candidate will have experience in one or more of these areas: synoptic climatology, dendrochronology & paleoclimatology, statistics & time series analysis, and programming in Matlab or R. Strong oral and written communication skills are required. Those with work experience and/or who have completed a Master’s degree are particularly encouraged to apply, although those finishing a Bachelor’s degree will also be considered. Interested candidates will apply to the Department of Geography through the UNC Graduate School <http://gradschool.unc.edu/admissions/instructions.html> ; the deadline to be considered for nomination by the Department for competitive fellowships is December 16, 2014. Information needed for applying to UNC geography can be found here: <http://geography.unc.edu/graduates/applications> If you are interested in these positions, send your c.v. to Dr. Erika Wise at <email@example.com> before the application deadline and tell me about your background, skills, and future research interests. Sincerely, Dr. Erika Wise Dept. of Geography UNC-Chapel Hill firstname.lastname@example.org <http://geography.unc.edu/people/faculty-1/erika-wise>
