Applications are invited for the MSc program in Atmospheric and Climate
Science, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

-> The program: the 1.5-year program in Atmospheric and Climate Science
aims to educate outstanding young scientists for careers in academia,
public administration and the private sector. Students gain in-depth
understanding of climate processes and their interactions – ranging from
the molecular to the global scale and from short-lived phenomena to
changes over millions of years. The program offers quantitative
knowledge on atmospheric dynamics, climate processes and feedbacks,
biogeochemical cycles, paleoclimatology and in-depth training in
numerical modelling of weather and climate. More information can be
found at <www.iac.ethz.ch/edu/prospective/>.

-> The institutes: the program is offered by world-leading institutes in
the field of atmospheric physics, chemistry and dynamics, and global and
regional climate change (e.g. <www.iac.ethz.ch/>, <www.clidyn.ethz.ch/>,
<www.up.ethz.ch/> or <www.climategeology.ethz.ch/>). During the second
half of the program students are directly involved in the research
groups and receive individual supervision and training.

-> The university: ETH offers students a comprehensive education and an
inspiring research environment as one of the leading international
universities for natural sciences and technology. ETH regularly appears
at the top of international rankings as one of the best universities in
the world. Students benefit from an unusually high faculty-to-student
ratio, attractive tuition fees, leading-edge research infrastructure,
and a city with a high standard of living.

-> Who can apply: anyone with a BSc degree in natural sciences or
related fields and a strong background in mathematics, physics and/or
chemistry. The application window for fall 2014 is open until 15
December, 2014 (for applicants for a scholarship
