The Weather Hazards and Climate group in the Department of Earth,
Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences <http://www.eaps.purdue.edu/> (EAPS)
at Purdue University has MS or PhD openings available in the area of
meteorological hazards, climate, and climate change beginning in Fall 2016.

Society is vulnerable to weather hazards (hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.),
and these hazards are governed by the laws of physics. Our group uses
theory, numerical modeling, and observations:

1. to understand the underlying physics of these hazards and their
dependence on the climate; and
2. to develop clever physics-based models for quantifying risk and
societal impacts


Purdue EAPS is a leader in the study of Earth’s atmosphere and is
actively developing a new research and teaching program in the area of
extreme weather and climate. As the only U.S. school with three of the
world’s 500 most powerful supercomputers, Purdue University hosts the
best collection of high-performance research computing systems in the
country.

If you are interested in pursuing graduate research in these areas,
please contact Dan Chavas <mailto:dchavas@purdue.edu>
​ (dchavas@purdue.edu <mailto:dchavas@purdue.edu>)*
. Students with backgrounds in physics and math are particularly
encouraged to apply.

Information about application requirements is available at:
<http://www.eaps.purdue.edu/for_students/graduate/grad_admissions.html> .
Final deadline for applications is January 2, 2016, though contact prior
to this date is encouraged.
