The Department of Geography at Texas State University
(<http://www.geo.txstate.edu>) is seeking highly motivated Master’s and
Doctoral degree seeking applicants for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Texas State is an emerging research institution and the Department of
Geography possesses a vibrant, diverse, and growing faculty with
specialties broadly encompassing geospatial technologies,
human-environment interactions, environmental change, water resources
research, and geographic education. The department has on-campus
affiliations with the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, the
Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education, and the Texas Alliance for
Geographic Education, as well as a history of federally-funded research
involving agencies such as NASA, NSF, and EPA.

In particular, the department is seeking physical geography students
with experience involving geospatial technologies, quantitative methods,
and/or programming skills involving the ability to process and visualize
large weather/climate datasets in various formats (e.g. NetCDF and HDF).
A background in atmospheric science or climatology and interests in
polar and/or middle latitude climate variability and change is
preferred. Please direct interests and inquires related to these
research topics to Tom Ballinger at <tballinger@txstate.edu
<mailto:tballinger@txstate.edu>>. Applicants with an interest in weather
and climate hazards should direct inquiries to Dr. Rich Dixon at
<rd11@txstate.edu>.

Funding opportunities exist for Graduate Assistantships at the Doctoral
($26,000 over 9 months, renewable up to a maximum of 4 years) and
Master's ($13,097 over 9 months) levels. These assistantships also come
with a waiver of out-of-state tuition for autumn and spring semesters
each year. Graduate Assistants also receive university student health
benefits. The Department also provides some conference-related travel
funding for students presenting at meetings (up to 2 conferences per
year). Additional potential sources of funding, such as full tuition
waivers for Year One of a student's program, and doctoral and master's
research fellowships, are competitively available through the Graduate
College.

Applications for full funding considerations are due by January 15,
2016. More details regarding the application process may be found
at<http://www.gradcollege.txstate.edu/steps.html>. Questions regarding
the application and its process may be directed to the Department of
Geography Graduate Staff Advisor, Allison Glass-Smith (am13@txstate.edu).
