Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>>. Applicants with an interest in weather and climate hazards should direct inquiries to Dr. Rich Dixon at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 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 (email@example.com).
