The Department of Earth & Environment at Boston University invites applications 
for a Ph.D. research position in Ocean/Atmosphere Dynamics and Modeling.

Goal: Advance a transformative new mechanism linking extratropical atmospheric 
circulations to the initiation and evolution of El Niño/Southern Oscillation 
events.

Project description: We are seeking a highly motivated graduate researcher with 
a strong background in large-scale ocean and atmosphere circulations to join an 
NSF-funded, multi-institution research team investigating the initiation and 
evolution of El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. The student will be 
responsible for leading an investigation of the dynamic and thermodynamic 
response of the tropical Pacific to extratropical-induced trade-wind 
variations.  In addition, the student will have the opportunity to help design, 
conduct and analyze computer model simulations of the ocean and atmosphere at 
NCAR’s new Supercomputing Center.  There are also funds available to attend 
national and international conferences, and do extended research with 
collaborators in both academic and federal research labs.

Qualifications: Suitable backgrounds for applicants include a Bachelors or 
Masters degree in Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanography, Physics, or related 
fields.

The application deadline for doctoral programs in the Department of Earth & 
Environment is January 31, 2017.  All applications must be submitted on-line 
(<http://www.bu.edu/cas/prospective-students/graduate-admissions/apply/>). The 
Department itself comprises ~30 full-time faculty and 50 PhD students, with 
additional cross-disciplinary resources available through both the BU Marine 
Program and the Biogeosciences Program. Boston University guarantees PhD 
students five years of funding through a mix of teaching and research 
fellowships. Applicants may direct questions about the position to Prof. Bruce 
T. Anderson (<brucea@bu.edu>), Dr. Renellys C. Perez 
(<Renellys.C.Perez@noaa.gov>), or Prof. Benjamin Giese (<b-giese@tamu.edu>). 
For more information about the Department or the application process, please 
contact Alissa Beideck, Graduate Program Coordinator, at <abeideck@bu.edu>.  
More information can also be found on the Departmental website 
(<https://www.bu.edu/earth/>).
