Forwarded from CLIMLIST... 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 (<firstname.lastname@example.org>), Dr. Renellys C. Perez (<Renellys.C.Perez@noaa.gov>), or Prof. Benjamin Giese (<email@example.com>). For more information about the Department or the application process, please contact Alissa Beideck, Graduate Program Coordinator, at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. More information can also be found on the Departmental website (<https://www.bu.edu/earth/>). Boston University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
