The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia invites applications from highly qualified students for our M.S. and Ph.D. programs.  The Department of Environmental Sciences is one of the oldest interdisciplinary environmental science departments in the nation and includes faculty and students researching in the atmospheric sciences, ecology, geosciences, and hydrology.  In the atmospheric sciences, we encourage students interested in the following research areas to apply:

 -     Air pollution and atmosphere-biosphere interactions (Advisor: Sally Pusede, Research projects involve trace gas chemistry as related to air pollution, atmosphere-forest interactions, and carbon cycling using laboratory, field, and satellite measurements.

-      Boundary layer and mountain meteorology (Advisor: Stephan de Wekker, ): Research projects involve boundary layer dynamics and land-atmosphere interactions in complex environments using a variety of instruments and platforms (flux towers, unmanned aerial systems, Doppler lidars), and micro- and mesoscale models.

-      Climate dynamics (Advisor: Kevin Grise,  Research projects involve variability and change in synoptic-scale weather systems, the atmospheric general circulation, and cloud feedbacks at midlatitudes using both observations and global climate models.

Admitted M.S. and Ph.D. students are fully supported by research and teaching assistantships during the duration of their degree.  Preference for admission is given to students with a strong undergraduate background in math, science, and computing.  Students interested in the open positions should directly contact the faculty members listed above with questions.

The application deadline for Fall 2019 admission is January 15, 2019.  Further details about application and admission requirements can be found on the Department of Environmental Sciences’ website (
