Dear students and colleagues,

The Hydroclimate Lab in the Geography & Earth Sciences Department at UNC Charlotte has TA funding, possibly supplemented by tuition awards, for up to two new MS students in climate data analysis to begin Fall 2019.  Interested applicants should contact Dr. Jack Scheff at .  Possible topics include the effects of future, present and/or past climate change on drought and the water cycle, on midlatitude atmospheric circulation, or on tropical precipitation.

More broadly, the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte offers a Master of Science in Earth Sciences degree with opportunities for study and research in the areas of geology, hydrology, atmospheric science, remote sensing, spatial analysis, and environmental science. Our program offers Earth Science graduate students personal guidance typical of a relatively small department, with the field, laboratory, and computing facilities and resources that accompany a much larger unit. Within this context, you will find a healthy combination of both field- and model-based Earth Science research as well as applied and academic research opportunities.

Our program is currently seeking competitive candidates for several teaching assistant positions beginning in fall 2019. Teaching assistantship funding may be supplemented by tuition awards for exceptional candidates.

If you are interested in pursuing cutting-edge Earth Sciences research in our multi-disciplinary program, please consult the program website at and faculty research at

Review of applications will begin February 1, 2019. Apply at

Please direct general inquiries about our MS program to Dr. Sara Gagné, MS Earth Sciences Coordinator,, 1-704-687-5911, and specific inquiries about the above Hydroclimate Lab positions to Dr. Jack Scheff, .

Many thanks,
Jacob (Jack) Scheff
Assistant Professor, Geography & Earth Sciences
UNC Charlotte
