There is currently an opening for a Canadian MSc/PhD student in the climate 
dynamics research group of Prof. Neil Tandon at York University. This group is 
based in the Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering (ESSE) 
within the Lassonde School of Engineering. Students would begin studies in 
September 2019. Both MSc and PhD students would be supported by teaching or 
research assistantships, and they would work towards degrees in Earth and Space 
Science. More information about ESSE and its degree programs may be found at 
<http://esse.lassonde.yorku.ca>

There is a wide range of possible research topics, including long-term.changes 
in the Hadley circulation and midlatitude jets, cloud-circulation interaction, 
the dynamics of extreme precipitation, motion of Arctic sea ice, and 
variability of the ocean overturning circulation. Prof. Tandon's group is 
computationally focused, combining numerical model simulations with analysis of 
various datasets. Additional information about Prof. Tandon's research may be 
found at <http://esse.lassonde.yorku.ca/people/faculty/tandon-neil> and 
<http://www.yorku.ca/tandon>.

The following are requirements for prospective students:
-Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status,
-an undergraduate degree in science, mathematics (pure or applied) or 
engineering,
-an undergraduate GPA of B or better,
-competence in a scientific computing language (e.g., MATLAB, R, Python).

Toronto is a wonderful place to live and work in. It is known for its 
diversity, inclusiveness, vibrant arts scene, walkable neighbourhoods and 
beautiful green spaces. ESSE students enjoy a stimulating research environment 
both on campus and through interactions with nearby institutions like 
Environment and Climate Change Canada and the University of Toronto.

Does this appeal to you? If so, then please proceed to submit your application 
here: 
<http://futurestudents.yorku.ca/graduate/programs/earth-and-space-science>. All 
applications must be received by March 13, 2019. Prospective students should 
apply at the MSc level. (With satisfactory progress, students will advance to 
the PhD program after the first or second year.) Prior to applying, prospective 
students are encouraged to send a CV and a 3-4 sentence statement of interest 
to Prof. Tandon at <tandon@yorku.ca>.
