The Department of Geography at the University of Florida seeks graduate students in climatology and meteorology at the Ph.D. level to start in Fall 2020.
Prospective students would join a vibrant research group with research areas including hurricanes, extreme precipitation events, middle latitude storms, and future climate change scenarios. We analyze a variety of observed and remotely-sensed datasets along
with model outputs, and utilize Geographic Information Systems, advanced statistical techniques, and the Weather Research and Forecasting model. The atmospheric sciences group is part of a multidisciplinary department with strengths in Earth Systems Science,
Medical Geography, Catastrophes/Conflicts/Conservation, and Spatial Networks.
Two special sources of funding are available in addition to research or teaching assistantships which offer stipend, tuition waiver, and health insurance. (1)The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship aims to increase the number of African-American and Hispanic faculty in the state of Florida. Each fellow receives a base stipend of $26,080 with tuition, health insurance and fee waiver for five years of Ph.D. studies. Applications must be submitted to the Florida Education Fund before January 15. Students must ALSO apply separately to UF. (2) Applications for UF Graduate School Preeminence Awards are open to all new Ph.D. students. Each fellow receives a base stipend of $31,000 over 4 years, tuition waivers and health insurance.
