Dr. Scott Curtis is seeking applicants for two graduate research assistantships at the M.S. and/or Ph.D. level to begin fall 2018.  The first applicant is sought for a project supported by the NSF, where the student will contribute to the analysis of interannual rainfall variability within the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basin (https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1660447&HistoricalAwards=false).  Students must have the ability to work within a multidisciplinary team of scientists from the U.S. and Bangladesh.  Knowledge of GIS and spatiotemporal statistics are desired.  The second applicant would be funded under the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Advancement Council Distinguished Professorship in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics.  It is up to the applicant to propose a research plan that falls within Dr. Curtis’s scope of climate research.  The M.S. would be in Geography and the Ph.D. would be in Coastal Resources Management.  Questions about these opportunities should be directed to Dr. Curtis (252-328-2088, curtisw@ecu.edu).  To apply to East Carolina University graduate school directly, go to: http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/gradschool/Apply-Landing-Page.cfm
