The Climate System Dynamics Group in the Department of Environmental, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (https://www.uml.edu/Sciences/EEAS/) is recruiting graduate students interested in atmospheric and climate science for funded M.S. positions starting in Fall 2019. Motivated students interested in working with large climate datasets and climate models to study wide-ranging earth system topics, including weather extremes and hydrologic changes in modern, future, and paleo climates are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should have a background in Atmospheric Science, Physics, or a related field. Experience with Python, Matlab, NCL, R, or other programming languages is beneficial. Interested applicants should email Christopher Skinner (Christopher_Skinner@uml.edu) to learn more about the M.S. program at UMass Lowell, and to discuss potential research projects. Please include a CV and a brief summary of research interests in your initial email. Examples of past and ongoing research projects within the Climate System Dynamics Group can be found at: http://www.umlclimatesystemdynamics.com.
