The Tropical Atmospheric Dynamics group at Iowa State University is seeking a bright and enthusiastic graduate student to begin Fall 2021 on a fully-funded, Graduate Research Assistantship. The potential student should have strong skills in applied mathematics and computer programming (FORTRAN, Python, NCL) with interests in numerical modeling of tropical storms, the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone, and more generally, Earth’s climate system. Those from underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply.

The potential student will have opportunities to present their work at national conferences and to travel to Boulder, Colorado to work with collaborators at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The potential student will also have opportunities to help develop hands-on science activities for K–12 students in central Iowa.
