George Mason University Graduate Studies

The Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Earth Sciences (AOES) at George Mason University is seeking qualified applicants for our new Climate Science MS, our pioneering Climate Dynamics PhD, and our comprehensive Earth System Science MS.   Funding for tuition and stipend is available on a competitive basis.

About these positions:  Our Climate degrees train students to work with complex state-of-the-art models and extremely large data sets, as well as new theoretical ideas. Our Geology degrees emphasize the interconnectedness of Earth systems by linking solid Earth and surficial processes over a wide range of geologic timescales. Students in AOES graduate degrees pursue research in climate change, weather and climate prediction, atmospheric chemistry and air quality, land-ocean-atmosphere interactions, geology, geochemistry, paleontology, oceanography, coastal studies, stratigraphy, and more. For more information, see our Graduate Programs home page or go to https://aoes.gmu.edu.  

About the University: George Mason University is located in the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and is the largest public university in the Commonwealth of Virginia, with the most diverse student body in the state. Mason is a Tier 1 research university committed to an inclusive environment, providing an equal opportunity for all qualified individuals, regardless of race, religion, color, ethnicity, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, age, status as a veteran, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, gender identity, gender expression, or genetic information.

How to apply? Applications and instructions for Fall 2022 admission are at  https://www2.gmu.edu/admissions-aid/apply-now. Note only the applications submitted to the GMU portal will be reviewed. For the best chance of receiving a Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA), submit your application for Fall admission by December 15.
