Dr. Craig Ferguson of the University at Albany's Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (https://www.albany.edu/asrc) is recruiting one PhD student with a BS or MS (preferred) in Atmospheric Science or Environmental Engineering. The ideal candidate will be interested in hydrology, planetary boundary layer processes, and specifically, the role of ecohydrological processes in subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) hydroclimate predictability and prediction.
As part of a multi-institutional research team, the successful applicant will contribute to NASA-funded research activities focused on drought monitoring and modeling in the central U.S. and in other global hotspots of land-atmospheric coupling. The application and assimilation of NASA Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) and Soil Moisture Active/Passive (SMAP) satellite products will be central to this work. Applicants should have strong analytical skills and be proficient in scientific coding (Python preferred).
For additional details, please contact Dr. Ferguson (email@example.com). Applications are due 15 January 2023 to the Ph.D. program in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences. More details about the degree program may be found at: https://www.albany.edu/daes/programs/phd-atmospheric-science.
