PhD Graduate Assistant Opportunities

 The Department of Atmospheric Science invites applications for PhD Graduate Assistantships in the areas of climate modeling, water resources, aerosol and cloud physics, airborne observations, and remote sensing. Graduate  Assistantships include stipend, summer salary, full tuition and fees, and health insurance. Applicants with a strong physical science or engineering undergraduate degree will be considered, and an undergraduate degree in atmospheric science or meteorology, although significant, is not required. The department profile can be found at
