We are always looking for talented graduate students at the M.S. and Ph.D. level and for postdoctoral scientists interested in the kind of interdisciplinary research we do here. Successful applicants will have strong quantitative and computational experience and a keen interest in linking theoretical approaches with field studies.

Positions Open

Several fully funded positions for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists are available in the area of climate and Earth surface processes in our group. Research topics include climatic and geomorphic studies of the northern Chilean Andes and Atacama Desert of South America, paleoaltimetry of the Sierra Nevada, and global paleoclimatology of tropical cyclones. Significant opportunities for field work and for training in climate modeling are available. Interested students are welcome to contact Dr. Joseph Galewsky for further details.
