 The Nesbitt Research Group has several fully-funded MS or PhD openings
available in the area of clouds, precipitation, mesoscale meteorology, and
remote sensing, beginning in January 2016.  The application deadline
is *October
The projects include:

   - A NASA-funded project to investigate the interaction between surface
   winds surrounding oceanic precipitation systems as retrieved from ocean
   scatterometer winds, state of the art reanalyses, and current generation
   satellite precipitation estimates to study the life cycle of oceanic
   precipitation.  This work is in collaboration with Dr. Timothy Lang at
   NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.
   - A NASA-funded project to use multi-frequency radar and in situ data
   collected in NASA Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation
   field campaigns to improve satellite precipitation retrievals.  This
   research is in collaboration with Illinois professor Greg McFarquhar.
   - A Department of Energy-funded observational and modeling project to
   investigate the characteristics of convectively-generated cold pools and
   their dynamical interaction with convective systems.  This research is to
   be conducted in collaboration with Illinois professors Jeff Trapp and
   Sonia-Lasher Trapp.

*The Department of Atmospheric Sciences <http://www.atmos.illinois.edu>* at
the University of Illinois is a leader in physical meteorology and
high-impact weather and climate studies and the faculty are developing a
state of the art mobile precipitation-aerosol observatory.  The Illinois
campus is home to the largest supercomputer on any university campus, and
is the most internationally-diverse public university campus in the US.

If you have interest in any of these projects, please contact *Steve
Nesbitt <snesbitt at illinois.edu>*.
