One funded Ph.D. assistantship is available in the Modeling Extreme Weather
and Climate lab within Penn State University's (PSU's) Department of
Meteorology and Atmospheric Science, with expected start in the fall of
2019. I am seeking a creative, passionate, dedicated student interested in
extreme weather, particularly at subseasonal and beyond timescales.
Qualified students will preferably have solid supplementary backgrounds in
math, statistics, and computer/data science. Research experience is
desirable, although not required. Information about my past and ongoing
research can be found at: http://www.colinzarzycki.com.
Students may have flexibility to explore particular research areas that
interest them. In particular, possible topics include developing metrics to
quantify extreme weather events, evaluating severe storm proxies in global
NWP/climate data, societal hazards associated with snow and freezing rain,
tropical cyclone dynamics, and high-resolution atmospheric model
Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to reach out to me in advance
at colin.zarzycki at gmail.com and I am happy to arrange Skype calls or
in-person meetings to discuss potential research projects, funding
opportunities, and the department/university/State College area.
Applications for Fall 2019 are due January 15th, although students
interested in being considered for prestigious university fellowships
(strongly encouraged) should apply by December 1st. Information about
graduate student applications at PSU can be found here:
Please feel free to share with potentially interested candidates.
