One Ph.D. position immediately available at Washington State University (USA)

We are seeking one energetic and motivated Ph.D. student beginning August 2012 to join us to conduct research in micrometeorology and boundary-layer meteorology in the Laboratory for Atmospheric Research (LAR), Washington State University, Pullman, Washington. Applicants should have strong background in atmospheric sciences, physics, and mathematics or related fields. A quantitative/modeling/programming background and previous field experience are desired. The student will work on micrometeorological instruments (e.g., eddy covariance systems) in future field campaigns and analyze turbulence data from micrometeorological experiments to quantify turbulence structures over heterogeneous and complex terrain in the atmospheric surface layer, the surface energy budget over different land surfaces, and the influence of environmental factors on CO2 fluxes over different ecosystems.

The research assistantship includes stipend, tuition, and health insurance. Prospective students should contact Dr. Heping Liu (heping.liu@wsu.edu ) for additional information and to submit a C.V. for consideration. Admission and other infomration can be found at the WSU Graduate School website: http://gradsch.wsu.edu/. To learn more about the LAR program, visit http://www.lar.wsu.edu.

WSU is an EEO employer. Protected group members are encouraged to apply.
