Available Graduate Research Assistantships in Climatology at the University of Idaho

Job Description
Two research assistantships (PhD level preferred) are available to join a collaborative research effort to understand the agricultural impacts of climate change in the Pacific Northwest. Research will include analyzing observed and projected climate across the Pacific Northwest, including, but not limited to evaluating projected changes in agroclimatic zones and irrigation demands under future climate scenarios as well as historic and projected climate-insect interactions and weather-driven soil erosion. Students will interact with other students and scientists working on diverse aspects of this broadly collaborative project on climate change and agriculture that includes researchers across several disciplines at three land-grant universities (University of Idaho, Washington State University and Oregon State University).

Prospective students should have a background in quantitative geography or ecology, atmospheric science, or a related earth sciences field. The overall goal of this USDA-NIFA funded project is to enhance the sustainability of cereal production systems under ongoing and projected climate change while contributing to climate change mitigation (http://reacchpna.uidaho.edu/reacchpna).

The position provides 12-month salary support ($22-27k/yr) plus health insurance, tuition, and fees.

For more information contact Dr. John Abatzoglou (jabatzoglou@uidaho.edu) and Dr. Von Walden (vonw@uidaho.edu).
