New Graduate Student Opportunities Available

Multiple Assistantships Available in Geology and Meteorology

Motivated and talented graduate students are invited to apply to M.S. and Ph.D. programs offered in geology and meteorology to fill multiple graduate assistant positions. Although we strongly encourage students with interests in all fields of geoscience to apply, we particularly encourage students with a strong background in chemistry as some teaching assignments may include introductory chemistry laboratory classes. Summer support is also likely beyond the 9-month academic year. In addition, the geology program will consider one or two outstanding Ph.D. applicants for the recently endowed David Morehouse Fellowships that will cover full-tuition and a stipend for the first year (12 months) of studies. Faculty and student research covers five broad focus areas: Climate and Quaternary Studies, Geoscience Education, Hydrological Sciences, Microscale and Mesoscale Meteorology, and Solid Earth Processes. Information about the graduate program and the Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences can be found at www.ge-at.iastate.edu. Applicants should initially contact individual faculty members as soon as possible to indicate interest, but should do so no later than the university application deadline of January 1. All qualified students will receive consideration for acceptance without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or protected Veteran status. Questions regarding the positions should be directed to the Department Chair (Bill Simpkins; bsimp@iastate.edu)
