The Climate Dynamics Lab in the Division of Earth and Climate Sciences, Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University has an open PhD position to start in Fall 2022. The main goal of our lab is to understand the role of air-sea coupling in global climate change and variability by combining theory, observations, and climate modeling. The prospective student will have the flexibility to develop a PhD project in a broad range of topics, including but not limited to global warming pattern formation, ocean inter-basin teleconnection, El Nino dynamics, and paleoclimate.

The application deadline is January 10th, 2022. Applications from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. More details about the PhD program can be found on the website below.
