M.S. and Ph.D Students

Website University of Virginia

The Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia
invites applications from highly qualified students for our M.S. and Ph.D.
programs.  The Department of Environmental Sciences is one of the
oldest interdisciplinary environmental science departments in the nation
and includes faculty and students researching in the atmospheric sciences,
ecology, geosciences, and hydrology.  In the atmospheric sciences, we
encourage students interested in the following research areas to apply:

Air pollution and atmosphere-biosphere interactions
(Advisor: Sally Pusede, <sep6a@virginia.edu>):
Research projects involve trace gas chemistry as related to air pollution,
atmosphere-forest interactions, and carbon cycling using laboratory,
field, and satellite measurements.

Boundary layer and mountain meteorology
(Advisor: Stephan de Wekker, <dewekker@virginia.edu>):
Research projects involve boundary layer dynamics and land-atmosphere
interactions in complex environments using a variety of instruments and
platforms (flux towers, unmanned aerial systems, Doppler lidars), and
micro- and mesoscale models.

Climate dynamics
(Advisor: Kevin Grise, <kmg3r@virginia.edu>):
Research projects involve variability and change in synoptic-scale weather
systems, the atmospheric general circulation, and cloud feedbacks at
midlatitudes, using both observations and global climate models.

Admitted M.S. and Ph.D. students are fully supported by research and
teaching assistantships during the duration of their degree.  Preference for
admission is given to students with a strong undergraduate background in
math, science, and computing.  Students interested in the open positions
should directly contact the faculty members listed above with questions.

The application deadline for Fall 2019 admission is January 15, 2019.
Further details about application and admission requirements can be found
