PhD Studentship: Abrupt Change in Climate and Ecosystems

Northern Arizona University

We seek prospective Ph.D. students to work with Dr. Nick McKay and an international research team on a new, three-year funded project to pursue an interdisciplinary Ph.D. that blends paleoclimatology, paleoecology and data science. Potential projects include mapping abrupt change across timescales, investigating climate-forced, ecosystem-forced, and feedback-driven abrupt changes, and assessing the extent to which climate and ecosystem models can reproduce the types of abrupt shifts observed in past millennia. Applicants should have a degree in the Earth or Environmental Sciences or a related discipline and strong quantitative skills.

Furthermore, this studentship is eligible for participation in the NSF-funded T3 program in ecological and environmental informatics. 

Degree options include:

Ph.D. in Earth Sciences & Environmental Sustainability – Climate and Environmental Change emphasis

Ph.D. in Informatics and Computing - Environmental Informatics emphasis
