Opportunity: PhD Student in GT Ice & Climate Group
Detailed description: The GT Ice & Climate Group is searching for a potential PhD student to start in Fall 2024. This is a fully funded research assistant position to potentially work on the NSF-funded ICE sheet StatE Estimation (ICESEE) project. However, ultimate dissertation scope depends on prospective applicant interests and is subject to discussion with Prof. Robel. PhD students in the GT College of Sciences are paid a standard (college-mandated) stipend rate of 31,500 USD/year in Fall 2023, commensurate with local cost of living in Atlanta. Tuition and benefits are paid separately through project funding, and applicants may also be eligible for nomination for supplemental fellowships to raise stipend rates higher.
Prospective graduate students should apply through the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences or the Program in Ocean Sciences and Engineering.

Location: The Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) is consistently ranked as the top public university in the Southeastern US, is among the best universities in the world across a range of science and engineering fields, and awards more engineering degrees to women and underrepresented minorities than any other university in the United States. GT is located within the exciting and diverse city of Atlanta, a center of American music, food and culture. Atlanta is also located an hour from the Appalachian Mountains, where world-class hiking and climbing opportunities are found, including the Southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The Atlanta-Hartsfield airport is the busiest in the world, and includes direct flights to almost all major airports.
