Research & Study Opportunities

Studying atmospheric dynamics is exciting because it involves trying to understand why the atmosphere moves and evolves the way it does. The complexity of the earth system makes this endeavor even more interesting because the atmosphere is strongly linked to the oceans, land-surface, biosphere and space! Below are listed current opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students and Postdocs interested. As always, feel free to send an email if you have any questions.


For Current Undergraduates

We are always looking for enthusiastic undergraduates who are interested in science and math to participate in climate and atmospheric research. Many atmospheric scientists get their degrees in things other than atmospheric science, so if you are thinking about graduate school down the line, doing research while an undergraduate is a great way to test the waters. Send an email if you want to know more!

For Prospective Graduate Students

The Atmospheric Science department at CSU has an amazing graduate program and Fort Collins is a wonderful place to live. If you are interested in atmospheric and climate science at CSU please send an email! Below you will find some additional resources about the research being done here, how to apply to the graduate program and some external funding opportunities.

For Prospecitive Postdoctoral Researchers

There are a few excellent Postdoctoral Fellowships available, and two allow complete freedom in choosing the host and institution. (The third is hosted at NCAR in Boulder, just an hour from Fort Collins.) All of these programs have deadlines near the start of the new year, so watch for updates to the announcements in early autumn.
