Ph.D. Research Assistantships

With support from the National Science Foundation, North Carolina A&T State University (NCAT) is creating an Extreme Weather Center (EWC) to study extreme weather events such as wind-driven wildfires and intense hurricane precipitation over complex terrain. The EWC will provide education and training to Ph.D. students to study orographic effects of wildfire formation and evolution; orographic effects of precipitation associated with landfalling hurricanes; and the impact of changing climate on the extreme events of wildfires and hurricane precipitation over mountainous area.

  • Candidates with MS and/or BS degrees in atmospheric sciences, geoscience, natural science, or other relevant subjects including mathematics and physics are sought.
  • US citizenship or permanent residency is required for full scholarship support.
  • The starting date is negotiable, but preferably as soon as possible (Fall 2021 or Spring 2022).
