I am looking for undergrad and graduate students for various research projects, such as:

  1. The relation of volcanic events and tropical precipitation (undergrad and M.Sc.)
  2. The relation of the atmospheric energy budget and tropical precipitation (undergrad, M.Sc., and Ph.D.)
  3. Tropical precipitation biases in climate models (M.Sc.)
  4. Idealized mathematical models of tropical precipitation and tropical circulation (M.Sc. and Ph.D.)
  5. Monsoon dynamics (M.Sc. and Ph.D.)
  6. The effect of continent distribution on tropical climate (M.Sc. and Ph.D.)
  7. The African Humid Period (aka the ‘Green Sahara’; M.Sc. and Ph.D.)

Considered an advantage: training in atmospheric dynamics, experience in climate modeling, experience with Unix/Linux environment, advanced skills in Matlab or Python and Fortran (F90), and a solid publication record.

Prospective students should send a CV to Ori Adam at
