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

  1. The physical processes that relate orbital variations and climate variations
  2. The relation of the atmospheric energy budget and tropical precipitation
  3. Idealized mathematical models of tropical precipitation and tropical circulation
  4. Monsoon dynamics
  5. The effect of continent distribution on tropical climate
  6. The African Humid Period (aka the ‘Green Sahara’)
  7. The relation of volcanic events and tropical precipitation
  8. Tropical precipitation biases in climate models

Considered an advantage: physics or math background, training in atmospheric dynamics, experience in climate modeling, experience with Unix/Linux environment, advanced skills in Matlab or Python.

Prospective students should send an email titled “Open position at the Climate Dynamics group” with a CV and a single-page statement of research interests to Ori Adam at
