Ph.D. Research Assistantships in climate and agricultural modeling in the Atmospheric Science Graduate Program at Rutgers University
The Rutgers Impact Studies of Climate Intervention (RISCI) lab seeks three motivated students to work on our projects to study the impacts of anthropogenic stratospheric aerosols on climate. We are studying proposed climate intervention with sulfate aerosols, and the impacts of soot that would be generated by fires in cities and industrial regions as a result of nuclear war. The work is funded by the National Science Foundation, the Open Philanthropy Project, and SilverLining.
