Montones de oportunidades muy chulas. Tremendo esto: "94% of students have a job in the field 6 months after graduation"

The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) at the University of Miami is seeking applicants to several Ph.D. research assistantships available in 2020. RSMAS faculty research interests fall under the following departments: Atmospheric Science (ATM), Marine Biology and Ecology (MBE), Marine Ecosystems and Society (MES), Marine Geosciences (MGS), Meteorology and Physical Oceanography (MPO), and Ocean Sciences (OCE). Please see our website for more information about specific research assistantships and faculty interests:

The majority of Ph.D. students are supported as Graduate Research Assistants during their tenure (typically 5 years). These assistantships provide an annual salary of $30,312, and tuition and health insurance is provided for all students. All applications received prior to January 1, 2020 will be reviewed.

We are visiting these campuses and locations over the next few months for recruitment:

December 9-13: AGU Conference / Berkley/ San Francisco, CA (possibly travel as far as Monterey Bay) - Humboldt State University on 12/11/19

January 10-16: AMS Annual Meeting 2020 / Boston, MA

February 16-21: Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020 / San Diego, CA

Master of Professional Science (take the same courses as Ph.D. and MS students, but instead of a thesis/dissertation, you do an internship/research in the field with organizations such as NOAA, NPS, NGOs, etc. and 94% of students have a job in the field 6 months after graduation). These applications are still open for Fall 2020 through June (rolling admission):

Degree Programs

o Applied Remote Sensing

o Aquaculture

o Broadcast Meteorology

o Coastal Zone Management

o Exploration Science

o Fisheries Management and Conservation

o Marine Conservation

o Marine Mammal Science
