Graduate Student Opportunity

I have funding to support a new Ph.D. (preferred) or M.S. graduate student.  The general topic is studying the role of climate disasters such as floods and droughts on food supply and resulting societal response throughout human history.  The student will have the opportunity to work with climate data and indices of climate extremes related to prehistoric, preindustrial, and contemporary civilizations.  Please contact me for more information.  Graduate application is online.
