Applications to do a PhD are encouraged from students with a strong quantitative undergraduate degree in a field such as atmospheric science, physics, mathematics or computational science. Information on applying to the EAPS doctoral program is given here.


Applications to be a postdoctoral scholar are also encouraged, and these may be funded by postdoctoral fellowships programs at the:
NOAA (Climate and Global Change),
McDonnell Foundation, and
MIT EAPS (Houghton and Lorenz postdoctoral fellowhips).
Please contact Prof. O'Gorman if you are interested in applying to one of these fellowships.

Undergraduates at MIT

Undergraduates at MIT are encouraged to do research in our group through the UROP program. Please contact Prof. O'Gorman if you are interested in applying for a UROP. It is recommended that students take an introductory class in atmosphere, ocean, or climate dynamics (e.g., 12.003) prior to starting the UROP.

MIT summer research program (MSRP)

The goal of the MSRP is to increase the number of underrepresented minorities and underserved (e.g., low socio-economic background, first generation) students in the research enterprise. MSRP seeks to identify talented sophomores, juniors, and non-graduating seniors who might benefit from spending a summer doing research on MIT's campus. Information on applying to the MSRP is given here.
