Applications to do a PhD are encouraged from students with a strong quantitative background 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:
NSF (AGS),
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.

Undergraduate

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 (12.003 or equivalent) prior to starting the UROP.
