If you are interested in joining our group, please send Earle a brief email with your CV and a summary of your research interests. We particularly welcome solicitations from individuals with a strong quantitative background and a deep interest in ocean and climate dynamics. Please review the information on this website and the group's participation guide before reaching out.

We will recruit graduate students for the Fall of 2023. The ESS admissions page has more information about our department's graduate program and admission process. The graduate program application deadline is early December, and application fee waivers exist for eligible applicants. Our School's DEI office also provides a helpful guide for prospective graduate students.

While we endeavor to respond to email inquiries promptly, this is not always possible. This is especially the case in the Fall quarter when we receive a high volume of emails from prospective graduate students. Please note that our department carefully reviews every application to our graduate program, even if the applicant has not made prior contact with their potential faculty advisor.

While not required, prospective Ph.D. students and postdocs are encouraged to explore external funding opportunities. A non-comprehensive list of potentially applicable fellowships is provided below. Applications are typically open from late summer through early winter. Check the respective fellowship websites for further details.
