An NSF funded master student opportunity is available at Indiana State University starting next Fall 2019. What is the Driver of Orbital-Scale Central American Monsoon Variations? Tests of the Insolation and Sea Surface Temperature Hypotheses. This project aims to generate orbital-timescale speleothem isotopic records spanning the last glacial period, 140,000 years or longer, from a cave on the Caribbean coast of Guatemala. The M.S. program of the Department of Earth and Environmental Systems at Indiana State University is designed to provide students with a strong background needed to pursue careers with government and private geoscience agencies or to continue graduate studies at the Ph.D. level. Open to all those considering attending graduate school this coming fall. Students from underrepresented scientific minorities with bi-lingual (English/Spanish) skills to facilitate work in Central America; and stakeholder participation with the local Guatemalan communities hosting the cave sites are encouraged to apply.

Prospective students should contact Dr. Amos Winter ( with C.V. and cover letter.
