Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX, USA
Closing date not provided

The Storm Dynamics Group at Texas Tech University invites applications for a Ph.D. position in the field of tornado research, starting in Fall 2023. The successful applicant will work on an NSF funded project using cloud-scale as well as tornado-scale simulations to identify vorticity sources and the mechanisms by which the incipient vortex intensifies into a tornado. Funding is available for three years, and the project is supervised by Dr Johannes Dahl.

Students with a strong interest in the dynamics of convective storms, vortex dynamics, and numerical modeling are encouraged to apply. A M.Sc. degree in atmospheric science or a related field is required at the time of employment.

Inquiries may be directed to Dr Johannes Dahl (
