Graduate Research Assistant
Funding (stipend and tuition) is available for a student wishing to pursue a Master’s degree. This graduate research assistant (GRA) position deals with highly quantitative information, and spans detailed simulation and modeling, and data analysis. A requirement for this type of work is proficiency in computer programming. Proficiency in a (any) programming language. Position will use Matlab extensively, and Fortran as well for some projects. A background in C or C++, or another scripting language (i.e. Python or R), would also be valuable. 

The simulation and modeling projects will require physics and biology for simulating vegetation and soil processes. Some background in physics is preferred, and the typical background of an engineering student is likely sufficient for this. Fluid mechanics can be a plus for specific projects that they might take on, and if a particular interest in computational fluid dynamics there are potential projects that could make an excellent fit. Some basic background in biology or ecology is good, but not required. 

Students more interested in data analysis than simulation and modeling would need a programming background, and a background in statistics as the data analysis / machine learning approaches require the extensive use of statistics.

A 3.0 GPA is required. The GRE must be taken—no minimum score required. Contact Candy McBride  mcbride.215@osu.edu
