I would like to setup a full node, but it appears I need to contact my ISP and establish a static IP.

A Static IP is the best solution if you can get one. If not, a workaround could be using a dynamic DNS service that creates a (sub)domain that always points to your IP address and is automatically updated using a tool on your computer/server. Some of the Dynamic DNS services you could use are:
