Applications are now being accepted for a funded PhD or MS student with interests in applying field-based and numerical modeling techniques to study the topographic and erosional response to tectonic disturbance.
The position will be hosted in Pocatello, Idaho at in the Department of Geosciences at Idaho State University. Field work will occur in the northern Coast Ranges of California and in Puerto Rico. Project involves coordination and collaboration with co-PIs Nicole Gasparini (Tulane) and Jane Willenbring (UPenn). This project builds upon our initial 2013 publication in Geology and expands into more diverse tectonic settings.
We are seeking students with prior experience or interest in field observations, analysis of digital elevation data, numerical modeling and cosmogenic isotopes. If interested, please send a brief statement summarizing your motivations for graduate study and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions of clarification can also be sent to the same address. Applications will be evaluated as they arrive beginning 3/16/2015.
