Graduate Student Opportunities
The graduate program in geophysics offers opportunities for quantitative studies in the fields of fault mechanics, continental and marine tectonics, active- and passive-source seismology, mid-ocean ridge and hotspot dynamics, ice physics, and geomechanics. We offer a collegial, supportive environment focused on developing skilled scientists. Qualified, enthusiastic students who wish to explore interdisciplinary research on fundamental geophysical problems are encouraged to apply. Research apprenticeships and teaching assistantships fund student research towards a Ph.D or M.S. Visit the department’s webpage for additional information and application forms. The application deadline for fall enrollment is January 10. Students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members to learn more about specific research opportunities.
