The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Alabama seeks motivated students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in earthquake seismology. Support for two student research positions (1 MS, 1 PhD) is available starting Fall 2012 through an NSF-funded CAREER grant. Research projects will focus on characterizing the seismic structure beneath the northern Transantarctic Mountains. Prior research experience and computer programming skills are beneficial. Students must be willing and able to participate in several seasons of Antarctic fieldwork. For more information, please contact Dr. Samantha Hansen (email@example.com).
