The Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Alabama seeks a motivated student who is interested in pursuing graduate studies in earthquake seismology. Support for one is available starting Fall 2014 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. The student must be willing and able to participate in several seasons of Antarctic fieldwork. For more information, please contact Dr. Samantha Hansen (email@example.com).
