Open PhD Positions at URSeismology

University of Rochester

Posted: 09/28/2018

Open Until: 01/01/2019

The University of Rochester seismological laboratory (URSeismo) at the
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences is seeking applications
from highly motivated Masters and Ph.D. students to work on research
opportunities in global lithospheric structure. Research at URSeismo will
involve developing high-performance computing tools that process large
amounts of ground vibration waveform data for Earth imaging. Interested
students may explore research projects in marine seismology, crustal
structure, ambient-noise spectral analysis, Bayesian inversion, and data
sciences in solid earth geophysics. URSeismo maintains high-performance
computing resources in-house, and dedicated nodes at the center for
integrated computing, CIRC. A chart of possible research projects can be
found at

Application deadline is January 15, 2019 . For more details on the graduate
program, see Early application is encouraged.
Interested students may also set up an appointment before the deadline to
discuss their interests: Students in the area
can schedule a visit to the lab.

Application for undergraduate summer research experience is strongly
recommended. This is a 10-week fully funded summer internship, which will
provide research experience that can strengthen the student's application for
the subsequent admissions cycle. The internship is co-sponsored by IRIS,
Kearns Center, URSeismo fellowships, and the CIRC summer programming
school. Apply here for the summer of 2019 (strongly encouraged for Ph.D.
2019/2020 applicants). The deadline is February 1, 2019 .
