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 here.
Application deadline is January 15, 2019. More details on the graduate program are available here. 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.
