Ph.D. and M.S. opportunities in Seismology at Purdue University starting Fall 2020

The Computational Seismology and Tectonics group in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University seeks highly motivated M.S. and Ph.D. students to work on a broad spectrum of seismological and tectonics topics. As part of a multidisciplinary department, students work in a collaborative environment and get exposure to a variety of expertise in earth and planetary systems, such as seismology, geodesy, petrology, lithosphere dynamics, tectonics, structural geology, planetary geology, and broader earth system interactions. Representatives of the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University will attend GSA and AGU meetings to answer any questions about student opportunities in the department. 

Students with B.S. or M.S. degree in geophysics, geology, engineering, physics, mathematics, computer science, or closely related fields are all welcome to apply. To be considered for financial support, please submit your application for M.S and Ph.D. positions by January 2, 2020, for Fall 2020 admission. Please check http://www.eaps.purdue.edu/for_students/graduate/grad_admissions.html for application requirements. Applicants are encouraged to contact the following faculty to discuss potential projects. 

1. Dr. Xiaotao Yang (xtyang<at>purdue.edu)

Ph.D. and M.S. opportunities to apply and develop high-resolution seismic imaging methods (receiver functions, ambient seismic noise, and others) to solve problems in tectonics, earthquake and volcano hazards, and transient velocity changes. Regions of interest include but are not limited to the Aleutian-Alaska margin and the continental interior, the North-American mid-continent, and the western United States. Full financial support, including teaching assistantships and research assistantships, will be provided for both M.S and Ph.D. students. Applicants can find more information about Dr. Yang's research at  http://www.eaps.purdue.edu/people/faculty-pages/yang.html

2. Dr. Jonathan Delph (jdelph<at>purdue.edu)

Ph.D. and M.S. opportunities to apply and develop passive-source seismic imaging and seismic interferometry techniques to the tectonics/geodynamics of Earth. Specific research projects include linking slab dynamics to tectonics in the eastern Mediterranean, investigating variations in crustal and upper mantle properties in the Pacific Northwest, and improving models for seismic wave propagation. Other opportunities may develop that involve shallow (upper crustal) seismic imaging and linking petrological and seismological observations. Full financial support, including teaching assistantships and research assistantships, will be provided for both M.S and Ph.D. students. Applicants can find more information about Dr. Delph’s research at http://www.eaps.purdue.edu/people/faculty-pages/delph.html

3. Dr. Robert L. Nowack (nowack<at>purdue.edu)

M.S. opportunities in theoretical and applied seismology and GeoData Science. Recent studies have included Marchenko imaging with application to carbon sequestration, seismic body-wave interferometry using the autocorrelation of ambient noise, machine learning for seismic inversion, and iterative time-domain deconvolution for time-varying seismic data. A seismic array is currently being deployed to study unconventional seismic sources and their use in interferometric imaging. Dr. Nowack is a coordinator for the Purdue Geodata Science Professional Master’s program (more information can be found at https://www.eaps.purdue.edu/gdsp/). Applicants can find more information about Dr. Nowack’s research at https://web.ics.purdue.edu/~nowack/.
