Ph.D. position in Geodynamics at the University of Miami
A Ph.D. assistantship is available in the Geodynamics group at the University of Miami. Starting Spring 2023, the successful applicant will investigate the dynamics of Western Pacific subduction zones using state-of-the-art numerical modeling techniques. Globally-spanning models, tailored to various geological and geophysical observables, will be used to constrain: i) the style of mantle flow beneath the Western Pacific, and ii), the strength of mechanical interactions between individual subduction zones and global-scale mantle convection.
Students with solid backgrounds in a quantitative discipline (geoscience, physics, engineering, etc.), a strong academic record, and prior Geophysics research exposure are encouraged to apply. If interested, please reach out to the Geodynamics group head, Dr. Adam Holt (firstname.lastname@example.org), with a short CV and brief statement of interest. Detailed information on the official application procedure can be found at https://graduate.rsmas.miami.edu/admissions/application-information/index.html.
Rosenstiel School, University of Miami
The successful applicant will become a member of the Department of Marine Geosciences (MGS) within the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science. MGS is home to faculty with a wide range of research focuses (Geodesy, Seismology, Geology, Geochemistry) and is located on the picturesque Rosenstiel School campus (Virginia Key, Miami). The Ph.D. assistantship provides 5 years of full support: salary, tuition, and health insurance.
