International Opportunity for Graduate Students in Volcanology:
US-Russia-Japan Partnership in Volcanological Research and Education
**********************************************************************
From: Jeff Freymueller <jeff at giseis.alaska.edu>


The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) announces the availability of 
four
summer internships for graduate students from other US universities in
seismology, crustal deformation, igneous petrology, and physical 
volcanology.
Successful applicants will become members of a US-Russia-Japan team 
comparing
the response of crustal magma systems to catastrophic decompression at
Bezymianny and Sheveluch Volcanoes, Kamchatka, Russia, and Mount St 
Helens,
Washington. The research is especially timely in view of renewed 
eruptive
activity at Mount St Helens. The 5-year project is part of the National 
Science
Foundation’s new program, Partners in International Research and 
Education
(PIRE), which seeks to introduce US graduate students to internationally
collaborative science. The ideal student participant will be at an 
early or
middle stage of her or his PhD program, be physically and mentally 
prepared for
rigorous field investigations under difficult conditions, and have a 
strong
interest in international collaboration and understanding. It is also 
desirable
that the student’s major advisor share an interest in the research and,
although not a requirement, that the work can become a component of the
student’s PhD program. Additional information and application forms can 
be
obtained at www.uaf.edu/geology. The deadline for application is March 
1, and
the 2006 field team will be chosen by April 1.
