Although this grad student opportunity is not related to GPS  
specifically, it would be wonderful if this could be posted in  
departments nationwide. In addition, next year (fall 2007) I will be  
looking to accept 1-2 new students at the Master's or Ph.D. level to  
work on earthquake and tectonic problems in Alaska. I will be working  
up a more specific description and posting it to my website this summer.

> Ph.D. Research Opportunity in Remote Sensing in Alaska
> The Geophysical Institute/University of Alaska-Fairbanks seeks a  
> doctoral
> student to process and analyze satellite imagery and airborne  
> geophysics
> data with the goal of interpreting and predicting the presence of
> near-surface features of engineering significance, such as ice-rich
> permafrost, potentially unstable slopes, and construction-materials
> resources.  This research will be in conjunction with the Alaska  
> Division of
> Geological & Geophysical Surveys (ADGGS).  In preparation for a  
> proposed gas
> pipeline in Alaska, ADGGS is conducting a detailed geologic study of a
> portion of the projected pipeline corridor.  As part of this study,  
> airborne
> geophysics data were acquired of the project area.  The  
> configuration of the
> data was designed to maximize information of the near-surface  
> materials,
> such as the location of permafrost.  Innovative research utilizing
> geophysics, satellite imagery, geologic mapping, and limited  
> borehole data
> is needed to develop and evaluate reliable predictive models for the
> presence of permafrost and other features.
> The successful applicant will have a strong background in geology and
> geophysics, and experience in remote sensing data processing and  
> analysis.
> Familiarity with GIS, sub-arctic landscape processes, and geologic  
> hazards
> are assets.  The student will be expected to participate in field work
> during the summer, which is often physically demanding.
> Applicants for the research position should send an e-mail  
> containing a
> complete academic CV, a statement of research interests, English  
> proficiency
> certification, and the name and contact information for three academic
> references to Dr. Anupma Prakash at prakash at gi.alaska.edu.  The
