PhD opportunity in Geophysics in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Missouri - Columbia
A highly motivated and academically strong graduate student is needed to work on an NSF-funded project studying fault locking and slow earthquakes in the Hikruangi, New Zealand, and Cascadia subduction zones.  This project utilizes existing GPS data and advanced computer-based inversion techniques, with the end goal of better constraining earthquake hazards in these areas.  Work on this project will involve collaboration with colleagues at GNS Science New Zealand, including travel to Wellington, New Zealand at least once.
Applicants should have a B.S. or M.S. degree in geophysics, physics, math, computer science, geology, or a closely related field.  Necessary skills include multivariate calculus, matrix or linear algebra, and some programming experience.  Experience with data inversion, geodesy, or MATLAB is a plus. For further information, please contact Dr. Noel Bartlow (bartlowno at missouri.edu<mailto:bartlowno at missouri.edu>; 573-882-0876).  More information about the Department of Geological Sciences and available facilities may be found at http://geology.missouri.edu/, and information about Dr. Bartlow’s research can be found at http://faculty.missouri.edu/~bartlowno/.  Our application deadline is January 31, 2016, although short extensions are possible if needed.
