Dear colleagues,

Please forward to any potentially interested students.


*Graduate Research Assistantship (PhD) Available to Study Ground Water
Dynamics with Space Geodetic Methods*
New Mexico Tech's Department of Earth and Environmental Science has a PhD
Research Assistantship available beginning in the Fall 2018 for a student
to study how groundwater dynamics manifest in surface deformation and how
these changes affect the Earth's gravity field. The goal of the project is
to characterize aquifers and their dynamics from NASA GRACE(-FO) and ESA
Sentinel-1 data, and local well and wastewater reinjection records. The
project is jointly funded by NASA's Earth Surface and Interior and Water
and Energy Cycle programs through a New Investigator Program award.

The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at NM Tech has strong
programs in Hydrology and Geophysics as well as in Geology and
Geochemistry. Several research and instrumentation centers such as the
National Radio Astronomy Observatory, IRIS PASSCAL, the New Mexico Bureau
of Geology and Mineral Resources, and the Petroleum Recovery Research
Center are housed on NM Tech’s campus and create a vibrant science

Interested students should send a cover letter addressing their
quantitative background and a CV to Ronni Grapenthin (rg at nmt.edu). Review
will begin 1. May 2018.
