Title: Graduate student positions of geochemistry and geophysics at Michigan State University

The Geochemistry and Geophysics research groups in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Michigan State University are recruiting M.S. and Ph.D. students to start Fall 2020!

Our research groups offer opportunities to study tectonics and petrology at field sites around the globe, to image the Earth’s interior, and to model physical and chemical processes using laboratory and computational methods. Dynamic processes of our planet’s interior over its history generated Earth’s habitable surface and are responsible for the natural distribution of mineral resources and geologic hazards including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis.

Research and teaching assistantships are available for highly qualified applicants and are awarded in fall of each year. In addition, several fellowships and scholarships provide additional financial support for summer stipends, conference travel, and research and field expenses. Thanks to our generous alumni, the EES department offers the most awards per capita of any department at MSU.

Interested students should visit our prospective graduate student webpage ( and feel free to contact faculty directly via email.
All are welcome to drop by our booths at GSA and AGU fall meetings!
