Graduate student opportunities at Penn State
Pennsylvania State University, Pennsylvania, United States
Start reviewing process: 27 September 2023

I’m currently looking for graduate students to join our research group ( in the Department of Geosciences at Penn State ( in Fall 2024. Our research generally focuses on the morphodynamics of rivers, deltas, and the coast. Research projects may vary depending on the student's interest, though several projects are already funded with student support, including a DOE project on how Arctic deltas modify fluxes of sediment and heat to the coast and a NASA project on seasonality of Arctic river discharge and sediment transport. There are also opportunities for river delta experiments in our newly constructed lab! Interested prospective students should email me their CV along with a brief description of their research experience and interests in advance of the application deadline.

The Department of Geosciences at Penn State no longer requires the GRE for graduate admissions. Detailed admissions info can be found here ( Applications to the graduate program are due December 15, but interested candidates are encouraged to reach out by email to discuss their experience and interests in advance of their application.

The Department of Geosciences is part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (, which houses research programs spanning a broad range of Earth and planetary science. The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences relies on the expertise, sensitivity and commitment of an inclusive faculty, staff, and student body to enhance diversity, seek equity, and create a welcoming environment within the community. We are committed to nurturing a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation.

Please feel free to reach out with questions or to discuss potential opportunities.
