Graduate student and postdoc opportunities at Washington University in St. Louis
Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, United States
Apply before: 1 January 2020

I am recruiting interested PhD students and postdocs to join my research group at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) in 2020.

Projects should largely be dictated by individual research interests, but jumping off points include:

  • "Unpacking" the state function of incipient motion in gravel rivers
  • Interplay of abrasion and plucking as mechanisms for bedrock incision
  • Biological and physical controls on the evolution of rocky coasts
  • Erosion and geomorphology in the Ozark Mountains

The WUSTL geomorphology lab utilizes a using a combination of approaches, including (but not limited to) physical experiments, numerical methods, environmental seismology, and other field observations. Students and postdocs are expected to be comfortable with quantitative methods of scientific inquiry. More information can be found on my personal webpage: https://cmasteller.wixsite.com/geomorph/opportunities.

Interested students and postdocs are encouraged to contact me directly (cmasteller@epsc.wustl.edu) and include some information regarding their research interests, previous experience, and a copy of their CV.

Prospective post-docs are encouraged to include a one page statement of interest including specific project ideas with their inquiry.

Potential students can find more information regarding the graduate program and application process here: https://eps.wustl.edu/graduate. Applications are due January 1, 2020.

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (https://artsci.wustl.edu/) at WUSTL houses a diverse set of researchers with strengths in geochemistry, geophysics, geobiology, and planetary science. WUSTL EPS also has strong ties with the Tyson Environmental Research Center and Field Station (https://tyson.wustl.edu/), the McDonnell Center for Space Sciences (https://mcss.wustl.edu/), and the Fossett Lab for Virtual Planetary Exploration (https://virtualplanet.wustl.edu/).
