PhD opportunity in field geomorphology at UCLA
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), California, United States
Start reviewing process: 2 December 2022

Hi all,

I am looking to recruit a new PhD student to join my research group in Fall 2023 in the Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences department at UCLA. The position is fully funded by an active NSF grant and involves field work on aeolian dunes in Death Valley and elsewhere. Other dissertation topics could include projects related to aeolian geology and geomorphology on other planets (Mars, Venus,Titan, etc), projects involving numerical modeling, or experimental projects using UCLA's sediment transport wind tunnel. Specific topics will be worked out based on the student's interest, but demonstrated field experience/competence is a strict requirement. Students interested in completing a PhD in either Geology or Planetary Science are welcome to apply.

Interested prospective students should send a resume/CV to Professor Mackenzie Day at
