Are you a physics, geoscience, or engineering student with a passion for the natural world? Do you enjoy exploring landscapes AND working with interesting math problems?
Hari Rajaram and Ciaran Harman at Johns Hopkins University are looking to recruit a doctoral student for a project exploring the complex interactions between tectonic stress, climate, and geochemistry shaping the terrestrial landscape. You will have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge numerical models to study the physics and chemistry of the Earth's surface. You will also have the chance to test your hypotheses and compare your results with data from real-world research sites. The position is funded by a research grant from the National Science Foundation Critical Zone Observatories program.
We aim to foster a collaborative, supportive academic environment with each other and with colleagues across the university, and have particularly close connections to earth and planetary sciences, and public health divisions of the university. The Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins is one of the top-ranked engineering programs in the country. It is located in Baltimore, Maryland, which has a vibrant culture, close proximity to DC and NYC, and a low cost of living.Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for information on applying. The successful applicant will have a background in differential equations and programming, and some relevant domain knowledge (e.g. fluid mechanics, inorganic chemistry, geomechanics, hydrology, geology, environmental science, but not necessarily all of these).
