The student will work on funded projects developing and applying geo- and thermochronology methods to understand crustal formation and deformation, with field areas in the Himalaya and Appalachian mountains. Applicants should be comfortable with international travel and technical fieldwork in rugged terrain. Additional experience with geo- and/or thermochronology methods, and/or familiarity with numerical modeling would be great, but are not required.
The student will have access to cutting-edge equipment for fission-track and noble gas methods, laser ablation MC-ICP-MS, and a range of surface science and microscopy techniques (Raman, CL, SEM, TEM). The student will also have opportunities to collaborate with domestic and international scientists working across disciplines in geophysics, planetary science and materials engineering, with the potential to participate in additional projects developing and refining methods for extraterrestrial applications.
Interested students should email: firstname.lastname@example.org before October 1 with a CV/resume and paragraph summary of their research experience and/or interests. Please highlight any experience collaborating in diverse teams on complex projects. You can learn more about the TECHtonics group here: www.gatechtonics.info and the School of Earth and Atmospheric Science here:https://eas.gatech.edu/graduate/prospective-graduate-students. Our group strives to maintain an inclusive and collaborative environment and I encourage students from all walks of life to contact me. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
