PhD opportunities - University of Miami
University of Miami, Florida, United States
Apply before: 1 December 2023

I'm looking for prospective Ph.D. students to join my research group at the University of Miami in a fully funded 5-year Ph.D. program. My research broadly focuses on the interactions of climate, past climate change, and surface processes that shape Earth’s landscapes, using a mix of computational and observational tools. More specific possible research areas include:
  • Remote sensing of the Everglades to study hydrologic and ecological response to remediation efforts and climate change
  • Geophysical and climatic drivers of ice-age sea-level changes in the Florida/Caribbean region
  • Sedimentary, tectonic, and sea-level evolution of passive margins and the continental shelf-slope break

I encourage any interested prospective students to reach out to me at to discuss potential research. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but highest priority will be given to those received by December 1st.

Located on scenic Virginia Key in Miami Florida, the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Sciences is a leading research institution in earth and marine sciences. For more information about the Ph.D. program, visit the Department of Marine Geosciences webpage at

Please spread the word to anyone you know considering a Ph.D. program!
