Job description

The Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island seeks a motivated PhD student in the field of marine seismology and geophysics. The selected student will study the mantle plume – spreading center interaction near the Galapagos. The student will participate in the deployment and recovery of ocean-bottom seismometers (https://www.soest.hawaii.edu/GG/FACULTY/ITO/Galapagos_Expedition_ApplyToSail) and collaborate with a group of seismologists and geodynamicists from several institutions in the analysis and interpretation of an amazingly rich set of seismic data. The student will gain skills and experiences in data processing and analysis, high-performance computing, inverse method, seismic tomography, and more. The candidates should have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in geophysics, earth sciences, physics, or other related fields. Experience in computer programming and seismic data analysis is preferred. Applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Yang Shen (yshen@uri.edu) before applying. More details about potential research projects can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/seismo/.

Applications are considered for both spring 2023 AND fall 2023 admissions until the position is filled. For fall admission, the deadline is January 15, 2023. Interested students should submit their applications at https://web.uri.edu/gso/academics/admission/.

GRE is no longer required. The online Duolingo English test is an acceptable alternative to TOEFL for international students, if English is not their native language.
