PhD student sought for a NSF funded project to study landscape evolution and geomorphology in Antarctica.
Collaborative Research: Long Term Sublimation/Preservation of Two Separate, Buried Glacier Ice Masses, Ong Valley, Southern Transantarctic Mountains; Jaakko Putkonen: University of North Dakota, Daniel Morgan: Vanderbilt University, and
Greg Balco: Berkeley Geochronology Center. The graduate research requires travel and work in Antarctica for a period of about two months. The home institution for the student will be University of North Dakota, Harold Hamm School of Geology and Geological
Engineering, Grand Forks, ND. However, he/she will be advised and will be collaborating with all the project leaders listed above. Also, travel between institutions may be required.
The field work in Antarctica will include ice coring and sampling. The sample processing is done at the home institution.
