Graduate Opportunities - Novel cosmogenic approaches for surficial processes and Quaternary geology - Purdue University - PRIME Lab

The new in situ cosmogenic 14C laboratory at Purdue University's PRIME Lab is seeking motivated new Ph.D. students interested in developing applications of in situ cosmogenic 14C (in situ 14C) for surficial process and Quaternary geologic studies. In situ 14C is produced by cosmic rays incident on terrestrial materials in a manner similar to other commonly measured in situ cosmogenic nuclides such as 10Be or 26Al. However, its significantly shorter half-life enables one to explore surface processes in ways previously unavailable using only long-lived or stable cosmogenic nuclides. In particular, we are looking for students interested in studying Holocene glacial chronologies and/or rapid surface processes. 

Purdue is a major research-extensive university in north-central Indiana that is well known internationally as a center for innovative research involving cosmogenic nuclide methods.  Our research community includes several faculty and a highly productive group of graduate students across earth sciences and physics.  PRIME Lab (the Purdue Rare Isotope Measurement Laboratory) is a dedicated national accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) facility funded by NSF, NASA and NIH.

Funded graduate assistantships are available, and applicants must have research experience (M.S. preferred) and strong quantitative and writing skills.  For more information contact Dr. Nat Lifton ([hidden email]; http://www.purdue.edu/eas/people/faculty/lifton.php). Purdue University is an Equal Opportunity/Equal Access/Affirmative Action employer fully committed to achieving a diverse student body.
