Masters student position studying Antarctic subglacial geochemisty

Joseph Graly
Hello Cryolisters,

             Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis currently has a funded project studying geochemical processes in East Antarctica to explore Antarctica’s role in global geochemical cycles, including assessing the degree to which the ice sheet modulates climate through subglacial geochemistry. The project will employ chemistry, mineralogy and isotope analyses to assess the rate and type of chemical alteration occurring beneath the ice.

We are looking to recruit a Masters student to work on analyzing samples collected from the Transantarctic Mountains, focusing on their chemical characterization and measuring meteoric 10Be in specifically extracted phases. The samples were collected in the course of previous projects, so there will not be a field work component. Some background in geochemistry and mineralogy is desired, as well as interest in glaciers and Earth’s climate system. The student will be supported through a research fellowship in the first year and a teaching fellowship in the second year. The stipend is $19,000 per year and tuition costs will be covered. Additionally, a University Fellowship may be available to highly qualified applicants. The student can start in either January or August, 2019.

If you could pass this along to any undergraduates you think might be interested, we'd greatly appreciate it. More information about our research group can be found at: https://iu.edu/~antrock. More information about the graduate program in Earth Sciences at IUPUI is here: https://earthsciences.iupui.edu/department-earth-sciences/graduate. Interested students should contact Joseph Graly ([hidden email]) or Kathy Licht ([hidden email]). Students seeking a January start will need to apply in September, 2018.


Sincerely,


Joseph Graly
