Ph.D. student position, University of Alaska Fairbanks, sea ice geophysics

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) invites applications for a Ph.D. graduate studies opportunity in the geophysics program, for a project linking sea-ice transport properties (dielectric properties, permeability, etc.) to ice microstructure in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Utah and Victoria University Wellington (New Zealand). The project provides funding support (graduate student research fellowship starting in Fall 2010) and a tuition waiver. The successful candidate will work as part of a team of geophysicists, mathematicians and engineers, conducting microstructural analysis of sea ice at in situ temperatures using x-ray computed tomography in a cold lab at UAF. The project also has a strong field work component, based out of northern Alaska. Applicants with a background in either physics, geophysics or materials science (incl. engineering) are encouraged to apply.

More information on the sea-ice research group at UAF’s Geophysical Institute can be found at; background on UAF’s Geophysics graduate studies program is available at .
