PhD Position at Purdue University

Elliott, Julie L

We seek a PhD student for a project that will refine and integrate models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) in southeastern Alaska and western Canada.  GNSS measurements, paleo sea-level measurements, tide gauge observations, and satellite imagery will be used to constrain a GIA model that will lead to a better understanding of properties of the Earth and complex regional crustal motions.  The project will be supervised by Dr. Julie Elliott (Purdue University) and Dr. Thomas James (Geological Survey of Canada and School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Victoria).


Applicants should have a background in geophysics, physics, mathematics, computer science, or a closely related field.  Applicants with experience in programming or geodesy are particularly encouraged to apply.  Visit for general information about the application process.  For more information about the project, contact Dr. Elliott ([hidden email]).


Applications received by January 2, 2018 will receive priority consideration.
