MS and PhD graduate student assistantships are available for oceanographic research in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR. Ongoing research exists in exploring ice-ocean interactions in Greenland fjords, laboratory studies on glacial dynamics, and high-resolution numerical modeling of the ocean. We are looking for highly motivated students with a quantitative geology/oceanography background that could thrive in an interdisciplinary setting. The department is a small, diverse, and energetic group of faculty and students with broad research interests in earth and ocean sciences. The campus is located in beautiful Eugene at the foot of the Cascades in a geologically active setting and with extraordinary opportunity for outdoor activities.
Graduate students are supported either through teaching fellowships or graduate research assistantships. Outstanding candidates will be considered for the Johnston Fellowship, which provides an additional $5000 in funds for research expenses.
