Student Opportunity Announcements

Graduate student assistantship, Coastal Oceanography

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 the dynamics of estuaries
and the coastal ocean, high-resolution numerical modeling of the ocean, and ice-ocean
interactions in Greenland fjords. 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.

Interested
students should contact Prof. David Sutherland for more information and with
questions (http://pages.uoregon.edu/dsuth/). Applications for Fall 2014 are due
Jan. 10, 2014 and are available online (http://pages.uoregon.edu/dogsci/).
