Graduate Research Opportunities:
The PSL is currently seeking applicants that wish to pursue to work in a paleoclimatology research lab in the Department of Earth Sciences at IUPUI. The student will work on NSF funded research that could take them to places all over the world! Before, we have explored places such as Midwest U.S., Tibet, Peru, Colombia, and more.
The research will include extensive fieldwork in addition to a variety of laboratory and analytical activities. Familiarity with sediment cores, physical sedimentology and isotope geochemistry is desired, but not essential. Those seeking a M.Sc. are particularly encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send their C.V. directly to Dr. Broxton Bird. Please contact Dr. Bird with any questions about the positions.
