We have multiple Ph.D. positions available within the Seismology, Geodesy, and Geodynamics group at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (University of Miami) to begin Fall 2020. Students with backgrounds in geology/geophysics or another quantitative discipline (physics/math/engineering), a strong academic record, and computer programming skills are particularly encouraged to apply. Prospective students should make contact with a potential advisor, as listed below, prior to submitting an official application (deadline: February 1st).

Geodynamics: Research projects utilize numerical modeling – in conjunction with geological observations – to investigate the dynamics of deformation at subduction zones and within the underlying convecting mantle. Contact Dr. Adam Holt (aholt<at><aholt<at>>) for more information.

Seismology: Research topics include, but are not limited to, seismic structural and source studies in volcanoes to gain insights into the interactions of seismic and magmatic processes. Contact Dr. Guoqing Lin (glin<at><glin<at>>) for more details.

Geodesy: Research topics include observations of the seismic cycle and volcano geodesy, with particular focus on tectonic-magmatic interactions and hydrogeology by combining InSAR observations with GRACE, with focus on India and/or the Middle East. Contact Dr. Falk Amelung (famelung<at><famelung<at>>) for more information.

Successful applicants will become members of the Department of Marine Geosciences, which is home to faculty with a diverse range of research focuses and is located on the picturesque Rosenstiel School campus (Virginia Key, Miami). Information on the official application procedure can be found at:
