Job description

Graduate Student and Post-doc Opportunities in Computational Geophysical Studies of Mid-Ocean Ridges
Two individuals (graduate students and/or post-docs) are sought to join a research team led by Boston College and the University of Hawaii-USA, collaborating with scientists from ENS Paris-France and University of Mainz-Germany, in carrying out high-performance computer simulations of the 4-D interaction of faulting and magmatism at mid-ocean ridge segments near transform and non-transform offsets. We seek individuals with strong backgrounds in math and physics, experience in computer modeling, good writing skills, and keen interests in geophysical research. Contact Prof. Garrett Ito, gito@hawaii.edu and Prof. Mark Behn, mark.behn@bc.edu. Graduate-student applications are January 10 (BC) and January 15 (UH); post-doctoral applications are due soon thereafter.
