MS or PhD student, Starting Spring 2018, University of Alabama

I am looking for a graduate student to work on questions relating to sedimentology, stratigraphy, geochemistry, and/or invertebrate paleontology of Cretaceous-Paleogene age deposits in India. The position is funded using a mix of RA and TA funding, with opportunities for internal scholarships and fellowships. Field work in India is an essential component of this project. Applications are needed by the end of September.

A successful candidate will have performed well in several relevant classes like Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, Geochemistry, or Invertebrate Paleontology. They must have field work experience, either as part of a research project or through a geological field course, and experience in challenging field locations is a plus. Research experience, good writing skills, and publication records will also be viewed favorably.

Interested students should contact Dr. Tom Tobin (ttobin@ua.edu) prior to submitting an application. Students from underrepresented demographics in geological sciences are encouraged to apply.
