The University of Rochester seismological laboratory (URSeismo) is seeking applications from motivated PhD students to work on research opportunities in lithospheric structure and seismology. Research projects include NSF funded proposals. We use large amounts of ground vibration waveform data for earth imaging, time series waveform and spectral analysis, Bayesian inversion, etc. More details about this (and other) research projects can be found on:
Positions @URSeismo (updated: Oct. ’20) Ph.D. students and Postdocs: Our group is actively recruiting highly motivated Ph.D. students to join our team. Interested students need not have any prior programming experience. A keen interest in the team‘s research and a solid
Making the invisible, visible: We build images of the earth’s interior using sensors that listen to ground vibration. It’s like holding a stethoscope to the earth’s surface and using a computer to reconstruct the anatomy of the planet (read more).
Philosophy: Creating memorable learning experiences, inculcating scientific attitudes and skills, expanding scientific knowledge. All happening in (non-) traditional settings, e.g. research lab, on the field, office hours, high school outreach and recruitment, and public lectures.
