U of Oregon- Graduate Student Opportunity
MS and PhD graduate student assistantships are available for oceanographic research in the
Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR. Ongoing
research exists in exploring ice-ocean interactions in Greenland fjords, dynamics of
estuaries and the coastal ocean, and high-resolution numerical modeling of the ocean. We
are looking for highly motivated students with a quantitative geology/oceanography
background that could thrive in an interdisciplinary setting. The department is a small,
diverse, and energetic group of faculty and students with broad research interests in earth
and ocean sciences. The campus is located in beautiful Eugene at the foot of the Cascades
in a geologically active setting and with extraordinary opportunity for outdoor activities.
Interested students should contact Prof. David Sutherland for more information and with
questions (http://pages.uoregon.edu/dsuth/). Applications for Fall 2012 are due Jan. 10,
2012 and are available online (http://pages.uoregon.edu/dogsci/).
