I am seeking a Ph.D. level graduate student to work on lithosphere-athenosphere boundary and attenuation studies of the central US. This work is part of the NELE Earthscope project.
I am also interested in MS and/or PhD students interested in global subduction zone studies. If you would like more information, please email me.
