A PhD scholarship at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of
Earth & Environmental Science is available as part of the Luquillo Critical
Zone Observatory working primarily with Dr. Jane Willenbring (
http://www.sas.upenn.edu/~erosion/). The starting date is the beginning of
the fall 2014 semester, or as agreed upon.
The PhD project will be designed in part by the student, but will broadly
focus on aspects of fine sediment production and transport, and it is
expected that training in geochronological techniques (meteoric and in
situ-produced cosmogenic nuclide analysis) will play an important role. The
PhD students will work closely with a team of researchers including Dr.
Jane Willenbring, Dr. Doug Jerolmack and Dr. Alain Plante, who will oversee
the Penn portion of the project (http://criticalzone.org/luquillo/) as well
as many scientists from outside of the Penn community. Full training in
cosmogenic nuclide analysis will be supervised by Dr. Jane Willenbring.
We are seeking applicants with a BSc(Hons), or Diploma, or MSc, or
equivalent qualifications in geochemistry, geology, hydrology, or
geomorphology. Creativity and some knowledge of quantitative geomorphology,
sediment transport or hydrology would be an advantage but is not essential,
along with some experience with laboratory work and desire for adventurous
Expressions of interest should be directed to Dr. Jane Willenbring (
erosion at sas.upenn.edu). Information on the Penn EES graduate program is
online (http://www.sas.upenn.edu/earth/graduate.htm) as is the application
‘Penn ExpressApp’ (https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=upenn-g). The
application can be submitted until January 15, 2014.
