  Please pass the following opportunity on to potential candidates.  Also,
note the January 15th deadline.

 The Department of Geology at Utah State University invites applications
for a Presidential Doctoral Research Fellowship starting during the
2014-2105 academic year. This 4-year PhD fellowship will pay all tuition
and a stipend of ~$20,000/year. Collaborative research will integrate
fieldwork and a variety of geochemical and geo- and thermochronologic
techniques to understanding processes in brittle fault zones and
continental tectonics.  Advisors and committee will consist of some
combination of Drs. Alexis Ault, James Evans, Susanne Janecke, and Dennis
Newell. Potential projects include use of new and existing labs both at USU
and other universities to date paleoearthquakes in iron-bearing fault
zones. We seek a motivated student with an MS, but will consider
outstanding candidates with BS or BA degrees. The Department of Geology at
USU is field oriented with a dynamic and growing faculty and graduate
program. We are located in Logan, Utah with close proximity to a wide
