Graduate-Student Opportunities in Planetary Surface Processes at Stanford

Prospective graduate students interested in planetary surface processes are invited to apply to join the Earth & Planetary Surface Processes group in the Department of Geological Sciences at Stanford, for a start date in the fall of 2020. We focus on utilizing the diverse planetary bodies of the Solar System as full scale experiments to develop and test our quantitative understanding of surface processes, and deciphering the hydrologic and climate histories of planets (including Earth) through the lens of surface processes.

Prospective graduate students should demonstrate strong quantitative skills and motivation to apply concepts of geomorphology and sedimentology to the study of planetary surfaces and rocks. The next application deadline to the department’s graduate program is January 7, 2020. Please contact Prof. Lapotre at [email protected] with any questions.
