Research Positions Available!

Postdocs: The Rock Deformation lab seeks applicants for two postdoctoral positions to collaborate on NSF and DOE-funded projects. One position will focus on the high pressure / high temperature rheology of two-phase composites using a combination of laboratory experiments and microstructural analysis.  The ideal candidate will have extensive experience performing rock deformation experiments, as well as expertise in the collection and analysis of EBSD data.  The second position will be investigating the CO2 sequestration potential of natural fractured basalt, and will be working with a large team including Earth scientists and environmental engineers. This candidate should be expert in microprobe analysis and other microanalytic techniques. Contact Phil Skemer  for more details.

PhD Students: Both the Rock Deformation and Experimental Geochemistry labs are seeking new graduate students for the Fall of 2019. If you are interested in structural geology, rock mechanics, or geodynamics, and enjoy working with your hands, please contact Phil Skemer. If you are interested in geochemistry or petrology, please contact Mike Krawczynski. We would be happy to discuss our group, our research programs, and graduate education at Washington University in St Louis.

Undergraduates: If you are an undergraduate with an interest in Earth and Planetary Science, the ESPM group has opportunities to become involved in research.  Please see Phil Skemer or Mike Krawczynski for more information.
