The Department of Geosciences at Boise State University has a number of research opportunities for graduate students interested in shallow applied geophysics. Funding is available for students at both the Masters and PhD levels. Current projects include development of modeling, imaging, data processing, and analysis tools for applications in glacier geophysics, environmental geophysics, hydrogeophysics, paleoclimate investigations, geothermal characterization, and geohazards.
Successful applicants will join the geophysics research group at Boise State which has a growing reputation in near-surface geophysics including reflection seismology, ground-penetrating radar, electrical and electromagnetic geophysics, and engineering seismology. Additional information about geophysical research at BSU can be found at http://cgiss.boisestate.edu. Boise State is a growing institution (>18,000 students) serving Idaho’s metropolitan center. As the state’s capital and business, financial and cultural center, Boise is consistently recognized as one of America’s best places to live. A favorable cost of living, coupled with moderate climate and a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities, contribute to an outstanding quality of life. A vibrant intellectual community draws from scientists at the University, regional high-tech industries, and numerous state and federal agencies.
