Open Positions:

I am looking for passionate scientists-in-training! Openings currently exist at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

MSc position – Starting Fall 2019:
I am looking for a bright, enthusiastic student who loves geoscience and have excellent communication and organizational skills. Previous lab experience, particularly in petrology/volcanology/rock mechanics/geochemistry is very helpful.

Most magmas erupting at the surface of the Earth have been produced deep in the Mantle. The composition of these magmas can provide valuable information on their mantle source, the composition of the Mantle and consequently, on Earth differentiation. But there are likely to be modified through magma-rock interaction during their journey to the surface.
The two main objectives of the project are:
- Developing a new experimental method simulating magma circulation in the mantle
- Determining the conditions for the preservation of the geochemical signal of the source
Tools and Methods: one atmosphere furnace, electron microprobe, MicroCT, LA-ICP-MS

If you are interested, send me an email at with a cv and a cover letter describing your research interests.
Please review the department's admission page first.
Apply by January 15 for Fall admission.
